KC on Food | Gluten-Free Bison Meatballs

Get ready! These are hands down my most requested meal prep recipe! Every time I go live on IG these are the one thing I get a bunch of message on after so I decided to share them with you! I use a mix of veggies as a binder and cut cost but using minced portobello mushrooms to double the volume of the “meat”. I will explain below! I hope you love them! BONUS: You can make these into incredible burger patties too!

So let’s get started! You need to grab a food processor if you have one! I suggest investing in one, even if it is a hand pulse manual one. I have a Breville that has several attachments but I also have a hand held one from target for quick jobs that was around $15! Either works!

INGREDIENTS:

  • 1 package of Bison (you can substitute beef, turkey, chicken or lamb)

  • 1 package of sun dried tomatoes in olive oil

  • 1 package of portobello mushrooms

  • 2 cups of spinach

  • 1/4 cup of parmesan cheese grated (optional)

  • 1 tablespoon white truffle oil (sub EVOO if needed)

  • Italian seasoning (look for labels with low sodium and natural ingredients)

  • Garlic Salt to taste

  • Pepper to taste

TIP!  Use mushrooms to double the volume of your meat for half the price! It also cuts calories!

Mince Spinach, Tomatoes, Mushrooms and Parmesan Cheese in the food processor to make a binder for the meatballs to stick together nicely. In a large bowl miix in the meat, minced veggies and seasonings in a mixing bowl and get after it! Roll out as many 1 1/2 inch balls as you can get and place them on a lined baking sheet. Place in the oven on 375 degrees for approx. 20-25 minutes (I use convection so they cook faster so please check them, ovens can vary and you should always adjust cook times to your oven at home). Check on them around 15 minutes to ensure they are cooking evenly.

Remove to cool and you are done! THAT’S IT!

TIP:  Using wax paper helps keep the meatballs from sticking so clean up is a snap!

I like to use these amaze-balls (yes, I am totally using that term) on top of zucchini noodles tossed in pesto (recipe coming soon!). You can also put them on a traditional pasta and a nice tomato sauce! Or just save them for meal prep for the week! Anyway you use them they will be a hit! CHEERS!

TIP:  Make it a low-cal meal with Zoodles or freeze the leftovers for later!

I hope you love the flavor as much as I do! I alter this recipe throughout the year using different seasons and veggies to change it up! The combos are endless and it is SIMPLE to make delicious food at home! Let me know if you try this in the comments below and please share this recipe and the YouTube video! ~ KC ~
