With lean turkey meat, smokey turkey bacon, and melty cheddar cheese, these meatballs can be enjoyed as an appetizer, or on a bun.
When I was testing this recipe, I made a boatload to freeze, but they never made it to the freezer. They were eaten hot, cold, and also reheated, proving they’re delicious anyway you eat them. These two-bite balls have all the great flavors of a burger, without the commitment. But you won’t be able to eat just one.
With these Cheeseburger Meatballs on the menu at your next football party, they will surely steal the show.
Combine lean ground turkey meat, egg, and breadcrumbs. Get in there, use your hands, and combine the ingredients.
Add the good stuff: turkey bacon, sautéed onions, Dijon mustard, salt and pepper.
Finally, add the cheddar cheese.
Shape the meat mixture into 1.5 inch balls. Once they’re shaped, heat oil in a pan and add the meatballs. Brown the balls on all sides until cooked through.
Serve alone or on a bun with ketchup, mustard, and BBQ sauce. Enjoy!
