Venison Skillet Bake w/ Kale and Greens

Venison Oven Bake with Stove Top Stuffing

I think we could easily call this Venison Bake the Super Super Food Venison Bake. I tricked the kids into thinking it was simply meat and cheese with Stove Top Stuffing — but as soon as they dug into the skillet – they knew I had added a lot of additional greens including kale, collard greens and spinach. I have to say that this was a Super Flavorful recipe that was devoured entirely within the half hour.
