SCD Recipe: Bacon Cheeseburger Turkey Meatballs

The idea for these came to me while I was thinking of something that might be good for a Super Bowl party. These work perfectly for that or pretty much any time. They are really tasty with gooey cheese and bacon with a hint of tomato and mustard, just a like a real cheeseburger!

Ingredients
Servings: meatballs
Instructions
  1. If bacon is not already cooked - cook it crisp and set aside to cool while you prepare the meatball mixture
  2. Heat ghee or oil in a frying pan and add the chopped onion and minced garlic
  3. Preheat oven to 400 degrees
  4. Cook onion and garlic until onion is soft and just starting to brown a little - 5 - 10 minutes
  5. Remove onions and garlic from heat and set aside
  6. Combine ground turkey, egg, Parmesan, tomato paste, mustard and spices in a large bowl
  7. Mix until well combined
  8. Stir in onions and garlic
  9. Stir in bacon
  10. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper (for easier cleanup)
  11. Form golf ball sized meatballs and line them up on the baking sheet
  12. Poke a couple cubes of cheese into each meatball
  13. Bake for 25 minutes or until meat is cooked through
  14. Serve as a lettuce wrap with fresh sliced tomatoes if desired
Recipe Notes

I made my meatballs a little bigger because I wanted to make a lettuce wrap. If you want more of an appetizer finger food you can make them smaller (use one cube of cheese per meatball) and bake for about 20 minutes.
