BBQ Bacon Wrapped Onion Bombs
Have you seen these floating around the internet? Ken attached onto them and was dying to make them. Well, I see why? These BBQ Bacon Wrapped Onion Bombs look fabulous and trust me are even better to eat!!
What is not to love, a big huge meatball stuffed with cheese encased in onion and then wrapped in bacon and slathered with BBQ sauce. I think that is any man’s dream meal, hey wait, mine too!! They are perfect for game day!!
The idea is in an area between cray cray and genius. You know that teetering, exciting threshold that gives you all the wonderfully crazy yet divine dishes!!
Well this is one of them!! These are easy to make, really they are!! Come let me tell you how!!
Although these are said to be BBQ they are made in the oven. They are brushed though with lots of BBQ sauce.
This is a perfect fall and winter meal when you are still craving the flavors of the BBQ but don’t want to venture outside in the nasty weather.
The outside gets lovely and crispy while the inside meatballs stays juicy from the onion, bacon and BBQ sauce.
I am sorry I didn’t cut one of these open for you but I was rushing to get one in “my belly”!!
Man, are these delectable. Ken made a tray of them so we popped some into the freezer and they froze like a dream.
A tip for making these is don’t do your meatballs all ahead of time but custom make them to the size of your onion.
You want to use the larger layers of the onion and make meatballs accordingly, as the onion sizes get smaller so will your meatball.
Then use another large onion to keep making more. The inner part of the onion can be used for another recipe, just pop it into the fridge wrapped.
