EASY Bacon Cheeseburger Meatballs

These tender meatballs are packed with smokey bacon and cheese, making them taste like a cheeseburger without the bun. So easy they are perfect for a quick weeknight dinner! 


Meatballs are always a hit at our house. I usually make them with sauce and spaghetti, but this recipe totally caught my eye a few years back, so I decided to give it a try. My kids LOVE cheeseburgers, so I knew they would totally be into these meatballs. 

These meatballs are super good! I love the sweet onion flavour, paired with the smokey bacon and beef. The ketchup and Dijon mustard bring it all together, to make them taste like an actual cheeseburger. They are nice and tender and the cheese just gets all bubbly and crisp on the outside. I served mine with mashed potatoes with gravy, and broccoli. I also garnished them with pickles and tomatoes, because that's how we like to dress our burgers. The kids said they were delicious and they really didn't miss the bun at all!


Bacon Cheeseburger Meatballs

1 small onion, chopped
6 slices bacon, chopped
1 lb lean ground beef
¼ cup almond meal (almond flour)
2/3 C cheddar cheese, shredded
2 Tbs ketchup
2 tsp Dijon mustard
1 egg
Salt & pepper

In a large non stick skillet, cook the onion and bacon over medium heat, until bacon is crispy and onions begin to caramelise; about 10-15 minutes. Using a slotted spoon, remove bacon mixture from skillet, to a paper towel lined plate. Let cool.

Preheat oven to 450 degrees F.

In a large bowl, combine the ground beef, almond flour, cheese, egg, ketchup, mustard, salt, pepper and cooled bacon mixture. Form ground beef mixture into 15 equal sized meatballs (a bit larger than a golf ball) and place in a 9x13 inch baking dish. 

Bake in preheated oven for 18-20 minutes; until cooked through. Allow the meatballs to set 5 minutes before serving.

  1. I love this idea! Have you ever tried putting a cubed piece of cheese in the center of the meatballs so the cheese is melty when you bite into the meatball?

No Yeast Old Fashion Cinnamon Rolls

 These delicious cinnamon sticky rolls have been in my family for over 40 yrs. No yeast is required, so you can whip up a batch of these in no time. Still tender, sticky sweet and delicious! Ever since I can remember Mom would make these as a special treat. It wasn't too often, but every once in a while, we'd come home to these no yeast cinnamon rolls, as an after school snack. Growing up, this is what I thought cinnamon rolls were. I wasn't aware that there was a yeast version of cinnamon rolls. As much as I LOVE the yeast version, this no yeast version seems to make an appearance more frequently here at home.  Since there is no yeast in the dough, it does not need to rise for 30 minutes before being rolled out and baked. When I worked in the retirement home the residents were always excited when I made these cinnamon rolls. They said it reminded them of their childhood. It was amazing seeing how happy a simple recipe could make them. I don't make these very often and

Black Forest Roll Cake

Light and fluffy cherry and whipped cream filling is rolled in an airy sponge cake. 13 years ago, I made a dinner that I was totally proud of. Not only did it taste wonderful, it looks fantastic too. I was so proud of myself that I took a photo, which I wanted to share with my friends and family. Only I didn't know how I could share it with everyone, at the same time. Then a thought came to me- a blog!!!  I've always been a foodie. While growing up, I'd often watch talk shows, just to see the cooking segments. I'd sit with a pen and paper, quickly jotting down ingredients and directions, to hopefully recreate recipes at home. I still remember a beet salad I begged my mom to let me make, asking her to buy raspberry wine vinegar for the dressing. It turned out to be something neither of us enjoyed, and up until a few years ago, Mom still had the vinegar in her cupboard.  I first started my first blog, Hun... What's  for Dinner?, as a way to share recipes with my famil

The BEST Bacon Cheddar Deviled Eggs

 Hard boiled eggs are transformed into a magnificent, indulgent appetizer, by mixing the yolks with sharp cheddar cheese and smokey bacon. A welcome addition to any gathering and a great way to use those coloured hard boiled Easter eggs! Jump to Recipe Eater growing up was always a magical time. I love how my parents tried to make holidays such as Eater and Christmas so magical. I was always in awe when I would wake up to Easter treats on the couch, on Easter morning. It was a welcome sight after partaking in Lent for 40 days. Every lent we would give up candy, making us appreciate our Easter treats all that much more. Our family is Catholic, so Easter and Christmas were centered around religion and teachings, but I appreciate that Mom and Dad also made it fun and let us believe in things like the Easter Bunny and Santa Clause.  Mom would buy the Easter egg dying kits and we would colour eggs on the Saturday before Easter. Everyone would choose their favourite to enjoy for breakfast af
