- 1.25 lb. ground bison
- ½ c. celery, finely chopped
- 1 egg
- 4 slices bacon, fat trimmed and cut into small pieces
- ¾ c. almond meal
- 1 tbsp. fresh sage, chopped
- ½ tbsp. fresh thyme, chopped
- ½ tsp. black pepper
- ½ tsp. Pink Himalayan Salt
- Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
- Cover an oven-safe pan or baking dish with tinfoil and lightly brush with coconut
- or olive oil.
- In a large bowl place all ingredients except for the bacon; set aside.
- In a small pan, lightly fry the bacon on low. You want the bacon to be nearly done, but not overly done, since it will still be baked. (Note: you do not need to fry the bacon in oil. Real bacon produces its own cooking grease.)
- Add the bacon to complete mixture and mix by hand once bacon has cooled a little.
- Form into mini meatballs. Place in your baking dish, and bake for about 30 minutes.
- Once they have cooled a little, poke them with an appetizer pick and serve.
