Venison Meatloaf: A Favorite Comfort Food!

For me, meatloaf  is a comfort food. I love sitting down to a meal of meatloaf, mashed potatoes and gravy, biscuits and some fresh vegetable. This combination is really appreciated after along, cold day outside.
Meatloaf  is particularly gratifying if the meat in it has been harvested by someone in your family! It is a great dish to use up some of the the tougher pieces from a game animal, such as the meat from the neck and lower legs.
Meatloaf can also be is a great wilderness survival food. It can be cooked outside, in a cast iron Dutch oven over coals. Because the length of time the meatloaf needs to be baked is not critical, that means the  meal doesn't require constant supervision.
