I love meals of appetizers or tapas, so am constantly on the lookout for simple recipes that won’t take hours to fix, but still could be used for a snack or dinner.
Watch How to Make The Pizza Bombs:
These bacon meatballs pizza balls are perfect for my “cocktail parties” for the family and go well with many of the other appetizers I serve.
The kids love it and it’s the one time we really talk since we turn off the TV, cell phones, and computers to give it a more party-like atmosphere.
These are so easy that, unlike many of the many dishes I make where I freeze some ahead, I do them right before we eat.
I changed the recipe a bit. Instead of bacon bits, I used crumbled real bacon. I cook several packages at once when I buy it.
Before I put in the pan, I cut the slab of bacon crosswise to create ½ to 2/3 inch strips.
As it fries the slices separately and I have perfect small crumbles.
It takes just a minute to drain it on a paper towel to remove excess fat. Then into the freezer, it goes for about an hour on a cookie sheet.
All that’s left is to pack it in small zip lock bags for the freezer.
That way, I’m ready when I need it and have real bacon, which I prefer over bacon bits and have only one clean up.
I changed another thing in the recipe. Instead of making browned hamburger pieces, I used the frozen meatballs. It was less messy and easier to wrap the biscuit around the ball.
You can make the balls ahead of time too.
Just let them thaw for a while before making the recipe.
With the meatballs and bacon cooked, it takes about five minutes to assemble the recipe and another 15 minutes to cook it.
That means it’s also great for a late night snack, particularly when the kids are in bed and I don’t have to share. They’re just so YUMMY!!
