I'm posting this recipe because this is what I made last night and mentioned in the "What's For Dinner" Forum and a couple of posters asked how they were made. They turned out really well, but I had to drain the meatballs thoroughly before I added the barbecue sauce because they were really greasy.



BBQ Onion Meatball Bombs

Ingredients
  • 1 pound meatloaf mix (beef, pork, veal or use all beef if you prefer)
  • 1 egg
  • ½ cup bread crumbs
  • ½ cup shredded parmesan cheese
  • 3 yellow onions (choose med to large)
  • salt to taste
  • 1 package bacon
  • ½ c. Favorite BBQ sauce
Instructions
  1. Mix meat, egg, crumbs, cheese and salt.
  2. Cut top and bottom off onion, cut in half and peel off skin. Then separate the onion into layers. Use the larger outside layers.
  3. Take a small handful of your meatloaf mix and put it inside one onion layer.
  4. Gently press another layer on top of the mixture. You are making an onion seal around your large meatball.
  5. Continue with the rest. I made 4 but amounts can vary based on onion sizes.
  6. Wrap each "bomb" with 3 slices bacon and secure with toothpicks.
  7. Bake in a dish with sides (to catch grease) at 425 for approx. 40 minutes or until internal temp 165.
  8. Coat each bomb in barbecue sauce and bake an additional 5 minutes

Hunh. THis sounds really good! Your meatballs must have been really large if you only made 4! And shouldn't you have just needed 2 onions if you cut them in half?

I wanted to allow for extra in case I messed up one of the onion cups. They were large - big enough for an entree. I also had salad and garlic bread to go with them.
