Bacon-Wrapped Buffalo Meatloaf

Rating: 4.31 stars
Most people who replace their ground beef with buffalo, in recipes like meatballs, burgers, and meatloaf, are usually disappointed. Ground buffalo is much leaner than ground beef, which is the biggest challenge. In case you're new, it's the fat that provides most of the flavor and moisture. Also, for whatever reason, pre-packaged buffalo is ground very fine, almost to a paste, which can lead to a rubbery meatloaf, unless you use a few tricks.

Simple Apricot-Glazed Meatloaf

Rating: 4.56 stars
I know everyone says their mum's meatloaf is the best and I am one of those who agree--my mum's recipe is the best! This has been one of my favorites since my childhood. While I love it served fresh and hot, a good next-day meatloaf sandwich is also a comfort food. I serve it with a nice arugula salad with cherry tomatoes, raisins, chopped walnuts, and vinaigrette dressing, or for a southern flare--garlic-smashed potatoes and freshly steamed snap green beans. Just yummy deliciousness and mum is always right!
