Every now and then we feel like eating something a little different, bison is lean and has a good flavor. This is great to take for a party or potluck.
First I preheat the oven to 375. Then line a baking sheet with parchment paper or foil, strictly for the clean up, and then bake for about 30 minutes turning over halfway. If you want to you can take about 2 tablespoons of the fat drippings and put into the bison mixture before you cook it.
Once the bacon is in, I seasoned the bison with a red onion that I blended with some water to make a paste. I also added 2 tbsp butter, dried onions, allspice, cayenne, and ground coriander. A pack of onion soup mix can be a short cut here.
Then you want to measure out in a pan how much space the bread is going to take, and press this evenly into one flat piece. Bake for 15-20 minutes.
Meanwhile, start building. In another pan place the bread, cheese, seasoning, bacon. This part you can do ahead of time then just top with the meat.
If you are making this for a crowd, be sure to put the cheese only on the bottom, so guests can lift the top and put their toppings.
I covered with a tiny piece of foil so the top wouldn’t burn. This is only to melt the cheese. 15-20 minutes should do it. You can also paint with some butter and sprinkle on some sesame seeds.
