Ok here is a little photo tutorial to make a crazy cheddar stuffed onion & bacon wrapped meatball. It is literally and figuratively quite a mouthful !!!! There are substitutions that can be made using different types of ground meats but I used fresh lean ground from Anderson Farms in Ashton mixed with a little bit of homemade bbq sauce, diced onions and brown sugar, cumin & chili powder.
1.Carefully peel the outer layers of a large onion
2. mix up your meat mixture
3. cut up some of your favourite cheese
4.stuff the cheese inside the meatballs
5.stuff the meatballs into the onion
6.wrap them up with bacon
7. oven bake them until an internal temperature of 75 degreesGreat to premake and refrigerate and then toss on the bbq when company comes over!!
How to pair wine with meatballs? Do you dare?
Many Italian-style reds, including Barbera and those made with Sangiovese (like Chianti) have enough heft for the meat.
