This was very good! I had a lot of fun making this dish and it went well with my other dishes!! My family thoroughly enjoyed it too, which makes it that much better. Plus, there is bacon! haha
I tried this recipe idea, but tweaked it in a few ways: 1) I used diced onion rather than onion powder; 2) I omitted the salt and pepper; 3) I added a couple tbsps of tomato sauce; 4) I baked the large meatballs on a rack over my baking pan for 30 minutes, then turned them over and continued baking to evenly cook the bacon. They were delicious and we will be having them again soon ;)
Amazing meatball recipe. I used diced onion instead of powder. I also used more bacon as each meatball required (in my opinion) an entire slice.
I often make giant meatballs, but didn't think to wrap them in bacon. Genius! I use a muffin tin to hold the meatballs in shape.
The meatballs were a big hit! These are practically a main course by themselves, though, very large and filling. Next time I might cut the size down a bit.
Yes - I made these meatballs for a birthday party - 18 of them and everyone loved them so much they are asking me to bring them into the office so they can purchase them for $3.00 each. One of the fellows said "I could eat a dozen of those myself" . . . so this might be a good sign that they enjoyed them so much they are willing to pay $$'s for them. A new business sideline . . . while working at the university. I'm not sure that $3.00 will cover the cost plus labor.
This was fantastic. We placed a stick in the meatballs and poured bbq sauce over them. The meatballs were very flavorful. The bacon was not very crispy even though I baked in a convection oven. I recommend increasing the temperature to 425 for the last 5 - 10 minutes to crisp up the bacon.
