Chipotle Bacon Bombs

 

Chipotle Bacon Meatball Bombs are a good meaty snack or appetizer for parties or tailgating. A great start for anything we come up with. How about Chipotle Bacon Bombs on a Stick? We let our “Crash Test Dummies” try these out and they were a huge hit. There were no survivors…and no need for the main course. We all could have just eaten these for hours.

We’ve done these before and tonight we are just mixing up the seasoning and sauce. That’s the beauty of these that it’s easy to go with any flavor combination you like.

Patti got me a 10-pound bag of the best, frozen meatballs she could find. She wrapped them with a half strip of thick cut bacon and put them on skewers. Liking things with a little ZING I gave them a good sprinkling Roasted Garlic and Chipotle seasoning blend with a generous coating of Country Bob’s BBQ Sauce.

Directions: Chipotle Bacon Bombs

Cut bacon in half, I find that kitchen shears are the easiest for cutting bacon. Then, take a piece of bacon and wrap it around the meatball and slide it on a bamboo skewer to hold it in place.

Then, season to taste. You can use whatever you like and as much. We like a Roasted Garlic Chipotle Seasoning. Put them on a platter and head for the grill. I let them “Smoke” for 30 minutes before turning the heat up to 45 minutes @ 400 degrees (205c) or so. This is when you crisp them up and add the Country Bob’s BBQ Sauce.

About our Recipes

The important thing to keep in mind is TIME & TEMPERATURE. You can even do some of them in the oven or crock pot, but, then you lose all the flavors you get from cooking outdoors. But sometimes it does rain.

Remember that a recipe is simply an outline; it is not written in stone. Don’t be afraid to make changes to suit your taste.

Take it and run with it….
