  • PrepTime: 15 Mins
  • CookTime: 35 Mins
  • TotalTime: 55 Mins

Ingredient

  1. 1 pound ground venison
  2. 1 egg
  3. 1 (4 ounce) packet saltine crackers, finely crushed
  4. ¼ cup barbecue sauce
  5. ½ yellow onion, chopped
  6. ½ teaspoon dried sage
  7. ½ teaspoon steak seasoning
  8. 2 tablespoons brown sugar
  9. 2 tablespoons Worcestershire sauce
  10. 3 slices bacon
  11. ¾ cup barbecue sauce
  12. 2 tablespoons brown sugar
  13. 1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce

Instruction

  1. Preheat an oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
  2. Mix the venison, egg, cracker crumbs, 1/4 cup barbecue sauce, onion, sage, steak seasoning, 2 tablespoons brown sugar, and 2 tablespoons Worcestershire sauce in a mixing bowl with your hands until evenly combined. Pack into a 3x7-inch loaf pan, and lay the bacon strips over top.
  3. Bake in the preheated oven until no longer pink in the center and the bacon is crispy, about 35 minutes. An instant-read thermometer inserted into the center should read at least 160 degrees F (70 degrees C). Meanwhile, stir 3/4 cup barbecue sauce, 2 tablespoons brown sugar, and 1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce in a sauce pan over medium heat. Simmer 5 minutes, whisking constantly. Pour the sauce over the cooked meatloaf, and let rest 5 minutes before serving.
