Bacon Wrapped Meatballs

Diane Schmidt


If you want to try something a little different with your meatballs, this is a very tasty way to change things up a bit. I brought these to a church potluck and there weren't any leftover!
FYI: to make them even better, cut string cheese sticks into bite size pieces and wrap the meatball mixture around it, and then the bacon...YUM!!
