My mother, who claims she can detect venison in any recipe, didn't have a clue it was in this tender meat loaf until we told her after dinner. She raved about this flavorful main dish the entire time she was eating it! -Liz Gilchrist, Bolton, Ontario

MY REVIEW

"Venison is a staple in our diet, and in 34 years of marriage with 5 children, I've made meatloaf more times than I can count. My husband said this is the best meatloaf he's ever tasted, and I agree. I modified to use what was on hand...seasoned panko bread crumbs, cut the salt in half, Sweet Baby Ray's in place of brown sugar, mustard & vinegar. Added a 4 oz can of mushrooms, drained. Delicious!"

"Didn't have tomatoe sauce so I used ketchup. Didn't put onion in it, and to replace the brown sugar vinegar mustard topping I used barbecue sauce. And it's the bomb digity!"
