Thumbs up Venison Meat Loaf

1st time to post on this forum, but fixing my 4th meatloaf with Venison processed by B&K processing in Bronte.

*2lbs of meat
*2 Eggs
*Sliced Jalepenos (1 half cup)
*Worchester....about half cup
*Salsa...just splash it on with diced onions, peppers
*Bacon Bits...half a cup
*BBQ sauce..2 cups
*"Sprinkle" garlic salt and pepper in bowl mix
*HAND mix it time and time again...then....
*Cover top with rotel diced tomatoes & green chilis

Cook at 425 for 60 minutes, drain at 50 minutes until you have a "little" crust on the edges. As our venison hamburger meat is pretty dry, you may have to add more Worchester, salsa, bbq if it's not juicy enough.

All my family and friends love it...good luck...it's VUNDERBLE....

Kumathebear can the BBQ sauce be substituted for a tomato paste?

yes, it can...but at least for us we like the BBQ flavor...it's subtle but gives it a little kick?

For a not-so-healthy kick we weaved a pound of bacon into a mat and wrapped that around the veniloaf before it goes in the pan/oven. The bacon tightens up as it bakes and locks the loaf together. Stupid good eating but I eat so much of it that we only do it once a year or so. I'll eat half the darn loaf!

God bless and happy hunting.
Richard.

Yep, cheap here too...I use the artificial as well...BUT...it softens like real bacon during cooking, you can't tell the difference.

Actually, believe it or not, the bacon bits serve as the binder. I also use them in regular beef meat loafs as well.

Not sure if I mentioned, drain excess about 10 minutes from the end of cooking.
