Furthermore, when I saw that they were wrapped in bacon? I just couldn’t wait to make these! And when my part guest tried them they were are gobbled up immediately. See the instructions below:


2 yellow onions
1 lb. ground beef
1/4 cup parsley, chopped
1/4 cup onions, diced
1 pack of bacon
1/4 cup mushrooms, chopped
1 Tbsp. brown sugar
1 Tbsp. spicy ketchup
1 tsp. soy sauce
1 tsp. worcestershire sauce
1/4 cup Panko bread crumbs
1 bottle of BBQ sauce

To start making these tasty BBQ meatball onion bombs, preheat your oven to 425 °F.
Cut off the tops and bottoms of the onions and remove the exterior skin. Cut the onion in half and peel the layers apart, keeping the biggest layers to stuff with meat.
Setting the onion layers aside, mix the ground beef, diced onion, parsley, mushroom, brown sugar, condiments, and bread crumbs in a large mixing bowl by hand.
Place the meatloaf mixture inside two of the onion layer pieces.
Wrap the onion meatballs in bacon, using three slices per ball. Secure the bacon with toothpicks to keep it from unraveling during cooking.
Bake in a cookware at 425 °F for 40 minutes. Then Cover the balls in BBQ sauce and bake for an additional 5 minutes.
Now you have the perfect addition to your party called a bacon meatball onion bomb that is both sweet and savory!
