The combinations for complete meal ideas are endless when you begin with such a versatile main course like Bacon Cheeseburger Meatballs!
Some of the different ways that I love to use this recipe are:

- to keep on hand as a satisfying and filling after school snack or school lunch.
This recipe calls for cheddar cheese, however use whatever your favorite cheese may be! Mozzarella or a spicy jalapeno monterey jack cheese would be equally delicious! Use what you crave or what you have on hand and you won’t go wrong!
I love the addition of fried onions in this recipe but if you do not happen to have them on hand, you can simply use onion soup mix as a replacement. If you have fussy eaters who are not onion fans, just omit the fried onion and use 1 tsp. onion powder in the meat mixture for flavour. Both are great substitutions which work well.
Bacon Cheeseburger Meatballs are a simple, super scrumptious recipe that taste just like a cheeseburger – minus the bun!
