Cranberry-Chili Bison Meatballs



  • lb ground bison

  • 1/2 cup bread crumbs

  • 1/4 cup milk

  • 1/2 teaspoon salt

  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper

  • 1 egg

Meatball Sauce:

  • 1-8 oz jar Heinz chili sauce

  • 1-8 oz can cranberry sauce



  1. Heat oven to 400°F and line a pan with foil

  2. Spray with cooking spray

  3. In large bowl, mix meatball ingredients.

  4. Shape mixture into 1 1/2-inch meatballs.

  5. Place 1 inch apart in pan.

  6. Bake uncovered 18 to 22 minutes or until temperature reaches 160°F and no longer pink in center.

Meatball Sauce:

  1. When meatballs are done, place meatballs in slowcooker

  2. Add chili and cranberry sauce to slow cooker and stir

  3. Set the slow cooker on low for 4 hours (the meatballs are already cooked, so this is safe to eat but infuses the taste!)

You can add the meatballs to a toasted hot dog bun and top with spring mix and mozzarella if desired! For meal prep, we recommend putting the hot dog bun in a separate container and heating up vegetables and meatballs separately.
