  • Ready In

  1. Preheat an oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Crumble the bread slice into crumbs and set aside. Grease an 8x8 inch baking dish.
  2. Thoroughly mix ground buffalo meat, onion, egg, ground mustard, tomatoes, salt, pepper, and bread crumbs in a large bowl.
  3. 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.
  4. 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...

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!

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!

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 to...

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 w...

This is the first time I've cooked bison. This is an easy recipe that calls for few ingredients and tastes great. Thanks for sharing.

If you are looking for a substitute for beef then try this recipe. Good comfort food.

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 add...

I have to say this is the best meatloaf I have ever tasted. My fiance' made this for me and I think the only thing she did differently was to use bay leaves in it somehow. (I'm no cook and not o...
