I love it. I did add garlic powder and chili powder because i wanted a little more spice. Instead of dijon I used 1 tbs yellow mustard and 2 tbs. spicy brown mustard. And the apple cider vinegar is a great addition, I was pleasantly surprised at the turnout Also i did use half yellow and half red onion. This is my first and last elk meatloaf recipe. <3

This was the BEST meatloaf recipe i have ever eaten. I'm not much of a meatloaf fan but THIS recipe changed that! Additionally, I doubled the recipe because of the about of meat we had thawed out. I changed the topping sauce though because I do not like Dejon mustard. It turned out FANTASTIC, STUPENDOUS, AMAZING!! I will definitely be making this again. THANK YOU for posting it!!

Absolutely a great starter. I have added a few of my own items, but a great place to start.

Super good meatloaf! I used a 14 oz. can of tomato sauce and added some Worcestershire sauce. I was not so sure about the glaze for the top (I usually make a ketchup concoction) but it was great. This was my first time using ground elk and I'm glad I found this recipe:)

I followed the recipe to a tee- and it was loved by all. My husband was very worried when he saw how much apple cider vinegar I was using for the sauce on top but it turned out awesome. This was my first elk meat loaf and we will definetly use it again.

Very good recipe. Easy to make, and super tasty. The vinegar mixture on top adds a lot. I was skeptical reading it, but sure glad to have used it. Will certainly make again!
