This is a fun recipe that your family will love making almost as much as eating. Bacon, onion and ham wrapped around cheese-stuffed meatballs — it might sound complicated, but it's far from it. This recipe is actually quite simple and a super fun dish to make with your family where everyone can get involved. Assembling the meatballs can be such a fun activity, and seeing the results of everyone's work at the end is so satisfying.
We mix ground beef and pork together for the meatballs. The mixture of both meats adds that extra depth in flavor. Bread crumbs and eggs bind everything together, with diced ham and onions mixing into the actual meatball. I recommend using Black Forest ham to add to the smoky flavor of the bacon. The meatball is formed around a nice chunk of colby jack cheese and then wrapped in ham, onion petals and finally bacon. There's nothing like the satisfying feeling of cutting into a meatball that oozes out melted cheese.
