These meatballs are made with bacon and minced beef and simmered in a whiskey bbq sauce.  Perfect to serve as an appetizer, in a sandwich or a  family dinner. Serve on a pile of spaghetti, with chips or mash & veggies.

 

Now before I go on, I really must say a big hello to all new followers. It’s lovely to see you all 🙂

 

Ingredients

 

6 rashers of bacon

1/2 an onion

1 lb minced beef

1/2 cup breadcrumbs

2 tablespoons chopped parsley

1 lrg egg

1 tsp chilli powder

1 tsp salt

1 Tbsp olive oil

1 1/2 cups Bbq sauce

1 cup water

3 Tbsp whiskey

 

Method

 

Place the uncooked bacon into a food processor and process for about 1 minute or until bacon is finely ground up. Add in the onion and process until onion is finely chopped and mixed in.

Spoon bacon and onion mixture into large bowl. Add minced beef, breadcrumbs, parsley, egg, chilli powder, and salt. Stir to combine.

Scoop out the meat mixture and roll into balls using your palms, should make about 24 1 inch meatballs.

Heat oil in large pan over medium heat. Place the meatballs into the pan and cook, turning every couple minutes to ensure all sides cook evenly. Cook for about 10-15 minutes until fully cooked.

Remove the meatballs and set aside. Remove the pan from the heat and pour out the excess fat.

Add the barbecue sauce, water and bourbon to the saucepan and return to heat. Stir to mix the sauce together. Add in the meatballs and allow them to simmer in the sauce for at least 10 minutes.

If you prefer a thicker sauce simply halve the sauce ingredients
