Write a Review Read Reviews
  • Yields: 6 Servings


  • 1 lb lean ground beef
  • ½ lb ground pork
  • 1 lb pepper jack cheese (1-in cubes)
  • ½ lb thin sliced bacon
  • 1 small sweet onion
  • 2 fresh jalapeño (minced)
  • 1/3 cup instant mashed potatoes seeded and minced (optional, leave seeds in for extra heat)
  • 2 tsp onion powder (optional)
  • 1 tsp garlic powder
  • 1 tbsp salt
  • 1 tbsp pepper
  • wooden skewers (soaked in water minimum 1 hr before grilling)


  1. Set cheese and bacon aside.
  2. Combine remaining ingredients, mixing well.
  3. Using meat mixture, form meatball in hand (2–3 oz.), push center in and place 1 cube pepper jack cheese, roll in hand to close in cheese and create a solid stuffed meatball with no holes.
  4. Place bacon strip on cutting board and press/stretch out gently with hands. (Thinning out bacon will ensure a crispy grilled product and make bacon go further. Depending on size of meatball, you may only use 1/2 a strip per ball.)
  5. Wrap meatball completely and place on skewer (optional).
  6. Grill over your favorite Kingsford® flavor briquet until bacon is crispy and meat is cooked thoroughly.

For safe meat preparation, reference the USDA website.
