Normally I’m totally healthy, bending the rules a bit this week because these meatballs”rock” are super easy and are wonderful when reheated as well! It’s back-to-school dinnertime at it’s best.
1 lb. ground hamburger (95% lean)
1 to 2 cups of BBQ Sauce (I use Head Country)
1/2 to 3/4 pkg. of Stove Top Sage Dressing (dry – do not prepare)
1 pkg. Farmland Maple Glazed Bacon (MUST use maple flavored!)
Salt and Pepper
Pam cooking spray
Heat oven to 350 degrees. Coat bottom of 13 x 9″ glass pan with Pam cooking spray. In a large mixing bowl, add raw ground beef, BBQ Sauce (as much as you like to really coat it) and the Stove Top stuffing (I usually smash it up a bit before I open the bag). Mix well (I use my hands and really “knead” it around). Make 1 1/2″ balls of mixture and then wrap a whole raw piece of bacon around both ways and set in pan (no need to use toothpicks if you place the bacon with the end down underneath the meatball). Give a squirt on the top of each meatball of additional BBQ sauce. Then cook at 350 degrees for approximately one hour. Use tongs and move meatballs to a serving dish (to remove grease from bottom of dish.)
