Meat Loaf

1 lb ground venison
1 lb ground lamb
1 lb ground pork
or any variety of beef, venison, lamb, pork or goat you may have.

3 Tablespoons balsamic vinegar
2 Tablespoons mustard
1 large yellow onion (caramelized)
4-5 Garlic cloves, crushed or minced
3 eggs
3/4 Teaspoon salt
1 Teaspoon mustard seed
1/4 Teaspoon Mexican chili powder

1/2 Cup ketchup
Sauerkraut – optional

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Crush garlic and set aside at least 10 minutes.  Caramelize onions in olive oil and cool a little bit.
Mix all ingredients, except ketchup, together and put half of mixture into each bread pan pressing the mixture down into each pan.
Spread ketchup on top of each loaf.
Bake for about 1.5 hours. Serve with sauerkraut.

You can cut ingredients in half to make one loaf but I like to make 2 loaves at a time to put one in the freezer for another day.
