Ingredients

  • 1 1/2

    lbs lean ground beef

  • 2

    slices white bread, torn into small pieces (see NOTES)

  • 2

    tbs water

  • 2

    tbs finely chopped onion

  • 1

    tsp garlic powder

  • 1/2

    tsp salt

  • 1/4

    tsp pepper

  • 1

    egg

  • 16

    slices bacon (in UK it's streaky bacon--don't use thick cut)

  • 8 - 1/2-inch cubes sharp cheddar cheese -OR- mozzarella

Directions

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Line a baking sheet with aluminum foil (for easy clean up) and place a rack in the pan (I use a rack like you use to cool cookies) In a large bowl, mix the ground beef, torn bread, water, onion, garlic powder, salt, pepper and egg. Blend well. Divide meat into 8 equal portions. Form meatball around a cube of cheese. Wrap with one slice of bacon, then turn the meatball 90 degrees and wrap in another slice of bacon. Place meatballs, bacon seam-side down on the rack in the prepared pan. Bake for 30-40 minutes or until bacon is nicely browned and beginning to look crisp (the bacon won't crisp on the bottom, FYI).
