Turkey Bacon Club Meatballs


2 lbs ground turkey
1 lb bacon
1.5 cups sharp yellow cheddar cheese, shredded
2 cups sweet onions, chopped
.5 cups fresh parsley
3 eggs
Hot sauce, to taste
1.5 cups breadcrumbs (I love challah breadcrumbs in this recipe.)
1 tbsp salt
1 tbsp pepper
Your favorite bread or roll
1 tomato, sliced


Bake the bacon in a 350F oven until crisp. Once cooled, chop coarsely and put aside. Reserve 3 tbsp of the rendered bacon fat and put aside.
Combine chopped bacon, bacon fat, cheese, parsley, eggs, breadcrumbs, salt, pepper and hot sauce in a bowl.
Add ground turkey to the mixture and combine thoroughly.
Form the meatballs, about 2oz each and place on a sheet pan. Bake at 350F for about 15 minutes, or until cooked through.
Use the meatballs to make a sandwich how you like, with lettuce, sliced tomato, mayonnaise or your favorite condiments.
