"Cat" Meat Loaf for Michael's Birthday

Cat Meatloaf

Michael was always threatening to make our beloved cats (Stanley and Stella) into meatloaf. For his birthday, Kristin made him some cat-shaped meatloafs out of bison meat and they were delicious.

You could call this a “LOL loaf”

Kristin’s LOL Loaf Recipe

  • 2 pounds lean ground beef (or bison)
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/4 tsp ground black pepper
  • 2 eggs, lightly beaten
  • 1/2 cup soft bread crumbs
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 1 tsp Worchestershire sauce
  • 1/4 cup finely chopped onion
  • 1/4 tsp dried leaf thyme, crumbled (or fresh)
  • 1/4 tsp dried leaf rosemary, crumbled (or fresh)
  • 1/3 cup white wine
  • 3 slices bacon


Cut bacon into inch-long pieces and brown slowly over low heat. Blot excess bacon grease using paper towels on a plate. Mix ground beef (or bison), bacon, salt, pepper, eggs, bread crumbs, milk, Worchestershire, wine, onion, thyme, and rosemary. Pack into lightly greased loaf pan. Bake at 350º F for 1 hour. Garnish with fresh rosemary for tail, whiskers, and onion slices for the eyes with cloves in the center. Chop a fresh carrot into triangle-shaped ear pieces.

Serves 6-8 people as part of a dinner.

Note, people sensitive to cat as a meatloaf jokes should probably stay away from this recipe. Also note: no cats were harmed in the making of this dish.
