I donít add any fat to my ground venison, and my meatloaf tends to be crumbly because of how lean it is. I think I might have solved the problem. I made meatloaf today and layered the top with four strips of bacon before baking it. It holds together well and the bacon grease adds great flavor to the meatloaf. It turned out good enough that I thought I would share it here. Forget duct tape; Bacon can fix anything.
