Step 1

In a large bowl, combine the ground beef, bread crumbs, egg, milk, ½ cup barbecue sauce, onion, salt, pepper and garlic powder. Mix together with your hands until thoroughly combined.

Cut top and bottom off onion, cut in half and peel off skin. Then separate the onion into "layers". Use the larger outside layers.

Stuff your ground beef mixture between two onion layers (essentially making an onion seal around a large meatball).

Wrap each "bomb" with 3 slices bacon and secure with toothpicks.

Bake in a dish with sides (to catch grease) at 425°F for approximately 40 minutes or until internal temperature 165°F.

Glaze the "bombs" with more barbecue sauce and bake an additional 5 minutes. Enjoy!
