Bacon Wrapped Meatballs

We appreciate greatness but do we recognize the importance of smallness? Let’s explore the possibilities through these delicious bacon wrapped meatballs!

As I currently have some time, I was surfing on the web last week. Trying to get new, interesting tips, inspiring recipes that I have never used before, to delight my family with. Searching for a while but could not discover lots of interesting stuff. Just before I thought to give up on it, I came across this delightful and simple dessert simply by chance on Suncakemom. The dessert looked so scrumptious on its photo, that called for fast action.

It absolutely was not so difficult to imagine just how it is created, how it tastes and just how much boyfriend might want it. Actually, it is quite simple to please the guy when it comes to cakes. Yes, I am a lucky one. Or maybe he is.Anyhow, I visited the page and simply followed the detailed instuctions which were coupled with wonderful shots of the method. It just makes life much easier. I can suppose it is a bit of a hassle to shoot snap shots in the middle of baking in the kitchen as you will often have sticky hands so that i genuinely appreciate the time and effort she put in for making this blogpost and recipe conveniently implemented.

With that said I’m inspired to present my own recipes in a similar way. Many thanks the thought.

I was fine tuning the original formula to make it for the taste of my loved ones. I must say it was an awesome success. They enjoyed the taste, the thickness and loved having a treat like this during a busy workweek. They ultimately asked for lots more, a lot more. Hence the next occasion I’m not going to make the same mistake. I’m gonna multiply the quantity .

Place all the ingredients, except the cheese and the bacon in a big enough bowl. If we have 15 extra minutes then caramelize the onions before mixing them with the meat. It’s not crucial but it is worth to do.

Mix the ingredients together.

Dice the cheese.

Slice the bacon, pancetta or guanciale if they are not sliced already. We’ll need very thin slices that won’t be possible without a sharp knife or a slicer. Also don’t forget to remove the skin.

Apply a slight layer of oil on the hands before starting to make the balls.

There is no rule about the size of meatballs but we can work well with plum sized ones. Pick up a plum sized chunk of meat mixture then stick the cube of cheese in the middle.

Close it then form a ball. Repeat until all the meat is used up. We may run out of cheese along the way but meatballs without cheese also taste delicious so don’t worry about that too much.

Wrap the balls with the sliced up bacon, panetta or guanciale. It can be wrapped up with a single slice leaving two sides of the meatballs exposed or using 2 slices of bacon completely wrapping the balls up. Both way it will be delicious.

Place the wrapped up meatballs into a high walled baking sheet or anything that can bear the heat in the oven.

Roast them in a 390°F / 200°C preferably preheated oven until golden brown which mostly happen after about 50 minutes depending on the oven. If it’s not preheated, it will probably take a bit longer but no harm will be done.
