Let's be honest, meatloaf is a great comfort meal but it usually takes about an hour to bake in the oven.

When you bake these bison meatloaf muffins you'll be enjoying them in half the time. 

If you have followed me here, you know by now that I love bison, bison burgersbison steaks and more. 

Here's a little fact for you:

"Bison has less fat and calories and more protein and iron than a comparable portion of beef, chicken, or even some fish." 

Now you may wonder, where can I find bison meat?

I have found bison at various stores to include kroger, publix, whole foods and etc. but the best place I have found ground bison at a good price is costco. They sell Great Range Bison in a 2.5 lb unit and it is usually priced lower than grass-fed beef. 

This recipe is super simple to make, takes a total of 30 minutes and I promise that it will please the whole crowd.
