  • Thoroughly mix ground buffalo meat, onion, egg, ground mustard, tomatoes, salt, pepper, and bread crumbs in a large bowl.

  • Form the meat mixture into a loaf shape about 8x4 inches and place into the middle of the baking dish. Apply ketchup to the top and sides of the meatloaf.

  • Bake in preheated oven until meat is no longer pink and ketchup forms a glaze over the meatloaf, 1 1/2 hours. Let stand 10 minutes before serving.

This is my recipe, so let me add this to what I originally posted. Ground bison emits a "juice" that isn't familiar to me with other ground meats. I don't know what it is. I DO know that I skim it away from the meatloaf and once that's done, it doesn't appear again... not even during reheating. For those of you who've added to the recipe, I suspect the additions altered the chemistry. If the results were tasty, excellent! If not, you might want to try this recipe as posted, and alter it later, once you know what the original tastes like. The quick summary is the ground bison behaves differently when baked than ground beef. I should have mentioned this in my original posting of the recipe. Sorry 'bout that. Read More

This was good. Didn't have the canned tomatoes so we just skipped that part. It could have used a little more flavor so I'll experiment next time but I will use this recipe again! Read More

Very good I made them into mini-meatloaves using a muffin tin. I'm impatient and don't like to have to wait the 1 1/2 hours to eat! Read More

I ended up making this with half ground buffalo and half ground beef (didn't pay attention when taking it out of the freezer). I added some fresh garlic and like others diced up the canned tomatoes a little more finely. The only other change I made was to mix some prepared English mustard with the ketchup. Although it crumbled when I cut into it this was a very tasty meatloaf. Nice and moist too. Thanks! Read More

Because Im "eating healthy" i modified this a bit and it still came out great. I used whole wheat breadcrumbs I (have also used a whole wheat pita all ground up before as well) and eggbeaters. I used 1/3 cup crushed tomatoes because I dont like tomato chunks and only 1/4 onion. Also I didnt add any salt. This was great and it stuck to my plan. Read More

Great recipe. I used all antelope instead of buffalo. I doubled the recipe but only used 1 can of diced tomatoes. I didn't have mustard powder so I used a tablespoon of regular mustard. It was good... the only thing I would do different is chop the the onions and tomatoes smaller. Read More

WOOOOWWWW This is one of the best meatloafs! Its simple so you dont think it will be good but its amazing. Doesnt taste like buffalo at all. My husband HATES bison/buffalo and I didnt tell him it was buffalo until AFTER he had devoured the entire pan includng the planned leftovers. He was amazed. I will be making this many many times to come. Might make a good burger patty too albeit crumbly. Oh and you do have to drain off the grease but its no big deal. I topped mine with Ketchup mixed with worcestershire and brown sugar. Fantastic. Read More

So moist! We love the addition of the canned tomatoes but do take the time to chop them smaller- some of the pieces were quite large! I used whole grain crackers in place of the bread and added some flax and wheat germ. Read More
