I caught my fiance eating this meat loaf cold, right out of the fridge! He encouraged me to send in the recipe. If you have a deer hunter in the family, be sure to give this a try.

Ingredients

  • 2 eggs
  • 2 cups soft bread crumbs
  • 1/2 cup chopped sweet onion
  • 1/4 cup packed brown sugar
  • 1/4 cup ketchup
  • 1 tablespoon cider vinegar
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
  • 1 pound ground venison
  • 1/2 pound bulk pork sausage
  • 4 bacon strips

Directions

  1. In a large bowl, combine the first eight ingredients. Crumble venison and sausage over mixture and mix well. Shape into a loaf in a greased 11x7-in. baking dish. Top with bacon strips.
  2. Bake, uncovered, at 400° for 40-45 minutes or until a thermometer reads 160°. Let stand for 5-10 minutes before slicing.
