"A moist and flavorful comfort food. Very easy to make. A dish that would please anyone. My family never liked venison until now. I make my own venison burger (mixed with pork and smoked bacon) to die for. Makes the best meatloaf sandwiches or subs (trust me) for work or hunting (awesome cold). Works excellent with beef too. Your friends and family will beg for more. Good thing I like to hunt (the rest of my side of family doesn't)." — Dave Eilts

sharp Cheddar cheese

Loved this meatloaf recipe. I use a pound of ground venison and a pound of ground sausagee. Don't know how many oz. of morels, just lined the whole loaf with morels. This will be great without the morels and the cheese.
I thought this was a great recipe and very flavorful. Will definitely make again. I made exactly as directed except I used beef and I didn't have bacon so used prosciutto in its place. Very happy with how it came out.
Loved this! Didn't change a thing and it was absolutely delicious. Thanks for the recipe!
Amazing recipe! Venison, bacon, cheese, mushrooms and barbeque sauce...how could it not be wonderful!
I didn't have morel mushrooms, so I used baby bellas. I also used "butcher's cut" thick bacon on top. So very yummy...I guess my hubby will have to hunt more so I can make it again! (Although I'm willing to try it with beef as Aacker2005 suggested. Thanks so much for sharing it!
AWESOME RECIPE!!! I used beef instead of venison it turned out wonderful!
Wow! This recipe is not to disappoint. Everyone who doesn't like meatloaf has not tried this recipe. Thank you for sharing as this will be a new family recipe! Smokey, cheeses, perfect consistency, and BACON!!
I am always looking for more ways to use our ground venison. My whole picky family loved this recipe. Thanks Dave!
I absolutely LOVED this recipe and didn't change a thing about it. Having 3 deer hunters in the family gives me a lot of venison to be creative with. This is hands down one of their favorites. I like using straight venison (vs mixing it with pork) and wrapping the loaf with 7 or 8 bacon strips to help hold it together, then bake it on a broiler pan to catch all the drippings and keep even more of the fat away from the meat. Always have a warm bottle of barbecue sauce on the table for those who want some on every bite!
