Hunting is a way of life in the United States, and we are here to help you be as successful on the hunt as possible.
This is one of the many basic meatloaf recipes, but this one uses ground venison in the place of ground beef and with a spaghetti sauce base. The recipe is easy to pull together and does not make a mess because you mix in one bowl and best of all — it is tasty. Pair the meatloaf with mash potatoes and brown gravy, along with your favorite vegetable and hot rolls. It makes a fulfilling comfort food meal summer or winter.
Since venison is naturally lean, which can lead to dryness, the eggs, spaghetti sauce and uncooked bacon strips add moisture and a little fat, making the meatloaf moist. If the meatloaf seems like it needs a little more moisture when you are mixing things together, add a bit more spaghetti sauce until the loaf achieves the desired consistency. When it comes to the mustard topping, any type you prefer will work well.
