Recipe contributed by Field Staff Writer G. Ford.

This is a seriously simple recipe that turns out a classic, delicious meatloaf.  This is a great dish to knock out when you want to cook at home, but do not want a lot of prep work.  From start to finish, you can be done and eating in about 90 minutes.  Really, the only work this recipe requires is mixing ingredients in a bowl.  There is plenty of room for customization in this recipe, for folks who would like to add or substitute in interesting ingredients (bacon certainly comes to mind). 

Prep Time: 10 minutes
Cook Time: ~75 minutes

Ingredients:

2 lbs. Ground Venison

2 Large Eggs

1 Box (6 oz) StoveTop Stuffing

1 Cup Water

1 Small/Medium Sized Yellow Onion, Chopped

1/4 Cup Barbeque Sauce

1 TBSP Ground Black Pepper

1 TBSP Salt

Directions:

1) Preheat oven to 375 degrees.

2) Beat eggs in a small bowl.

3) Combine all ingredients in a mixing bowl and gently mix together until the mixture is even.  The first setting of a KitchenAid mixer is ideal, or you can you use your (clean) hands.

4) Place the mixture into a meatloaf pan that you have greased with butter.  Then, brush 1/4 – 1/2 cup of BBQ sauce on the top.

5) Place into the oven, uncovered, for 60 – 90 minutes, or until internal temperature is 165 degrees.

Venison Meatloaf Preperation

I was amazed how simple of a preparation turned out such a great result.  After my first plate, I couldn’t help myself.  I went back for seconds, which I slathered in ketchup.  It might be blasphemy for game meat to touch ketchup, but something about meatloaf and ketchup just go hand-in-hand, for me.  Enjoy with a big, bold red wine, and you are going to be smiling.
