COOKING INSTRUCTIONS

Preheat your oven/smoker to 350 degrees.

Combine all your ingredients using your hand to blend all ingredients (except the ketchup).

Add the Avocado oil to your loaf pan and spread it with your hands. 

Place mixture into your loaf pan, press it down to make it in the form of a loaf. 

Covered it with foil and bake it for 80 minutes. Then carefully remove it from the oven and pour off any excess water.

Cover meatloaf with ketchup and bake it for another 20 minutes. Carefully remove it from the oven and let it sit for 5 minutes.

While you wait for your bison to cook:

Heat a skillet, add Avocado oil, green beans, and all your seasonings. Stir and cook them over medium heat for 7 – 10 minutes or until they reached the level of tenderness you like. 

Remove it from the skillet and let it stand for 5 minutes before serving.

*If you are using only 1 lb. of 100% grass-fed bison ground. You will need to adjust the quantities for the ingredients listed below and baking time (Bake it only for 60 minutes instead of 80 minutes). The remaining ingredients and cooking steps will remain the same:

  • ½ cup of quick gluten-free oatmeal (or regular oatmeal if you are not Gluten Intolerant)

½ teaspoon of salt (optional)
