New Berlin, Wis. –( Steven Rinella, host of Sportsman Channel’s MeatEater, takes a unique approach to preparing common breakfast foods by replacing traditional meats of beef and pork with wild game meat.

From black bear bacon to corn beef hash made from Kentucky bull elk, Rinella showcases delectable breakfast dishes, sure to please even the most traditional of meat eaters. MeatEater airs exclusively on Sportsman Channel Thursday, August 28 at 8 p.m. ET/PT.

You can’t bring home the bacon without harvesting a pig, right? Not so fast. Rinella proves that any classic breakfast meat, including bacon, can be replaced with game meat.  Join Rinella in his quest to bring wild game to the most important meal of the day.

“I like to try to look at chefs who I admire to see what they are doing. Then I ask myself, could I do something similar using game meat? Sometimes it’s easy, sometimes it’s hard, but it’s always adventurous,” admits Rinella.

MeatEater airs exclusively on Sportsman Channel, Thursdays at 8 p.m. ET/PT.
