How to make it

  • Form large meatballs from the ground beef and wrap each one with 1/2 slice of bacon, affixing it to the meatball with a toothpick (Around 20 meatballs).
  • Place bacon wrapped meatballs on the slotted surface of a broiler pan so bacon grease drips away when cooking.
  • Bake for 30min. in a 300deg oven.
  • Turn each meatball over and bake for 30min more. This will cook the beef and remove lots of the grease from the bacon (It also minimizes bacon guilt)
  • Place meatballs in a 5qt. crockpot and add the tomato sauce so that it is approx. 3/4 full.
  • Cook on low for 8hrs.
  • Slice Italian bread thickly, place a slice onto a plate and smother with sauce and a couple of meatballs. I like to add parmesan cheese and crushed red peppers too! Enjoy!
