Amazing Venison Meatloaf

4.4
(5)

This is my own original recipe (I'm a hunter's wife) and an all-time family favorite! A super moist and flavorful meatloaf with a 'kick' using venison and pork sausage. It would also probably be good as a leftover, but none of it has ever made it to the fridge so I don't know. This is exceptional when the meatloaf is formed into patties and grilled outside instead of baked in the oven.
