BBQ Bacon Meatballs


for 2 servings

  • 250 g (9 oz) beef mince
  • 250 g (9 oz) sausage meat
  • 75 g (⅔ cup) bread crumb
  • 40 g (¼ cup) onion, chopped, half a normal-sized onion
  • 2 cloves garlic, chopped
  • 1 egg
  • 1 pack grated mozzarella cheese
  • 6 rashers bacon
  • BBQ sauce, to taste


  1. Preheat oven to 180°C fan (200°C or 400°F).
  2. Mix the beef mince, sausage meat, breadcrumbs, chopped onion, garlic cloves and egg together in a large bowl until thoroughly combined. It’s easiest to use your hands for this!
  3. Roll mixture into golf ball sized balls. Use your thumb to create a dent in the balls, add a pinch of mozzarella and seal.
  4. Cut the bacon rashers in half and roll the meatballs starting from the bottom of the rasher to wrap them.
  5. Place meatballs onto a foil-covered tray and bake for 20 minutes.
  6. Remove from oven and brush with BBQ sauce, bake for 5 additional minutes. Repeat the brushing and baking two more times to get an extra thick layer of BBQ sauce.
  7. Enjoy!
