425g / 15oz Ground Beef

70g / 2.5oz Panko

25g / 1 oz BrainRub

1 Egg

10 Raw Bacon

10 Mozzarella Pearl


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 28g / 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 to large to wrap, just cut them down to size.

6. Wrap the meatball with a half slice of bacon and place it to rest on a clean surface with the end of the bacon on the bottom.

7. Freeze the meatballs so when you cook them the cheese won’t blow out.

8. Cook in a nonstick pan at medium heat. You only need to crisp up the bacon so roll them around the pan as necessary. The ambient heat will cook the ground beef enough and get the cheese to a melting point.

**If you use the metric measurements you will make 20 meatballs. The standard measurements may have some meat left over. **
