DOUBLE & FREEZE TIP

Make a large batch so you always have Mini-Bacon Meatballs on hand. To double, prepare twice the amount of meatball mixture, and bake in batches to avoid overcrowding the pan. Freeze meatballs on a baking sheet, then transfer to an airtight container and keep frozen until ready to use.

Instructions

Preheat oven to 400°. Coat a broiler pan with nonstick spray.

Cook bacon in a skillet until starting to crisp, about 4 minutes; transfer to a paper-towel-lined plate. Pour off all but 1 Tbsp. drippings from skillet.

Sauté onion in drippings over medium heat until softened, about 3 minutes. Add garlic and cook 1 minute.

Combine ground sirloin, bacon, onion mixture, bread crumbs, parsley, paprika, salt, and pepper in a bowl. Stir in beaten egg.

Form mixture into 1-inch meatballs and place on prepared broiler pan. Bake meatballs until fully cooked, about 10 minutes.

Statistics

  • Average: 5.00
  • Standardized Average: 5.00
    This is the average rating for this recipe, relative to the average rating of all of the recipes on this site. The average rating of all the recipes on this site is 20.71. If we pin the population average to 3 (define 3 as the new 20.71) and adjust this particular recipe's average accordingly, we see that, relative to a population average of 3, this recipe's adjusted standardized average is 5.00. This number is useful in that it accounts for how different people have different interpretations of the rating system.
  • Median: 5
    This is the rating that is in the middle of the ratings distribution. It is generally more indicative of how much you will actually like this recipe than the average because the average is subject to being skewed by outliers.
  • Mode: 5
    This is the most common rating that people have given this recipe.
  • Standard Deviation: None
    This is a measure of how polarizing the recipe is; how much people disagree about it.
    0 is the least polarizing; everyone agrees on the rating.
    2.5 is the most polarizing.
    Recipes with lower standard deviations in the ratings are better for people who don't want surprises. Higher standard deviations are good for adventurous cooks. There is no standard deviation for this recipe because it has fewer than 2 ratings so far.
