Easy Venison Meatloaf

Recipe By:MOTHERHEN1982 from allrecipes

“Serve with potatoes and seasonal vegetables.”



  • 2 pounds ground venison or elk
  • 1 (6 ounce) package dry stuffing mix (such as Stove Top(R))
  • 1 cup water
  • 1 onion, finely chopped
  • 1/4 cup barbeque sauce * mixed in
  • 2 large eggs, lightly beaten
  • 1/2 tsp salt and 1/2 tsp ground black pepper or to taste
  • 1/4 cup barbeque sauce * for top


  • Preheat oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C).
  • Mix venison, stuffing mix, water, onion, 1/4 cup barbeque sauce, eggs, salt, and black pepper together in a large bowl until fully incorporated. Shape venison mixture into a loaf and place in a 9×13-inch baking dish. Spread 1/4 cup barbeque sauce over the top of loaf. OR spread in a greased 9” x 5” loaf pan 
  • Bake in the preheated oven until no longer pink in the center, 45 min to 1 hour. An instant-read thermometer inserted into the center should read at least 160 degrees F (70 degrees C).

Burger Goulash


This is an easy, versatile meal. The name goulash tells you that it is very flexible, adding what ever you have or substituting for what you don’t have. The base ingredients are ground meat, onion, tomato of some kind and the spices. Canned tomatoes can be replaced by an equal amount of fresh tomatoes. No tomato sauce, add extra tomatoes. Left over vegetables, throw them in. No rice, pasta or zoodles, serve over mashed potatoes or drain a bit and serve on a bun like a Sloppy Jo. Continue reading “Burger Goulash”
