Keto Bison Meatballs


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


Step 1

Set oven to 400F.

Step 2

Set a nonstick skillet on medium heat and add olive oil and red onion. Saute the onions until they are carmelized.

Step 3

Add the onions to a bowl and add in the rest of the ingredients. Mix and mash them up with a fork.

Step 4

Form small meatballs with your hands, about 8 ping pong ball-sized meatballs.

Step 5

Wrap each meatball in 1 strip of bacon and place it flap-side down on a baking sheet/rack.

Step 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.
