Who doesn’t love a good meatball? Add bacon…wow! Found this recipe in (Cuisine for less). It’s a great recipe to make in bulk, the meatballs freeze well. I made extra’s they never made it to the freezer.
6 strips bacon, diced
1/2 cup diced onion
3 cloves minced garlic
1 1/2 pound ground beef chuck
1/2 cup dry bread crumbs
3 Tbsp minced fresh parsley
1 tsp paprika
1 tsp sea salt
1 tsp black pepper
2 eggs beaten
Preheat the oven 400 F. Coat a broiler pan with oil.
Brown diced bacon in a fry pan until starting to crisp.
Remove and drain on paper towel.
Pour off all but 1 Tbsp bacon fat. Saute onion in same skillet over medium heat for 3 minutes, add garlic cook 1 minute.
Combine ground meat, bacon with onion and garlic in a large bowl.
Add bread crumbs
Add fresh minced parsley.
Add paprika, salt and pepper.
In a small bowl beat 2 eggs. My cooking partner Katie loves to help her Mamal with anything and everything.
Add eggs to beef mixture.
Mix. Form into 1 1/2 inch meat balls. Lay on broiler pan.
Bake meatballs until fully cooked about 12 – 14 minutes.
You can make a double batch and always have meatballs on hand. Just freeze on a baking sheet then transfer into a container or plastic bag. Freeze until you need them. Nice to have on hand for an easy meal.
