RECIPE Preparation
  1. In a small bowl, combine breadcrumbs and milk. Let mixture sit for about 10 minutes.
  2. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. Line a rimmed baking sheet with parchment paper.
  3. To a mixing bowl, add breadcrumb mixture, bison, parmesan cheese, oregano, paprika, red pepper flakes, salt, pepper, and the egg. Mix until evenly combined, being careful not to overmix.
  4. Divide meatball mixture into 1-ounce portions (a 1-ounce cookie scoop makes quick work of this). Press 1 cheese cube into each portion, wrap the meat around it and roll into a ball. Make sure each piece of cheese is completely encased in the meatball.
  5. Place meatballs on the prepared baking sheet and bake for 20 minutes. Let meatballs rest for a few minutes then top with BBQ sauce and serve.
