MA’s meatloaf needs to move over, it’s time for the wild game version of Venison meatloaf!!
For a new way to impress your friends and family with the buck you shot, this is it. What makes this meatloaf different? One word…. BACON!! Yes, everyone’s favorite super hero in the food world is bacon. Bacon is used in this recipe to replace the loaf pan.
Here is what you’re going to need…. besides venison in your freezer of course.
2 lbs. Ground Venison
1 lb. Pork Sausage
1 Cup Panko (Japanese bread crumb)
1/3 cup milk
1 cup yellow onion, small dice
1 tablespoon garlic, minced
1 tablespoon clarified butter
2 large eggs
2 teaspoons Worcestershire sauce
2 teaspoons Italian herb seasoning
1 teaspoon celery seed
1 tsp salt
½ tsp black pepper
1 tsp dry rub seasoning
12 strips bacon (1 lb.)
TIP: Do not over mix the ingriedients into the meat. Less is more when mixing…the meat can get tough if its over stirred. Use your hands to massage it together gently and then form it into a loaf shape.
Recipe yields 2 each, 1 ½ lbs. meatloafs; Each meatloaf serves approx. 4 people
Enjoy seeing the smiles on everyone’s face when this hits the dinner table. Serve with your favorite sides. Ketchup optional, because this just isn’t your average meatloaf.
