Ingredients

Meatloaf

  • 2 lbs ground Venison (blended with fat)
  • 1 cup Breadcrumbs
  • 1 cup Beef broth
  • 2 Eggs (beaten)
  • cup grated Onion
  • ¼ cup finely chopped Parsley
  • 2 tablespoons Tomato paste
  • 1 tablespoon Brown Mustard
  • 1 ½ tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
  • 1 ½ teaspoon Table salt
  • ½ teaspoon Paprika
  • ½ teaspoon Garlic powder
  • ½ teaspoon Black pepper
  • ¼ rounded teaspoon ground sage

Meatloaf Glaze

  • ½ cup Ketchup
  • 1 tablespoon Worcestershire Sauce
  • 2 tablespoons brown sugar

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  • Gently crumble venison into small pieces and place into a large bowl. Sprinkle breadcrumbs on top.
  • In separate bowl combine remaining meatloaf ingredients and stir to combine. *
  • Pour seasoning and liquid mixture into bowl with venison. Gently mix to combine with fingers, being careful not to overwork the meat.
  • Combine all ingredients for the glaze and paint a couple tablespoons onto the bottom of a loaf pan. Place the meatloaf into the loaf pan and pour remaining glaze over the top of the meatloaf.
  • Place meatloaf in the oven for 75 minutes, or until the internal temperature reaches 160 degrees.
  • Let meatloaf rest for 5 minutes and serve.

Notes

*Mixing the liquids and seasonings in a separate bowl from the meat helps them incorporate into the meat more evenly with less mixing. Less mixing helps the meat stay tender.
