  1. You can make these with all your own fresh ground meat like I did. I used ground pork shoulder, top sirloin, and bison tenderloin
  2. Combine all of your ingredients in a large mixing bowl
  3. Form into 1-2 inch rounds
  4. You can refrigerate those rounds for up to 1 week to use and/or freeze for up to 3 months
  5. For eating immediately, heat skillet over medium-low heat
  6. Saute until brown and cooked through, ~10-15 minutes
  7. Serve with any other food you can imagine, breakfast, lunch or dinner like I did
  8. Enjoy
