8 to 10 slices applewood smoked bacon
1 pound ground chuck
1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
1 package onion soup mix
1/2 cup Crispy Bake
1 tablespoon coarse black pepper
1 tablespoon beef stock
8 to 10 bocconcini mozzarella balls
Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F.
Arrange the bacon slices on a sheet pan. Put in the oven and bake until crisp, about 8 to 10 minutes. Remove the bacon from the pan to a cutting board and chop. Set aside.
In a large bowl, mix together the beef, Worcestershire, onion soup mix, Cripsy Bake, black pepper, stock and the chopped bacon.
Form portions of the meat around bocconcini to make smooth balls. Arrange the meatballs on a sheet pan with a rack and bake until thoroughly browned, about 10 to 15 minutes.
