    Bison is such a great meat for lean meals – awesome flavor, too. This definitely looks 1000 times better than the meatloaf of my youth!

    I see bison at our grocery store but I have yet to buy it. I think it might be time. And bacon wrapped…YES! Yum!

    I have so many childhood memories of really great meatloaf. It truly is versatile and goes great with so many sides (mashed potatoes!) Love the bison bacon idea (I’ve never tried it!)

    1. Thanks Lora, Meatloaf is definitely a recipe every cook should know how to make because it is so veratile. Hope you give the bison a try.

    I remember always having meatloaf as a kid. It was the best meal of the week! I’ve never cooked bison before. I think I need to try it asap. Plus that bacon on top is yumm-o!

  5. Dear Amy, the first time I tried biscon I overcooked it because I was not familiar with it. Now it seems to be all the rage and after seeing this beautiful meatloaf, I am tempted to try it again! xo, Catherine

    1. Thanks Catherine. Bison does dry out quickly so adding the bacon on top helps to keep everything nice and moist. Hope you give it a try!

    We were just talking last night about meatloaf getting a bad rap. Anything you add bacon to is going to make it better. Gotta try this!

    Meatloaf does have a bad wrap, but when made with bison and bacon, how can it be bad? I love, love, love cooking with Bison. Pinned to try soon!

    Amy you have no idea how excited I am to try this out- Not having access to bison in Australia, I’m stoked! I’ve never tried Worcestershire sauce AND hot sauce together- I love both so I know it will be good!
