Need a meatloaf recipe

I would prefer one that calls for venison because that's what I'll be using, but if you don't have a venison recipe, plmk if you have a tried and true recipe that does not call for breadcrumbs or cracker crumbs. I'm really craving meatloaf, so thanks.

I've used almond meal before instead of breadcrumbs, mama, as a low-carb version.

Re: Need a meatloaf recipe

I'm not really looking for low carb. From what I understand, the bread crumbs is to soak up fat, which venison has much less fat than beef, so bread crumbs/ cracker crumbs aren't necessary when making meatloaf from venison. I could be wrong, though. . . PLMK if I am.

You're probably right! I've never used venison. I would say the breadcrumbs probably also help give the meatloaf shape, but if the meat is very lean, it may become too dry... maybe panko breadcrumbs wouldn't absorb as much.

Re: Need a meatloaf recipe

I usually make venison meatloaf, but I do beef from time to time too. I've used food processed oats, granola, even kellogg's cereal in place of crumbs. It always turns out great!

Would you share your basic recipe?

Re: Need a meatloaf recipe

I make mine with ground turkey and still use breadcrumbs.

1 Tbs butter
2 Cups chopped onion
1 8 oz package of sliced mushrooms
3 garlic cloves chopped
3/4 cup panko
1/4 cup fat-free, less-sodium chicken broth
3 Tbs chopped fresh flat leaf parsley
1 Tbs low sodium soy sauce
1 Tbs hot chili sauce (I usually just sub this for extra soy and Worcestershire sauce)
1 Tbs Worcestershire sauce
1/2 tbs ground pepper
1 1/2 lbs of ground turkey
1 large egg
cooking spray
1/2 cup ketchup
1 Tbs brown sugar
1/8 tsp dry mustard
1/8 tsp ground nutmeg

Preheat oven to 350
melt butter in skillet and add onion, mushrooms, and garlic. Cook 8 minutes, stirring occasionally. Remove from heat and cool for 5 min.
Combine mushroom mixture, panko, and next 8 ingredients (through egg). Stir well to combine. Shape turkey mixture into 9x5 rectangle pan coated with cooking spray. Combine ketchup, brown sugar, mustard, and nutmeg and spread over meatloaf. Bake at 350 for 40 minutes or until thermometer registers 160 degrees. Let stand for 10 min before serving.

This recipe is amazing! We love it and make it often.

Re: Need a meatloaf recipe

I use the one out of the Better Homes and Garden recipe book...the old one from my mom's kitchen, since mine doesn't have the recipe!!

Off the top of my head...

Meat 3 lbs
tomato sauce/paste (whatever I have in the pantry)
bread crumbs (but I use the kellogg's cornflake crumbs)
Italian spice blend
chopped onions
minced garlic
1 -2 eggs

I pretty much just wing it on the amounts of the ingredients I use!! I use just enough breadcrumbs to give it the right consistency....not too mushy, not too dry. I also use this recipe for my meatballs, and it takes just as good with turkey.

Re: Need a meatloaf recipe

Yum I love meatloaf. No real recipe as I just kind of toss and go.
Meatloaf
Ground meat of choice approx 3 pounds (I use ground chuck but it would work with venison, turkey, chicken, or pork)
Oatmeal (the long cook kind) approx 1/2-3/4 cup
Salsa approx 3/4-1 cup
1-2 large eggs
salt and pepper
depending on how I feel I might add Worcestershire sauce, maybe some Soy sauce, a squeeze of ketchup, or BBQ sauce. Sometimes we add grated cheese usually cheddar or whatever blend we might have in the fridge.

I mix up the eggs, oatmeal, salsa and any other seasonings I might be using that day and then add the ground meat (don't handle the ground meat to much or you will compact it). I bake it at 350 degrees for approx 1 hour. I bake it in a rectangular casserole dish sprayed with Pam for easy cleanup.

Must have glaze/sauce on top.
1 cup ketchup
1/2 cup brown sugar
1/4 cup yellow mustard
Mix all the above together and spread over meatloaf during the last 10 minutes of baking.


And if you have never tried the Pioneer Woman's BBQ Meatballs they are awesome. You could use venison for those too. I double her sauce recipe as we like it saucy and the sauce is yummy on mashed potatoes.

Re: Need a meatloaf recipe

OH I'll post mine in the morning but it's basically 1lb venison, 1c. chopped apples (or applesause) 1c. oatmeal, and 1/2 chopped onions, and seasoning... IT"S SO GOOD, the apple helps remove some of that game taste and it's so moist without being fatty. LOVE IT!
