You know it’s bad when you stare at your computer with no funny interesting thoughts to type about.  It’s been a week since my last post, sorry folks the days and the week got away from me, and I still have nothing good to share.  Too much going on in my life and my mom was in town visiting and helping us out with the little monkeys since they were out of school.  Summer is here for them and it so makes me wish I was out for the summer too.  Remember those days?!!  Ahhhh, yes those days when you were younger and got to run around and do fun summer things!  I couldn’t wait for the last day of school because summers always meant staying up late, going to summer camp, 4th of July, going to the beach, and basically all things fun….I miss those days.  I wish they had summer camp from adult life too.  Where you don’t have to go to work and avoid all things involving being a grown-up.  Wouldn’t that be fun!?  I dropped the girls off at their first day of summer camp this morning and I looked at their activities for the day and I turned to the camp counselor and asked if I could pass for a 4 year old so I could stay.  She laughed, I think she thought I was kidding but I so wasn’t!!!  I planned to post these yummy meatballs last week but like I said the week got away from me.  So here I am sharing them with you today.  These were adapted from one of my very favorite Paleo yummy blogs, Nom Nom Paleo.  Love her!  Love her recipes!  And in my honest opinion I think she is superwoman!  She is a mommy, works, and finds time to blog every day about all the things she eats in her Paleo eating day.  Yes, she pretty much rocks.  She calls these the WODS.  I call them….well meatballs.  I used 100% grass-fed bison in these little balls of delight but you can use whatever you have and prefer.  I’m sure ground chicken would be yummy too.  I just happen to have bison, but I’ve also tried these with grass-fed beef and they were yummy too.  I made some slight changes to the recipe based off what was in my cabinet and frig at the time.  These are pretty yummy and pretty easy to make and even more easy to pop in your mouth for a quick protein boost.  Trust me, I did this several mornings after a killer WOD at the gym because they also have my very favorite thing….sweet potatoes!  So I got my protein and carb all in one.  Easy right?  Especially after coming home from the gym and having a short window of time.  Love that when that happens.

If you are looking for a great resource for 100% grass-fed bison you must try the bison from Wild Idea Buffalo.

Bison Meatballs

1 pound ground bison (grass-fed)

1 to 2 green onion, finely diced

1/2 sweet potato, finely diced

1 clove garlic, minced

1 egg

1/2 teaspoon salt

1/4 teaspoon fresh ground black pepper

1/2 teaspoon ground paprika

1 tablespoon fresh parsley, minced

1/4 cup tomato paste


Preheat oven to 375 degrees.  Oil a baking sheet with coconut oil, or you can use aluminum foil (nonstick) or parchment paper to avoid a mess.

Place all the ingredients in a large bowl.  Using a fork, or your hands, mix until everything is evenly combine.  Using a scoop or a large spoon, scoop evenly distibuted meatballs onto prepared baking sheet.  I got about 12 to 15 meatballs.  Then put baking sheet in preheated oven and bake for about 15 to 20 minutes or until meatballs are cooked through.

Serve warm….yummy!  I served over the recent broccoli recipe in the above photo.

  3. I’m so thankful that I found your website! We had these meatballs tonight for dinner, and they were amazing! I’ve been a vegetarian for a year, and just last week I decided that my body might be asking for meat. THIS recipe was exactly the transition that I needed into my new paleo diet. So sensible, healthy, and packed with protein. Thank you so much!!!

  4. Sorry if this is a duplicate message…computer issues. I made these meatballs tonight and we loved them! I’ve been a vegetarian for the past year, and after hearing my body ask for meat I decided to try paleo just last week. Your meatballs were the perfect transition to meat meals. So healthy, filled with whole foods, and packed with protein. LOVED them! Thanks for the recipe!

    My hubby and I loved these!! Great recipe! We normally use bison meat instead of beef, and this compliments the meat so, so well! Love that it’s full of such good, healthy stuff and its so quick! :)

    OMG amazing. I LOVE that this is finally a meatball that works with no flour! I actually did equal parts pork and ground beef (that’s what was defrosted), subbed butternut squash dice for sweet potato (already had one cut up), and added some chopped spinach. Oh! And smoked paprika! Love that stuff! After I baked them I threw them in a giant pot of homemade marinara sauce and served it up over zuzketti! :) LOVE my spiralizer…kitchen gadget dork here. These meatballs will definitely be making a routine appearance since we just picked up our half grass-fed cow order…too much ground meat to know what to with. Thanks for all your hard work-you are so appreciated!

    I know I’m a weirdo, but I’m not crazy about sweet potatoes. Would this work if I omitted those? (I might just have to try and report back… or maybe learn to love sweet potatoes!)

    Hi Elizabeth,

    You could dice up carrots or maybe butternut squash and try that instead of the sweet potatoes.

    I want to try this bison meatball recipe. Great idea to serve over the broccoli recipe – looks and sounds delicious.

  12. Amanda says:

    So this is recipe #3 of yours that I’ve tried (chicken meatball/zoodles, and broccoli side dish)and all 3 have been AMAZING :) lovelovelove it all! I love that everything incorporates a ton of veggies!

  13. Kristine says:

    One technical question: are the diced sweet potatoes cooked or raw? I’m torn on what you mean. Raw would likely mush up and not look so distinct in the final product, but raw would have to be cut in very small dice to cook inside the meatball. Please let me know – I have some bison in the fridge and want to try these tonight!

    Made these for my anniversary dinner. I didn’t have sweet potatoes so I threw in some oats. Hubby’s a barbecue sauce fiend so I added apple flavored bbq sauce. Fantastically yummy! Thanks!
