Bakin’ with Bacon and the King!

 

Greetings from the Baconian Castle kitchen – ready for a great recipe?

I, your King, will favor you with yet another amazingly delicious “ball of yummy” – you’ll see why I’m calling it that when you see what we’re making today.    Kind of fun – and absolutely delicious.   A great football season snack, or honestly a great and FUN dinner item or “company’s coming” snack.    Oh baby are these good!

BBQ Bacon-Wrapped Onion Bombs

MEATBALLS

  • 2 lbs. lean ground beef
  • 1 cup bread crumbs
  • 1 egg, beaten
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 1/2 cup BBQ sauce
  • 1 tsp. salt
  • 1/2 tsp. onion powder
  • 1/2 tsp. thyme
  • 1/2 tsp. freshly ground pepper
  • 1/2 tsp. garlic powder
  • 1/2 ” cube of cheddar cheese per meatball

ONION BOMBS

  • 5-6 large yellow onions
  • 1 lb. bacon
  • Additional BBQ sauce

INSTRUCTIONS

  1. Mix the the meatball ingredients together, omitting the cheese, in a large bowl with your hands until well combined. Preheat the oven to 425F. Line a sided cookie sheet with foil and set aside.
  2. Slice the top and bottom off of an onion and peel off the skin. Cut the onion in half and now peel back the layers. Use the two sides of the onion and see how large you need to make your meatball. Stuff the meatball with the 1/2″ cheese cube and roll into a ball. Insert your meatball in the onion halves and make sure it fits nicely, not too small or too large.
  3. Wrap each of the onion bombs with 2-3 slices of bacon depending on the size of the bomb and secure with toothpicks. Bake on the prepared cookie sheet for 40 min. or until a thermometer reads 165F. Brush liberally with BBQ sauce and bake another 5-10 min.

Not such a toughie to make is it!    Not only that, they are beyond delicious.    If you like meatballs with BBQ sauce or anything even remotely LIKE that, you’ll love these.    Don’t get too hung up in the “onion assembly” part of putting these together – as long as the meatball has onion “around” it – even if the sides don’t match, SO WHAT – you’re gonna wrap it up in bacon anyway.  The onion is a great wrap for the meatball……….and the bacon holds it all together then slather it up in BBQ sauce (save some for a bowl on the side for dipping) and you’re in HEAVEN in no time.

Football snack right?   That’s what we think anyway………….but you probably could eat these for breakfast and love them too.

I don’t have to think – I know which way I’m goin’  !!  How about you ??

King of Baconia……and I hereby issue an order that all in the Kingdom try a new baconized recipe soon – expand your horizons – enjoy your bacon!!

    That sounds very tasty! I do love bacon and am getting withdrawal symptoms so am thinking that if I use English back bacon instead of streaky it won’t have as much fat so should be all right for me. That’s my thinking anyway.

  6. Mom likes this idea – except for the onions, which is an important part of it, since it’s in the title! Oh well. She likely will only THINK about making them and never actually do it anyway…. #myluck

      I betcha you can do this recipe WITHOUT the onions PERIOD. Make the meatballs and insert the cheese then go ahead and wrap in bacon PERIOD. The onions just add a little taste – they don’t hold the meatballs together any more than the bacon does!! YAY!

      Love, Teddy

    Teddy, Mom thinks these sounds scrumptious but knows they would spell heartburn for her with the onion and bar-b-que sauce. She’d sure try one; though! XOCK, angel Lily Olivia, Mauricio, Misty May, Giulietta, angel Fiona, Astrid, Lisbeth, Calista Jo, Cooper Murphy and Sawyer

      Agreed here with my Mom and the heartburn/BBQ but she managed to sample THREE small ones without any after effects – and know what? THEY WERE SOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO good!

      Hugs, Teddy
