Easy Bison Meatballs using ingredients you already have!
Every once in awhile, I just get a hankering for spaghetti and meatballs, really kind of randomly. I've tried making bison meatballs a few times before, and they've always been just OK. This time, however... I found a keeper! These meatballs were awesome and went so well with my spaghetti dinner and just hit the spot on a cold night.
This meatball recipe is pretty simple, and only uses a few basic ingredients which you probably already have.
To make the meat mixture, I mixed together my ground bison with some uncooked oatmeal, ketchup, mustard, egg, onion and spices. Usually I tend to skimp on the spices, fearful that I'm going to go too overboard. This time however, I was working with a broken pepper shaker, and WAY too much pepper fell out. I tried to scrape out as much as I could... but these ended up being the best meatballs I've ever made... probably because I finally used enough seasoning!
One of my biggest turnoffs to making meatballs is always sticking my hands into such a weird mixture! But, once I get over the hump, it's never so bad.
Mix the ingredients together by hand until they are well mixed.
Form into small balls and place into a baking dish. If you'd prefer to make this recipe into meatloaf, then simply form into a loaf instead.
Then all that's left to do is bake!
They come out looking pretty darn good, I think. (They were delicious too! Just hit the spot!)
I placed them in a dish and covered them with my sauce.
From there, they were ready to serve over spaghetti!
