Reviews for Venison Meat Loaf
"This is the best meatloaf I have ever eaten!"
"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!"
"The whole family loved this!!"
"Family loved it!!"
"Great recipe!!!! You cannot tell it is venison! I had to alter a few things just because I didn't have all the ingredients and it still turnout out good! I used Ketchup instead of tomato sauce and apple cider vinegar instead of white vinegar! Still turned out awesome! Thank you!"

"I made this recipe without the brown sugar topping (didnt have any). I also added mushrooms. Meatloaf fell apart easily, but the taste was great! I only cooked it for 60 mins, and it was done. Husband said "Make this again!""
"not the consistency i wanted and needed some fat, our venison was too lean, may add some sausage or ground pork next time."
"Actually, I've been making this recipe since it appeared in 2009, In fact, I've tried other recipes over this time, but none compare to the wonderful taste of this recipe. Not one person EVER realized it was deer meat; the texture is remarkable! And, it is sooo easy to make beforehand.The only additions: add 2 tbsp of roasted pepper and grated carrot (for MORE sweetness)and some chunky applesauce for moistness. I use a large storage bag: add meat & everything in AM, & in PM thro it in pan and oven."
"Good meatloaf dish. I used a smaller bread pan (8 inches), and it turned out kinda mushy, but everyone liked it, and I drained off the extra juice that was on top to try and help it cook.Overall good meatloaf dish and I will make this again. Everyone liked it"
"I have made this a couple times now. Great recipe. I use cinamon toast crunch ceral in place of bread crumbs and 2 lbs of venison."
"I've made this meatloaf several times, and substiture crushed cracked pepper triscuits for the bread crumbs, adds some extra flavor."
"Used elk meat mixed with ground turkey. Very good."
"out of this world-fantastic recipeI substituted 1/2 egg beaters for the eggs; and added some chunky applesauce to mixture(for moistness)."
