Triple Bacon Meatballs {Bacon Lovers}

So... I took a bunch of bacon and shoved it into 55 meatballs. I share this recipe for Triple Bacon Meatballs because I deeply love you.

I make no bones about it - I love bacon. BAAAAAAAACON.

A while back Papa Murphy's had this pizza that was called the Bacon, Bacon, Bacon Pizza. {would they just hire me to come up with their pizza names already?!?} The pizza was crammed full of bacon, bacon and more bacon - and lucky for me, my in-laws left some after watching the kiddos one day. {score!} The pizza was amazing, I can't believe it's not on Papa Murphy's regular menu. The Bacon, Bacon, Bacon Pizza was the complete inspiration for these Triple Bacon Meatballs

Ground pork, Canadian bacon, peppered bacon, maple bacon. drool.

I had never thought about ordering Ground Bacon at the meat shoppe, but now I'm wondering how wonderful it would be. This time I just put cut up pieces of raw bacon into my food processor and processed until the meat was in small-ish chunks.

Then I diced the Canadian Bacon like I had OCD...

Ok, so we got ground pork, peppered bacon, maple bacon, canadian bacon, green onions, red onions, garlic, salt, pepper and bbq sauce.

Wash your hand because they are about to get dirty...

I like to grill my meatballs using a meatball bbq rack I found somewhere online. This damn internet... I recently found it on amazon for $18.60 - great deal!! {am I the only one who pronounces it uh-mazin'?}

These Triple Bacon Meatballs are spectacular - I don't know how else to describe them. They have ground bacon in them, so that should pretty much sum it up. SPECTACULAR.

Triple Bacon Meatballs
½lb peppered bacon
½lb maple bacon
1lb ground pork
4 oz. canadian bacon
½ cup green onions, loosely packed
½ cup red onions, loosely packed
1½ tablespoons chopped garlic
¼ cup bbq sauce {none of that high fructose syrup garbage!}
1 teaspoon salt
½ teaspoon ground black pepper
1. Cut bacon into 1” chunks and process in food processor until resembles ground meat.
2. Mix all ingredients together, preferably with hands to ensure complete mixing. Roll into 1.5” balls and either grill or bake. If using grill rack, grill for about 13 minutes or until turning golden-brown. If baking, place on baking sheet and bake at 375 for 15 minutes or until turning golden-brown.
3. Freakin’ enjoy!

That's what I gladly deal with on a daily basis...
