“Bison Meatloaf"

Prep Time: 10 minutes

Cook Time: 50 minutes

Total Time: 60 minutes

Yield: Serves 6-8

Also try: ground wild game, turkey, beef, veal and pork

Ingredients

  • 1 carrot
  • 1 large onion
  • 1 stalk celery
  • 2 cups button mushrooms (one standard package)
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 2 ½ pounds ground bison
  • 1 egg, beaten

  • ½ cup bread crumbs
  • 1/3 cup tomato puree
  • ½ cup parsley
  • ½ cup basil

  • 1 teaspoon pepper

Instructions

  1. Blend the carrot, onion, celery and mushrooms in a food processor until fine but not pureed.
  2. Heat the oil and sauté the mixture until softened, about 10 minutes. Sprinkle with salt along the way to help release the juices.

“Squirrel Brunswick Stew with Acorns”

_DSC7271v632

Young squirrel is good simply quartered and fried. Old squirrel is good stewed. When in doubt, it is safest to braise or stew a squirrel. Sometimes, for flavor and for whimsy, I like to add acorns to this recipe. Native Americans used to eat acorns, usually by grinding them and then boiling them. They are …

“Fig Jam & Other Silliness”

DSC_0342

I’ve decided that I might be insane. For example, I drove up to Dallas last night after attending a very important pumpkin carving party where I ate ribs and chicken legs like a cave woman. I couldn’t tell how fast I was going because for some reason the speedometer on my car changed to kilometers …

“Pickled Turnips”

_DSC0775

I’m pickling a lot these days. That seems to be the way it goes with summer gardening. You hoe and weed and till and sow and water and worry and then it all comes pouring in at once, faster than you can eat it. When I have this problem, I pickle. Folks, get ready for …

“Beurre Blanc”

Butter sauce, that is, in English speak. Butter is such a magical thing, don’t you think? I call it udder nectar. Sometimes. Only with people who know me well, like you for example. But I usually don’t call it that at a first encounter. You see, we get so caught up in recipes, but sometimes …

“Gluten Free Strawberry Cupcakes & A Giveaway”

I got a wonderful gift in the mail yesterday that compelled me to host a giveaway because I want one of you to have it too. One of my favorite food bloggers, Elana Amsterdam, of Elana’s Pantry has a new book coming out this week called “Gluten-Free Cupcakes,” and it looks heavenly. I have talked about Elana’s food philosophy in the past when her last book hit the shelves, but I want to say it again…

“Duck Confit”

_DSC0325v610

I spent all day yesterday recipe testing. My freezer had gotten unruly and I had declared that nothing else was allowed in it so that all of the game meat I had collected since September could have a proper home until I could test it all for the “Girl Hunter” book. That has been the …

“How to Make Applesauce”

DSC2774-copy

As you may recall, I went apple picking with an old college friend not too long ago. It was an attempt to re-live those cool, crisp New England days. But seeing as it was 104 degrees, and we were sweaty, I don’t think it was really a walk down memory lane. But we got apples. …

“Sweet and Tangy Salad Dressing: The Feast”

DSC_05912

Welcome to the final installment of my three part dinner series… After a full day of hunting on the ranch, and a full day of cooking by Paul, we finally got to eat the fruits of our labor.   The ranch has a very beautiful interior, with lovely wood paneling and a cozy lodge atmosphere. …
