Bacon-Wrapped Meatballs Ingredients

  • 1/2 kilo Ground beef
  • 1/2 Cup corned beef
  • 1 Small onion peeled, finely chopped
  • 3 cloves Garlic peeled, finely chopped
  • 1/4 Cup parsley leaves chopped
  • 1 teaspoon Salt or to taste
  • 1 teaspoon ground black pepper or to taste
  • 1 large Egg
  • 12 slices bacon cut in half
  • Oil for frying
  • 1/2 Cup water
  • 1 Cup cheddar cheese grated
  • 1 teaspoon mustard


  • In a large bowl mix ground beef, corned beef, onion, garlic, parsley, salt, pepper, and eggs. Mix well. Using a small ice cream scoop, form into balls. Transfer to a parchment-lined baking tray.
  • Wrap a piece of bacon around a meatball. Use a toothpick to secure the bacon. Repeat with remaining meatballs.
  • Heat enough oil in a saute pan over medium heat for frying. A deep fry thermometer should read about 350?F. Deep fry meatballs until bacon is crisp and meatballs are cooked through. Drain on a rack over paper towels. Pack once cooled.
  • Meanwhile, make cheese sauce: In a saucepan over medium heat, whisk water, cheese, and mustard until melted. Season to taste with salt and ground black pepper. Serve with meatballs.
