The notsohorribleafterall meatloaf.

I've never been a huge fan of meatloaf, (the food, or the singer. ha!) but I was looking for recipes that I could use with all this deer meat that's in my freezer. By the way, if you would like some ground deer meat, PLEASE let me know because I'll never be able to use it all. Anyways, here's a great recipe for meatloaf that calls for three different kinds of meat. I replaced the ground turkey with our ground deer meat and it worked out well. This is also really kid friendly since John devoured it and I have a hard time getting him to eat meat.

Leslie's Kid Friendly Meatloaf

1/2 pound ground beef
1/2 pound ground pork
1/2 pound ground deer meat or turkey
1 cup of ketchup
1 tablespoon mustard
1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
1 tsp salt
1 tsp pepper
1 egg, beaten
6 or 7 pieces of white bread torn into tiny bites
1 tablespoon brown sugar mixed with a little extra ketchup

1. Preheat oven to 400. mix all of the ingredients except the brown sugar and ketchup mixture together in a big bowl.
2. Once everything is mixed up really well, put the meat mixture into a loaf pan.
3. Spread the brown sugar and ketchup mixture over the top of the meat mixture.

4. I recommend putting the loaf pan on top of a cookie sheet to reduce messy spills in the bottom of your oven.
5. Bake at 400 for about an hour and a half. Enjoy!

Do you have any dishes that your not 100% crazy about , but fix for your family anyway because they love it?

  1. I make these things called missile burgers. They taste JUST like white castles. Derek and Stratton love them and they give me the worst heartburn ever. I make it all the time and wind up eating something else after they go to bed. Haha.
