Today We Make Meatballs

"Actually could I have that to go?"

“Actually could I have that to go?”

So I mentioned a while ago that I entered a local meatball competition and lost. That’s what I get for choosing such a safe recipe! What do I have to do to win? Make Jamaican jerk turkey balls in brown sauce?! OH MY GOD I NEED TO MAKE THOSE! Anyways, here is the recipe for my Loser Balls Sketch Balls.

Bacon Gouda Meatballs1. What you need is a shit ton of things so I won’t bother listing them here.

Bacon Gouda Meatballs2. Chop up and fry a couple slices of bacon

Bacon Gouda Meatballs3. Chop up half an onion and try not to cry like a little baby about it.

Bacon Gouda Meatballs4. Shred a quarter pound of smoked gouda which I may or may not have bitten into first…

Bacon Gouda Meatballs5. Beat up and egg

Bacon Gouda Meatballs6.  Here’s the confusing part that I can’t do with my usual “flair”:

1/2 Tbsp Italian Seasoning
1/2 Tbsp Red Pepper Flakes
3/4 Tbsp Minced Garlic.
1 Tbsp worshestershire sauce
1 tsp adobo
1/2 tsp parsley

Bacon Gouda Meatballs7. Mix in the bacon and gouda and onions.

Bacon Gouda Meatballs8. Mix 1 1/4 pounds ground beef with 1/4 cup of bread crumb in and don’t go touching everything with your nasty-ass raw beef and egg hands.

Bacon Gouda Meatballs9. Form into balls and coat with olive oil. If you like big balls make big ones. If you like small ones then well…make em small.

Bacon Gouda Meatballs10. Bake in oven until desired internal donededness and then brown outside in oil in a pan.

Bacon Gouda Meatballs11. How could these lose anything?!

Bacon Gouda Meatballs12. I had mine that night with some simple red sauce which I may or may not give a recipe for at a later time. I added fresh basil leaves on top for extra fanciness.
