For gourmands that enjoy wild game, wild rice, and wild fruits, these recipes are flavorful in unique ways and easy to prepare.

Mad Hatter's Wild Beast Omelet

This recipe is handy for making a tasty dish from your leftover wild game, but you can use any shredded or chunked meat you have at home, whether it is bear, deer, beef, turkey, chicken or duck.I n a pinch, even hamburger will do.

Salmon is also tasty in this dish, but some other fish meats may fall apart. We can call the dish made from any meat source "wild beast" for the kids.

      There seems to be a lot of choices to eat something "wild". (lol) Great alternatives to choose from and since its summer, I'm planning to try making your wild strawberry salad. Thanks for sharing this wonderful 'wild' hub! :-)
