Bison Meatloaf

Every so often I splurge on ground bison for meatloaf. Ground bison is just over $10 a pound. In fact any meat is very expensive nowadays, hence all the soups, vegetables, beans and rice we usually eat. Gary had a tooth procedure so I thought ground meat would be good for him to eat. I haven't eaten beef in over 20 years but I occasionally eat bison meat.

I make meatloaf like my mother did surrounded with potatoes and carrots and topped with a can of chopped tomatoes. I mix the meat with eggs, spices and this time I used flax meal to hold it all together. I also sprinkled a little brown sugar over the top before baking. That was a nice flavor enhancer.

Bake at 375 F for one hour, let sit for 10 minutes then slice and serve. I used two pounds of ground bison and it makes meals for all week long or can be frozen for later. I once had a couple over for dinner and when they learned the meatloaf was bison they quit eating. It was real hard for me to throw away their uneaten portions since bison is just over $10 a pound. Why someone would eat beef but not bison is beyond me. Thanks for reading and for all your comments.


  1. Bison is a meat we don't get here. And yes, meat is expensive. My meals are MUCH cheaper than my partner's.

    1. Hi Sue, thanks, we only get the ground bison and to think that bison once covered all the grasslands of our country here.

    1. Hi Joanne, thanks, some folks can't get over their squeamishness on eating certain animals and yet they'll eat others, I can't understand that mentality.


I love suggestions, questions, critiques, thanks for your comment
