Bison Meatloaf and Maple Orange Sweet Potatoes

I am not a huge meat eater, particularly I don’t eat much beef but I do enjoy bison as a treat. Buffalo has an incredible flavor and is as simple as swapping out in any beef recipe. Bison steaks in Wyoming while traveling? Yum! Alas, it can be hard to find anything but ground Bison in regular grocery stores.Which I will add is often hidden next to the grass fed and or organic ground beef. Look hard and you might get rewarded…..

I served it with steamed broccoli and mashed male orange sweet potato/yams.

Bison Meatloaf


1/4 cup lowfat milk
1 egg
1 pound ground bison
1/4 cup dry Italian seasoned bread crumbs
1 Tbsp Worcestershire sauce

Heat your oven to 350ºF.
Meanwhile, with a fork beat the milk and egg in large bowl. Mix in bison and bread crumbs with your hand. Shape into 6 small loaves. Place on an ungreased cookie sheet (with raised edges) .

Drizzle the loaves with Worcestershire sauce and spread it on with your fingers.
Bake uncovered 35 to 45 minutes until no longer pink in centers of loaves and juice is clear. (If using thermometer to check, it should read at least 160ºF.)

Notes: It took 45 minutes for mine to cook and were perfectly done.

Maple Orange Sweet Potatoes/Yams

8 ounces tiny sweet potatoes/yams (I used a blend of 3 types from Trader Joes – they are palm size)

2 Tbsp real maple syrup

2 Tbsp orange juice

Scrub and wash the potatoes. Place in a microwave safe glass dish, tightly cover with microwave safe plastic wrap. Microwave for about 8 minutes or till done. The potatoes will be steamed.

Peel carefully (hot!). Mash with a fork and blend in the maple syrup and orange juice.
