Cheese Stuffed Bacon Wrapped Meatballs

These Cheese Stuffed Bacon Wrapped Meatballs are a deluxe style meatball filled with gooey cheese and wrapped in bacon perfect as a finger food appetizer.

The recipe suggests using Boerenkaas cheese or Gouda, but you may substitute it for what is on hand. Other good options may include smoked cheddar or a gooey mozzarella.

Although the serving suggestion is as a simple finger food feel free to be creative and add to a tomato pasta sauce to be served on spaghetti. They can even be added to casseroles, curries, and salads.

Ingredients

3 pounds ground beef

1 pound sausage

3 eggs

2 tablespoons Trilby's Jittery Jerk Rub or favorite jerk seasoning

1/3 cup breadcrumbs

2 tablespoons dried parsley flakes

1/2 pound Boerenkaas cheese or Gouda

2 pounds (1kg) sliced bacon

Alaskan Unami Sauce or your favorite BBQ sauce

Equipment

smoker

toothpicks

Recipe Directions

  1. Combine the ground beef, sausage, eggs, rub, breadcrumbs, and parsley in a large bowl, then mix until well combined. If time allows cover and chill overnight for the flavors to infuse.

  2. Slice the cheese into 1/2 inch or 1cm cubes.

  3. Take about a tablespoon of the ground beef mixture then place the cheese in it then cover with another tablespoon of the ground beef mixture. Roll into a smooth meatball. Repeat until all the ground beef is gone.

  4. Cut the bacon in half then wrap around the meatball. If necessary secure with a toothpick.

  5. Place in a smoker preheated to 250 degrees F (120 degrees C). Cook for 45 minutes or until cooked to 165 degrees F (75 degrees C).

  6. If not already added, spear each meatball with a toothpick, then drizzle with BBQ sauce to serve.
