LEFTOVER VENISON BREAKFAST:
Refrigerate leftover steak or roast. In the morning, cut into
bite-size pieces. Chop some onions (if you have some
small green onions, use the tops also). Melt some butter
in a frying pan and saute the onion until tender. Add the
diced venison and stir for a few minutes. Add a little hot
black coffee and bring to a boil. Reduce heat and salt and
pepper to taste. Sprinkle in a little flour very, very slowly, stirring
constantly, until you get gravy the way you
like it. Add more coffee if necessary. Serve over hot bis- cuits.
