Bacon and Beef Meatballs

I created these a couple weeks ago when we were gearing up to head back home to MI. I had ground beef and bacon that needed to be used up, so bacon and beef meatballs were born! Jason loved them. Normally, I would use more fresh ingredients, but it was slim pickens in our house :)  Serve over pasta or as an appetizer.

Bacon and Beef Meatballs
Makes 6 Meatballs

1/2 lb lean ground beef
4 slices center cut bacon, chopped
1-2 garlic cloves, minced
2 tbsp freshly grated Parmesan
2 tbsp Italian bread crumbs
1 tsp dried basil
1/2 tsp dried oregano
1/4 tsp onion powder

1. Preheat oven to 375. Combine all ingredients in a small bowl and combine well.

2. Divide meat mixture into six equal parts and form into balls. Bake for 25-30 minutes, turning once halfway through (I bake mine on a wire rack to eliminate some of the grease). Remove from the oven and enjoy!
