Everything is better with bacon. A mantra to live by.
Short entry, and will keep you guessing a little bit on the recipe. Mostly because meatballs are a very personal thing. As with many recipes, people take their meatball creations to the grave. But here is the one that I modified and love. (Sorry about the photo quality).
Dice and fry your bacon.
Drain grease, let cool, pat dry several times, and crunch into bits.
The basic ingredients for mine are ground beef (85%), ricotta cheese, parmesan cheese, panko bread crumbs, eggs, flat leaf parsley, fresh garlic, red pepper flakes, and salt.
Mix thoroughly but not enough to take the fat out of the meat. Roll into little golf ball sizes packages of love.
I think you’ll be very pleased with the addition of the bacon. I promise…
