In most dishes we prefer lean ground venison, but there are a few things that really need some fat....burgers & meatloaf are two examples. The added fat helps the dish to bind together, and using bacon for that fat adds to the flavor!

3 lbs ground venison

12-16 oz package bacon (frozen), ground fine (or dice finely, or use food processor)

meduim onion, diced

medium carrot, grated finely

dehydrated diced bell peppers, 1/8 cup

garlic powder, 1/4 teaspoon

onion powder, 1/4 teaspoon

liquid smoke, 1/4 teaspoon

Worcestershire sauce, 1 Tablespoon

ketchup, 1/4 cup (plus some for the top at the end of baking)

water, 1/3 cup

One egg

quick oats (dry), 1/2 cup

Step 1: Grind the bacon

Working with the bacon while still frozen is much easier. Cut across the strips of bacon, then feed into food grinder or processor. (It's possible to dice the frozen bacon up with a knife, but you will have a less uniform mixture of bacon & venison.) I used the finest blade on my grinder.
