This is a yummy and moist meatloaf with a bit of a kick. Use more or less spices to suit your taste, I like it as is!

This almost like my own recipe. I use sugar only in the topping. To cut down on the gamey taste(which I like BTW) make a double batch with one lb hamburger. Read More

I added about 1/4 cup of ground pork 1/4 cup of chili sauce and increased some of the spices. Also I rolled it flat sprinkled broccoli and layered ham and swiss cheese and rolled it up like a jelly roll. It was absolutely delicious. Read More

This was great!! I was a little concerned making meatloaf with venison... I thought it might not be moist enough. But it was! Also I was missing the thyme so I just made it without and it was still wonderful. Read More

This is the FIRST meatloaf that turned out perfect for me. I went by the recipe except for a few spices that I was out of. I doubled as we packaged our deer in 2 pounds. I love deer meat and I don't try to hide it's flavor. This is the best meat loaf (no matter what meat) I have ever had. I have never liked meatloaf until this recipe. Read More
