This is my husband's recipe for venison meatloaf. He combined several recipes to come up with the right combination of ingredients. It tastes like regular meatloaf.
1 lb. venison, ground
1 cup crushed crackers (I use one sleeve of Saltine)
1/2 cup milk or less (I now add ¼ cup)
1/4 cup Ketchup
1 Tbsp dried minced onion
2 Tbsp. brown sugar
2 Tbsp. mustard
2 Tbsp. white vinegar
2 tsp. seasoned salt
1/8 tsp. pepper
Mix all ingredients, shape into a loaf and bake at 350 degrees for one hour.
