These little bacon balls are amazing. I kinda ate the whole pan.  You have to make these.  They are grain free, egg free and dairy free. Oh and did I mention so GOOD!!! 

For the meatballs:

  • 1pound grass fed ground beef
  • 2 tbs ground flax
  • 1 tbs liquid smoke
  • 1 tsp kosher salt
  • 1 tsp black pepper
  • 1 tsp fresh garlic, minced
  • 1/2 tsp smoked paprika
  • 10 slices thick-cut bacon, sliced in half crosswise

  • For the sauce:
  • 1 ½ cups cider vinegar
  • ¾ cup water
  • ½ cup ketchup, organic sugar free
  • ¼ cup coconut palm sugar or honey
  • 1 tbs crushed red pepper flakes
  • 1 ½ tbs kosher salt
  • ½ tsp black pepper

  1. Directions:
  1. In a large mixing bowl, combine beef, flax, liquid smoke, salt, pepper, garlic, and paprika; mix by hand.

 Cover and chill in the refrigerator for at least 30 minutes.

  1. Preheat oven to 375ºF. Line a baking sheet with foil and place a wire rack on top.

  1. With wet hands, roll the meat mixture into 20 golf–size balls. Wrap half a slice of bacon around each meatball and place on the wire rack with the seam side down. Bake for 20 minutes.

  1. Meanwhile, make the sauce. Combine all ingredients in a small saucepan over low heat and stir until sugar dissolves.

  1. Spoon 1 tablespoon of sauce over each meatball. Bake for 10 minutes. Spoon another tablespoon of sauce over each meatball and bake for 10 more minutes.

  1. Remove baking sheet from the oven and let meatballs cool on the rack for 5 minutes. Serve with extra sauce on the side for dipping. Don’t forget the toothpicks!
