Soak elk heart overnight in cold water. Simmer in large kettle for 1 to 1½ hours. Season broth to taste; garlic powder, pepper, and bay leaves, plus 1 small diced onion may be used. Pour off and retain all but about ½ cup of broth.
In large bowl, combine dressing mix and add sage. Heat to boiling the stock poured off of heart and add margarine. Use just enough broth to thoroughly moisten dressing. Spoon dressing around heart in a baking dish or Dutch oven and bake for 1½-2 hours at 350 degrees.
When done, slice heart ¼ to ½" thick and serve hot. (Leftovers make good sandwiches.)
Your Baked Elk Heart with Sage Dressing is ready. Good luck!
