What is Hoss eating in Bonanza?

The middle Cartwright brother had an appetite as big as the Ponderosa!

 CBS Television Distribution

Dan Blocker was the perfect actor to play Hoss Cartwright. His imposing figure gave the middle Cartwright brother a strong presence while his jovial personality meant Bonanza could pull off scenes with heart and humor.

It’s no surprise that the gentle giant of the Ponderosa had an immense appetite, and his ability to clear his plate (well, many plates) factored into a few classic episodes.

Here are ten memorable Hoss meals from Bonanza. Can you guess what he’s eating in each image?

I figured Hoss would have eaten rabbit before -- especially out on the trail, camping. Heck, I ate fried rabbit a couple of times as a kid on Grandpa's ranch in Texas.
