    In 12-inch nonstick skillet, cook bacon over medium heat 5 to 7 minutes or until crisp. Using slotted spoon, transfer to small bowl. Increase heat to medium-high. Add venison to bacon drippings in skillet. Cook 5 to 7 minutes, stirring frequently, until venison is thoroughly cooked; do not drain.

    Stir in ketchup and mustard. Stir in milk, hot water, and uncooked pasta and sauce mix (from Hamburger Helper™ box). Heat to boiling, stirring occasionally. Reduce heat; cover and simmer 11 to 13 minutes, stirring occasionally, until pasta is tender and most of liquid is absorbed. Top with bacon. Serve with remaining ingredients.

Expert Tips

  • Cooking the venison in bacon drippings adds flavor and much-needed fat to the super-lean venison.
