These meatballs are filled with cheddar and wrapped in bacon. We like to dip them in my homemade thousand island to really give them that cheeseburger vibe.

These meatballs are filled with cheddar and wrapped in bacon. We like to dip them in my homemade thousand island to really give them that cheeseburger vibe.

Yield 9 bacon bombs
Prep Time 15 minutes
Cook Time 35 minutes
Total Time 50 minutes

Ingredients

  • 1 pound lean ground beef
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 teaspoon onion powder
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • ½ teaspoon cracked pepper
  • 4 ounces cheddar cheese
  • 9 bacon slices
  • Thousand island, for dipping

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
  2. Add the beef, garlic, onion powder, salt, and pepper to a mixing bowl and stir well to combine. 
  3. Portion the mixture into 9 evenly sized balls. 
  4. Cut the cheese into 9 small cubes.
  5. Flatten each ball and place a cube of cheese in the center. Form the meat around the cheese, sealing it in all the way around.
  6. Wrap each ball of meat with a slice of bacon and place on a parchment lined baking sheet.
  7. Bake for 35-40 minutes or until the beef is cooked through and the bacon is crisp.

Notes

Some cheese will melt out of the beef, no matter how well you seal it. Use parchment to keep clean up easy.
