This is a simple and traditional meatloaf recipe utilizing your venison stores. We blend the Venison equally with high quality, grass fed, ground beef.
Heat oven to 325
In a food processor, combine 5 oz. croutons, 1 tsp black pepper, 1/2 tsp cayenne pepper, 1 tsp chili powder, and 1 tsp thyme. Pulse until the mixture is of a fine texture. Place this mixture into a large bowl.
Combine 1/4 onion, 1 carrot, 2 cloves garlic, 1/2 and red bell pepper in the food processor bowl. Pulse until the mixture is finely chopped, but not pureed.
Combine the vegetable mixture, 1 Ib ground beef, and 1 lb ground venison with the bread crumb mixture. Season the meat mixture with the kosher salt. Add 1 egg and 1 1/2 tsp salt and combine thoroughly, but avoid squeezing the meat.
Pack this mixture into a 10-inch loaf pan to mold the shape of the meatloaf. Onto a parchment paper-lined baking sheet, turn the meatloaf out of the pan onto the center of the tray. Put in oven for 45 mins.
Combine 1/2 cup ketchup, 1 tsp cumin, dashes Worcestershire sauce, dashes hot pepper sauce and honey. Brush the glaze onto the meatloaf after it has been cooking for about 20 minutes.
