  1. Mix bison, mustard, oregano, cumin, onion powder, paprika, sage, and celery salt together in a bowl. Form meatballs approximately 1 1/2-inch diameter in size.
  2. Heat olive oil in a non-stick skillet over medium-low heat, swirling to cover bottom of the skillet. Add meatballs and cook undisturbed, about 4 minutes. Continue to cook, turning meatballs until browned evenly on all sides, about 6 minutes more. An instant-read thermometer inserted into the center should read at least 160 degrees F (70 degrees C).


  • Cook's Notes:
  • These meatballs are best when they are cooked at a medium-low temperature, uncovered. Do not sear.

Very nice mild flavor. I baked mine at 325 - cook 10 minutes - turn - cook 10 minutes more. Super easy and very tender meatballs.

This is a very easy and delicious recipe. I don't use bison often, so I really needed to know which seasonings would be best to bring out the flavor. I also really appreciated the tip on using...
