Keto Recipe

Ingredients for 8 meatballs:

  • 1 lb 85% ground bison (I used Simple Truth)
  • 8 slices bacon (I used Simple Truth, uncured, nitrate-free bacon)
  • 1 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil
  • 1/2 cup red onion, diced
  • 1 egg
  • 1 red bell pepper, diced
  • 1/4 cup almond flour
  • 1/3 cup chopped cilantro
  • Seasonings:
    • 1 tablespoon smoked paprika
    • 1 tablespoon thyme
    • pinches of sea salt & pepper

 

Steps:

  1. Set oven to 400F.
  2. Set a nonstick skillet on medium heat and add olive oil and red onion.  Saute the onions until they are carmelized.
  3. Add the onions to a bowl and add in the rest of the ingredients.  Mix and mash them up with a fork.
  4. Form small meatballs with your hands, about 8 ping pong ball-sized meatballs.
  5. Wrap each meatball in 1 strip of bacon and place it flap-side down on a baking sheet/rack.
  6. Bake in the oven for 15 minutes at 400F.  For the last 2-3 minutes of baking, set the temperature in the oven to broil so the outside gets a little crispy.
