Whether you’re hosting a Super Bowl party, cheering on your favorite college football team, or tailgating for a baseball game, these venison Philly cheese wonton bites are one of our favorites. I sure do love an excuse to eat more than I should every once in a while, especially when venison is involved!

My wife loves a classic Philly cheesesteak, so with the Kansas City Chiefs taking on the Philadelphia Eagles this Super Bowl this year, these appetizers are mandatory on our gameday menu. I think you’ll find them an easy and delicious way to incorporate venison into any party!
