BBQ Venison Meatballs Wrapped in Bacon

 Hello All and Happy Holidays!

      Yes this was created on Christmas Eve and we want to wish everyone a very happy and safe holiday!  If you celebrate Christmas we think you will enjoy this post, if you do not, we think you will enjoy it more!  So did everyone hear the big news!  Santa is NOT coming for Christmas!

     He stopped by the house and well now his deer are wrapped in Bacon and coated in a BBQ honey sauce...  Looks like everyone has been bad this year!  Well no need to panic everyone!  Well nobody reads or watches our show so were not worried.  However yes this is Venison, no Rain Deer were harmed in the filming of this post/show.  Today however we are showing you how to make a great easy and different style meat ball.  We are doing Venison Balls!  Easy and cheap, they are "under a buck".  We do think if you enjoy Venison you will enjoy this meal!

Note you can use only one pound of meat and cut the ingredients in half for a smaller sized amount.

Serves 15-20

Prep Time: 10 Minutes
Cook Time: 30 Minutes
Total Time: 40 Minutes

2 Pounds of Venison ground meat
1/2 Cup Italian Style Bread Crumbs
1/4 Cup Milk
1 Egg
1 Table Spoon Chili Powder
2 Table Spoons Olive Oil
1 Table Spoon Garlic Powder
1 1/2 Table Spoons of Italian Seasoning.  You can make it with, dried Parsley, dried Basil, Dried Oregano, and dried Thyme.  about 1/2 teaspoon of each.
Pinch of Salt and Pepper
1/3 Cup of Parmesan Cheese
1 package of bacon.
BBQ Sauce- This is for the glaze so amounts depend on how many you make.
Honey- This is for the glaze so amounts depend on how many you make.

Place the two pounds of meat in a large bowl.
Season with Salt, Pepper and Garlic Powder
In a medium bowl add the bread crumbs, milk, egg, Italian seasoning, olive oil and Parmesan cheese.
Mix all the ingredients well into a paste substance.
Add the paste to the meat and stir in very well.
Place tin foil down over a cooking sheet and spray with non stick solution
Heat your oven to  350 degrees Fahrenheit
Cut the bacon in half or thirds.
With a small or medium ice cream scoop, scoop the meat into a ball form and place it on the tin foil.
Repeat till the pan is covered.
Wrap a piece of bacon around the meat ball and put a tooth pick through it holding it together.
Once set place the tray in the oven and let cook at  350 degrees Fahrenheit for 20 minutes.
While cooking mix your BBQ Sauce and Honey.  In a small bowl add 3 parts BBQ to 1 Part honey.  How much is up to how many meat balls you are doing.  Don't stress on this part its just the glaze.
After 20 minutes remove and with a brush, brush on the glaze over all the meatballs, turning them and getting all of them covered.
Place back in the oven for 5 minutes.
Remove after 5 minutes and re-glaze again.
Place back in the oven for 5 more minutes.
Remove and plate.
