Wild Comfort Food: Venison Meatloaf.

We ground our venison last Fall. But we never got around to cutting it with ground pork like we normally do. Since we also haven’t bought a sausage stuffer that’s worth a damn, I’m not sure we’ll ever get around to it. This is sounding a lot less like a problem, though. Plain ground venison is pretty versatile.

I came home from work around 7, and had this thawed pound of deer meat. I ground up a packet I’d separated of really fatty bacon ends, and then mixed the venison, an egg, some Ritz crackers, and some seasoning in my (new!) Kitchenaid. Then I formed it into a round and baked it in a foil-lined pan.

It came out extremely well. I don’t know what that kid in A Christmas Story was complaining about- meatloaf is delicious. My mom would be proud.
