Ingredients

Loaf

  • 1 pounds ground elk (The Friesen’s suggest beef, ground turkey or ground venison and sometimes mix half ground beef with Venison, Axis or Nilgai)
  • 1 cup Ritz crackers crushed
  • 1 egg beaten
  • 1 cup milk
  • 1/2 cup catsup
  • 1/3 cup onion finely chopped
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder

Glaze

  • 3/4 cup catsup
  • 1/4 cup brown sugar
  • 1/4 cup apricot preserves
  • 1 tablespoon Worcestershire

Instructions

Loaf

  • Preheat the oven to 350 F. Coat a 5×9 loaf pan with cooking spray and set aside. In a large bowl combine all ingredients. Pour the mixture into the prepared pan and spread evenly. Place the pan on a rimmed baking sheet and bake in the preheated oven for 1 1/2 hours.

Glaze

  • In a small bowl, combine glaze ingredients. Mix well. Spread half of the mixture evenly over the meatloaf halfway through baking. Reserve the remainder of the sauce for dipping/topping. Let meatloaf sit for 15 minutes before slicing and serving.
