Venison Meatloaf


This is a great recipe to use if you have a hunter in the family and if not, you can pick up ground venison at the University of Minnesota Meat Sale.  I love serving meatloaf with my Granny’s Tomato Jam and this recipe goes perfect with it.  Click here to watch the January 17, 2014 segment of Twin Cities Live when I made this recipe!
