Experimenting with Meatloaf: Bison Edition

This title just sounds gross to me. haha.  I want to keep track of recipes because I almost always personalize them (ADD MORE VEGGIES!) and forget what I did, so I may share from time to time. 

Bison Meatloaf

Meat mixture:
1lb lean ground bision
1 egg
1 small onion, diced
1/2 bell pepper, chopped
1 carrot, grated
2 Tbsp fresh chopped parsley
1 small can tomato paste
2 large mushrooms, chopped
2 pieces of bread chopped into little cubes
salt and pepper
splash of milk

1 small can tomato paste
1/4 cup brown sugar (didn't measure, just a guess)
3 Tbsp apple cider vinegar, or more to taste
2 Tbsp stoneground mustard
salt and pepper
a shake of garlic powder

Put all the meat mixture ingredients in a bowl and mix really well.  Add the milk last (I didn't need much).  Put the meat mixture in a bread loaf pan.
In a seperate bowl mix together the topping ingredients.  Spread on top of the uncooked meatloaf.  Bake at 350 degrees for 1 hour.

The flavor was wonderful!  I love all the chuncks of veggies in it.  The topping was delicious, a tad too sweet, but it was good!  I will definitely make this again! 


  1. That sounds delicious! I might just have to steal this!

  2. A huge plus is that the man of the house LOVED it too! I served it with steamed Yukon Gold potatoes with cheeese and parsley and steamed kale. :)

  3. I have never tried bison. Where did you find it?

  4. It was at Walmart on Danforth and Santa Fe. The packs are kind of small, you'll have to really look. :)

  5. I've been wanting to try bison meat in something other than a burger- this looks like a great recipe. I also add tons of veggies to my meatloaf. Not only does it make it feel healthier, it also adds moisture and the end result is not the dry, bland meatloaf of our parent's generation.

  6. Oh my.. I was reading that post and you know.. started thinking abt how much I hate cooking though this sounds absolutely delicious! Really.


  7. that looks delicious. my birthday is coming up, so... :)

  8. Sounds delicious! The fall weather arrived so I'm in the mood to do some comfort food cooking. Going to have to try this!
