Winner!! Finally a new way to serve ground venison that is not an Italian meat sauce or iin chili (although we love them). I used the last of my ketchup in the meat loaf, so served with bar-b-que on the side. It was fabulous! I will be making this again.

My family loves this meatloaf. It has such a wonderful taste. Those who don't like venison will never know that it is not beef.
