Bacon Wrapped Bison Meat Balls

Prep Time: 15 minutes
Cook Time: 20 minutes
Yield: 8 meatballs

1 lb  ground bison (
8 slices bacon
1 Tbsp extra virgin olive oil
½ cup red onion, diced
1 egg
1 red bell pepper, diced
¼ cup almond flour
⅓ cup chopped cilantro
1 Tbsp smoked paprika
1 Tbsp thyme
1 pinches each of sea salt and black pepper

Preheat oven to 400F.

Set a nonstick skillet on medium heat and add olive oil and red onion. Sauté the onions until they are caramelized.
Place onions in a bowl and add in the rest of the ingredients. Mix and mash them up with a fork.

Form small meatballs with your hands to about the size of a ping pong ball.
Wrap each meatball in 1 strip of bacon and place it flap-side down on a baking sheet or rack.

Bake in the oven for 15 minutes. In the last 2 to 3 minutes, set the temperature in the oven to broil so the outside of the meatballs gets a little crispy.
