Homemade Venison Meatloaf

Hey there!

I have been promising this recipe for a few weeks now and I have finally had a chance to sit down and put it together! I’m sooo excited to be sharing it with you – it was a HUGE hit at my home with my husband & son!

If you have a family member that hunts deer (or any other wild game) then you’re probably always looking for new ways to cook it! I’ve been testing out different meatloaf recipes for the past year and this one was the perfect combination of spices & moisture! Not too fatty, not too moist & perfectly seasoned! Enjoy!

Homemade Italian Cowboy Meatloaf 


  • 2 lbs venison meat (defrosted)
  • 2 tbsp italian seasoning
  • 1 tbsp garlic
  • 1/2 cup BBQ
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 tbsp Worchestshire Sauce
  • 1 cup italian breadcrumbs
  • 1/4 cup parmesan cheese
  • 1/4 cup mozerella cheese

Combine all in a bowl and mix WELL! I use my hands 🙂 Then put into either a bread pan, or form a loaf in a shallow baking dish. Pour about 1/4 cup of BBQ on top of the loaf. Cover. Bake at 400 for about 60 minutes or until cooked thoroughly through!

You can make two and freeze the other half of the uncooked meatloaf for another night (I do this often to help with meal prep!) It will stay good for about 3 days in the refrigerator! I like to throw the cold leftovers on a sandwich with mustard (something my Dad said his Mom used to do) for lunch the next day!
