You do not have to be a hunter to enjoy venison. This recipe is proof! Several members of my family do not hunt yet they all enjoy a good meatloaf. In fact, this recipe is my father Larry’s favorite.

Ingredients for and final product of venison mini meatloaves

Keep in mind recipes are just suggestions. This will work with your favorite meatloaf recipe. I would recommend you use part venison and part ground chuck. The ground chuck has more fat in it and keeps the venison moist. I shape these into mini-meatloaves because they cook in 30 minutes, quick enough for a workday supper.


1 cup quick cooking oatmeal
1 1/3 cup milk
1 package dry onion soup mix
1 egg, beaten
1/4 cup ketchup
1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
1 1/2 lbs. ground venison
1 lb. ground chuck

  1. Mix oatmeal with milk and let stand for 5 minutes.
  2. Mix in all other ingredients.
  3. Shape into 10 to 12 mini meatloaves.
  4. Place on foil that has been sprayed with cooking spray.
  5. Cook on grill over medium heat for about 30 minutes or until done (internal temperature of 165 degrees).
