I was surprised at how good this was. A healthy version of a favorite American classic.
P3: I served it for lunch with pureed cauliflower (1 C cauliflower before cooking & pureeing is only 25 calories! TIP: Use frozen cauliflower for fast & easy prep.).
3.5 oz lean ground bison or beef
1/2 t milk
1 melba toast, ground to powder
2 cloves minced garlic
1/2 t onion powder
1/2 t spicy mustard
1/4 t allspice
1/8 t sage
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Mix all ingredients in a Ziploc bag or bowl.
Pat into an ungreased glass or glazed dish (like pottery).
Cover with foil and bake for 25-30 min.
Remove foil & drain fat/liquid.
Add 2 T BBQ sauce (1 serving - below) on top and bake for another 5 minutes uncovered.
Serve hot with extra BBQ sauce if desired.
