Bacon Meatballs

We came across this recipe: http://paleomg.com/superbowl-snacks-bacon-meatballs-mango-honey-mustard-sauce/ when hunting for SuperBowl snack food ideas. Bacon meatballs? Uh, yes please! We didn’t bother making the dipping sauce that was posted with it (mango honey mustard, head over to the link if you want that), but loved ’em plain. Or with BBQ. Or with ketchup. Or with spicy brown mustard. (I’m Team Plain myself, but everyone liked the meatballs no matter what they put them in.)

Ingredients
For the balls:
  • 1.5lbs ground beef (or any other ground meat you see fit)
  • 6 slices of bacon, cut into 1 inch pieces (we use Hormel Natural Choice)
  • ½ yellow onion, diced
  • 1 egg, whisked
  • ¼ cup almond flour
  • 1 teaspoon cumin
  • ½ teaspoon chili powder (this is stage 2 for Feingold folks.. you could try just more cumin/black pepper for stage 1)
  • salt and pepper, to taste
Instructions
  1. Preheat your oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Put a large skillet over medium heat and add your diced bacon to it.
  3. Once bacon has rendered some fat in the pan, add your onions. Mix together and poke at it randomly to make sure the bacon and onions don’t burn. Once bacon is cook through, add the bacon and onions to a plate with a paper towel on it to cool and soak up some excess fat.
  4. Now add your ground beef to a large bowl, then add your cooled bacon and onions, along with egg, almond flour, and seasonings.
  5. Use your hands to mix all that goodness up thoroughly.
  6. Now roll into little bite size balls and place on a parchment paper lined cookie sheet.
  7. Bake for around 10-15 minutes, depending on the size of the meatballs.
