How To Make Bacon Meatballs

Perfect for appetizers or dinner, these bacon meatballs are made with ground beef, onions, and milk-soaked bread. Serve with your fave sauce!

Preparation: 15 minutes
Cooking: 20 minutes
Total: 35 minutes

  1. In the bowl of a stand mixer, add the milk to the slices of bread.

  2. Melt the butter in a pan and add the minced yellow onions. Cook them on medium-low until translucent but not browned. Remove from heat and let cool.

  3. In the bowl with the milk-soaked bread, add the rest of the meatball ingredients including the cooked onions.

  4. Mix it on low until the bread is broken apart and the meat is combined with the ingredients (using the stand mixer and not hands helps keep the mixture cold and tender).

  5. Using a meatballer, ice cream scoop, or hands, scoop them into balls about the size of a ping pong ball.

  6. Freeze on a cookie sheet if possible.

  7. If cooking immediately, add to a baking dish and cook at 375 degrees F for 20 to 22 minutes.

  8. Remove the meatballs from the pan and serve with preferred sauce.
