  • 2 lbs lean ground beef
  • 1 egg
  • 1/2 cup plain bread crumbs
  • 1/2 pkg onion soup mix
  • 2 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon pepper
  • 1 pkg bacon (450 g)
  • Sliced cheddar cheese
Choice hamburger toppings:
  • Lettuce
  • 8 Cocktail tomatoes, cut in half
  • 16 Pickles
  1. Combine the ground beef, egg, bread crumbs, onion soup mix, Worcestershire sauce, salt and pepper. Shape the ground beef mixture into 16 meatballs. Set aside.
  2. Heat a large frying pan over medium heat. When the pan is hot, transfer the meatballs to pan and brown the meatballs on the outside on all sides. Remove from the frying pan to cool slightly.
  3. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F. Soak your wooden skewers for at least 30 minutes before you’re ready to cook your kabobs.
  4. Cut the bacon slices in half. Wrap each meatball with bacon and thread them onto the skewer.
  5. Place the skewered meatballs on a foil lined cookie sheet and cook in the oven for 30 minutes. Turn the meatballs and cook for another 10 minutes. Adjust cooking time based on the size of the meatballs.
  6. Remove the meatballs from the oven and place a piece of cheese on top of each meatball while it’s still hot so it melts.
  7. While meatballs are cooking, prepare the toppings. Chop into large bite size pieces and thread onto smaller skewers, leaving room for a meatball. Set aside.
  8. Carefully transfer the cooked meatballs onto the smaller skewers along with the toppings and arrange on a platter for serving.
Recipe Notes

**These meatballs could also be cooked on the grill instead of in the oven. Place a sheet of foil on the grill as the bacon will cause the fire to flame up.
