A yummy twist to an old favorite. The frybread makes the difference. It's a popular request at my house. I do up everything but the frybread in advance, and just heat up before serving. Leftover frybread can be used as dessert - coat it with cinnamon and sugar, and drizzle with honey.
My husband is a avid hunter and we make this sausage every year. We add pork to the venison because the venison has such a low fat content. For the pork we get really fatty looking roast ground at our grocery store.
Lots of fresh vegetables and elbow macaroni in a hearty chicken stock are the stars of this standard minestrone. The recipe calls for only minced garlic, dried parsley, and salt for seasoning -- great when you are using really fresh and flavorful produce
