       Title: STUFFED VENISON PINWHELLS
  Categories: Meats, Wild game
       Yield: 8 servings
  
       2    Whole venison backstraps,
            Rolled out 1/4 in. thick
       1 qt Whole milk
       2 ts Wild game seasoning
       1 lb Velveeta cheese
       1 cn Rotel tomatoes with diced
            Chiles
       2 lb Thinly sliced lean bacon
     1/2 c  Thinly sliced green onions
       8    Cloves garlic, finely mince
  
   First, prepare the backstrap fillet. It’s an extremely tender tubelike
   piece of meat about 12 inches long and 2 to 3 inches in diameter. And
   because of its shape, it can be cut around the perimeter, 1/4 inch thick,
   and rolled out flat. To do this, you need a very sharp knife.
   Start by laying out the fillet perpendicular to your body and making a
   shallow slice about 1/4 inch deep in the meat. Then, as if slicing through
   and unrolling paper towels from a roll, begin working around the outside
   perimeter of the fillet until the backstrap comes out looking like a round
   steak. It takes a little practice to do ... but you can do it!
   When the meat is ready, place both pieces into a glass or plastic
   container and cover them with whole milk. You want to marinate the venison
   for at least 6 hours, but preferably overnight. The milk tenderizes the
   deer and helps to remove any unwanted gamey flavor.
   After the marination process, remove the meat from the milk (you can
   discard the milk), and pat the venison dry with several paper towels. Then
   liberally sprinkle both sides with wild game seasoning and rub it briskly
   into the meat.
   At this point, preheat your oven to 400 degrees. Then, in your food
   processor, mix together the Velveeta cheese and the Rotel tomatoes until
   smooth and creamy.
   When you're ready to make the pinwheels, spread a thin layer of the cheese
   mixture evenly over one side of the deer. Then place a layer of bacon
   strips - side by side - on top of the cheese. Finish up the preparation by
   lightly sprinkling on a little sliced green onions and a little minced
   garlic.
   Now tightly roll up the flattened fillets and set them aside momentarily.
   Then on the same work surface, lay out another 8 to 10 strips of bacon
   side by side and put one of the rolled backstraps on top of them. Now wrap
   the bacon strips around the venison and pin them in place with toothpicks.
   When you are finished, the backstrap should be completely encased in bacon
   strips. Repeat with the other backstrap.
   All that’s left is to take a sharp knife, slice the rolled venison into 2
   inch thick pinwheels, position them on a shallow cookie sheet, and bake
   them - uncovered - in the oven for about 40 to 45 minutes. You'll notice
   that a light sauce will form in the bottom of the cookie sheet; you can
   use this to baste the pinwheels as they cook. The one thing you don't want
   to do is overcook the venison - it will come out dry and chewy instead of
   juicy and tender if you do!
   Chef’s Note: If you don't have wild game seasoning on hand, you can
   lightly sprinkle the venison with salt, black pepper, onion powder, garlic
   powder, and sweet basil as a substitute. Unfortunately, most spice
   manufacturers don't make a premixed wild game seasoning, but my company
   does. If you'd like me to send you some, simply call 1-800-742-4231
