15oz Ground Beef

2.5oz Panko Bread Crumbs

1 oz BrainRub

1 Egg

10 Raw Bacon

Mozzarella Pearls

LargoRado BBQ Sauce


1. Combine ground beef, panko, BrainRub and egg in a bowl and mix thoroughly. Don’t be shy. Get that stuff good and smashed together, like you’re mad at it!

2. Cut the raw bacon strips into half slices.

3. Portion out the meat in 1oz portions.

4. Take a portion and flatten it out using the palms of your hands.

5. Place a cheese pearl in the center of the meat and wrap it up. Be sure to roll it around in your palms to make sure you’ve sealed the cheese in. And if the cheese pearls you find are too large to wrap, just cut them down to size.

6. Wrap the meatball with a half slice of bacon and place it in a tupperware with the end of the bacon on the bottom. Use multiple containers if they will not all fit in one. Do not stack the meatballs!

7. Put the sealed tupperware in the freezer, preferably overnight. (Freezing the meatballs keeps the cheese from blowing out when you cook them.)

8. Cook in a nonstick pan at medium heat starting with the ends of the bacon on the bottom. You only need to crisp up the bacon so roll them around the pan as necessary. The ground beef should cook to a safe temp and get the cheese to a melting point as the bacon cooks. (Check with a meat thermometer if you are unsure.)

9. Let rest before drizzling with LargoRado BBQ Sauce. Serve, and watch them disappear!
