Made this tonight exactly as stated. I admit I was a bit skeptical about the amount of water and stuffing that it called for. It turned out much better than I expected. My oldest son and husband loved it. My youngest wouldn't touch it after a bite and I thought it had a nice flavor. The only thing I'd change is swap out 1 lb of the ground venison burger for ground venison sausage (something I do for all my meatloaves normally to add more flavor) and cut down on a little bit of the stuffing (the seasoning in it was a bit much with the barbecue.) The barbecue was much more predominant than what I usually taste in my regular meatloaf with ketchup. Very nice change!
This was PERFECT for me. Not a lot on-hand at the moment but I definitely have all of this I tell you. It was easy delicious and definitely NOT too onion-y. We used Sweet Baby Ray's for a BBQ and ohhh OHHH. Perfect. Just perfection. Lean and wonderful. They couldn't tell it was venison! Loved this definitely will use again.
I made some slight changes. Venison was 15% pork added. Used 2lbs. The BBQ sauce used was Sweet Baby Rays Honey. I added 3 tbs of Lea & Perrin Worcestershire to it. Used a small to medium white onion and a stick of celery chopped. Stuffing used was Stove Top Savory Herb. Replaced water with 3/4c of milk. For topping rather than more BBQ sauce I used my blend of Heinz ketchup brown sugar French's spicy brown mustard and Ghost Sauce (http://soninlaw.net) It's good. I'll make it like this again. Literally just finished eating and want more... Just no more room.;-)
I made this along with another venison meatloaf recipe during the bow rut hunt. It was my first time ever making venison meatloaf, and I was a bit skeptical. But we had a freezer full of deer meat so I thought I'd give it a try. The recipe was delicious and so easy. I used chicken broth instead of water. The hunters voted this the best recipe, and I will definitely be making this again!
Made a few changes and both hubby and kids loved it! Thanks for sharing. My changes: 7 oz Parmesan bread crumbs instead of stuffing 1 pkg onion mushroom soup mix by Lipton instead of chopped onion 3 TBS Worcestershire sauce BBQ sauce was Smokey Mo's I added Heinze ketchup for added flavor on top
Won't be making this again. Waaaay too much onion even with 2 1/2 lbs. of meat. My stupid fault for putting it all in but I didn't realize it til it was too late. I don't think meatloaf is supposed to be crunchy. Could barely taste the BBQ sauce. Even added extra to accommodate the extra meat. Basically flavorless.
I will definitely make this again! The only thing I did differently is to use one lb of sausage and one lb of venison. The flavor was divine. So savory and perfect for comfort food. My 1 and 3 year old both ate it up. It really makes a huge serving too!
