  • The bacon will add some fat that would be missing in straight ground venison. This should work well to keep your meatloaf moist. Whatever filler you use ( bran, oatmeal, bread crumbs etc) will absorb the grease and retain the flavors. This should make awesome meatloaf or chili!
    My favorite way to cook venison steak is to soak it in milk overnight then country fry it until golden using crushed pork rinds instead of flour for the batter. Next layer the country-fried steaks in a baking dish & cover them with cream of mushroom soup. Bake at 350 until center of steaks reach 165. This is very rich but tastes awesome. Some mashed potatoes & a veggie and I'm in heaven...........

  • Yes, it should be delicious! In Recipe Hunters and Crock Pot Moms there are a number of Venison recipes.

  • Oh, I bet the bacon makes it amazing! I usually stick to "flavorful" meals when using venison burger. For meatloaf, I add chopped onions and put BBQ sauce on top. My family also, enjoys it in spaghetti as well. Add a TBS of crushed garlic (or garlic salt works too) and oragano while browning the meat. I also make stuffed bell peppers with BBQ sauce on top as well. If you'd liek the recipe let me knwo I'd be happy to share! Good luck!
