Ingredients

Meat Mixture

  • 1 large egg
  • 1 envelope onion soup mix
  • 1 pound ground beef

Cheese

  • 1 cup cheese curds (or about 16 pieces)

Coating

  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 cup crushed Saltines, about 30 crackers
  • 4 bacon strips, cooked and crumbled

Frying

  • 5 tablespoons canola oil

Instructions

  1. In a large bowl, combine egg and soup mix. Crumble ground beef over mixture and mix well. 

  2. Divide into 14-16 portions.

  3. Add cheese curds to the center of each meatball making sure it is completely inside and covered with meat. Reshape into a ball.

  4. In a shallow bowl, beat eggs for coating. Place cracker crumbs and crumbled bacon in another bowl. Dip meatballs into eggs, then coat with bacon crumbs.

  5. Heat oil in a large cast-iron over medium heat. Cook meatballs until meat is no longer pink and outside is golden brown, 10-12 minutes. Flip meatballs over often so each side browns.

Recipe Notes

Scallions make a great garnish because there is onion soup mix in the recipe, but they are not necessary.
