Bacon Cheeseburger Meatballs

I know you think I've gone bacon crazy, you might be right, but on the other hand homemade bacon is just so good! I made Whiskey Bacon Jam, then I waded in to the briny and smokey world of Homemade Bacon and now I've got straight off the deep end with Bacon Cheeseburger Meatballs. But you all these are possibly the most perfect two bite burger in the world. I can see whipping a double batch of these bad boys for a hearty party snack. They also make fun eating for kids especially when served with ketchup, mustard or barbecue sauce for dipping, frilly toothpick optional.

Bacon Cheeseburger Meatballs--oven 400˚

2 large dill pickles
1/4 small onion
1/4 pound good bacon-the best you can afford
1 pound 93% lean ground beef
salt and pepper
1 cup grated cheddar cheese

put the pickles and onion in the bowl of a food processor
process until finely chopped
chop the bacon and add to the bowl
process until the bacon is chopped well and mixed with the pickle and onions
pour the bacon mix into a large mixing bowl
add the beef and mix well with your hands
form into 30 1 inch meatballs
sprinkle with salt and pepper
bake in a 400˚ oven for 25-30 minutes
remove from the oven
sprinkle the cheese evenly on the meatballs
return meatballs to the oven and bake for 5 more minutes

giddy up


 As you can see they were feared at first


 but after that first bite they got a BIG thumbs up.



Mothering tip of the day--BAN I say BAN your kids from wearing white shirts in the summer, look at that filth!


Peace and Love--
