  • 1 lb Northstar Bison Ground Bison
  • 1 Egg
  • 3-4 sprigs Fresh Thyme
  • 1/2 cup Bread Crumbs
  • 1/4 cup grated parmesan cheese
  • 1/4 cup Milk
  • 3 cloves Garlic
  • 1/2 medium Onion
  • Pinch Salt
  • Pinch Pepper


Meat Balls: Start with chopping the Garlic & Onion very fine, then is a small pan sweat (cooking over medium/low heat) the vegetables until they become translucent and opaque in color. Once the vegetables are cooked through, set them aside to cool while you work on bringing together the rest of the ingredients. Soak the breadcrumbs in the milk until the crumb has absorbed all of the milk becoming saturated and plump. Preheat your oven to 375 degrees F. In a large mixing bowl, add the ground bison, the whole eggs, cheese and thyme. Add the cooled onion and garlic, and the now moist breadcrumb to the bowl with the bison. Now work all the ingredients together until they become completely combined. Line a cookie sheet in aluminum foil, then spray the surface with a non-stick cooking spray. Using a spoon (or miniature Ice-cream scoop), roll the farce(mixture of meat) into perfect little half-dollar sized spheres and align them on the cookie sheet fairly close, leaving only enough space between them as so they are not touching. Bake for 15 minutes.

 Sauce Ingredients:

  • 1 c. Wild Mushrooms (pick a blend of your favorite mushrooms)
  • 1 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 Tbsp. Olive Oil
  • 8 oz. Heavy Cream
  • Salt
  • Pepper 


For the Creamed Mushrooms: Finely chop the mushrooms and garlic. Pre-heat a saute pan. Once the skillet is hot, add the oil, garlic and mushrooms quickly browning them. Season with a hint of salt, then add the cream and cook until the cream reduces to a consistency. Season the sauce to your personal taste. Sink the Meat Balls into your creamed Mushrooms and garnish with Fresh Thyme.

Closing Thoughts:

A beautiful side dish to compliment these meatballs is roasted or grilled asparagus. They are most flavorful when picked fresh from your garden (or your neighbors).
