This simple recipe will knock the socks off your meat-lover family members. I cannot wait to try this out – it looks AMAZING!

Here is what you’ll need:

  • 2 yellow onions
  • 1 lb. ground beef
  • 1/4 cup onions, diced
  • 1/4 cup parsley, chopped
  • 1/4 cup mushrooms, chopped
  • 1 Tbsp. brown sugar
  • 1 Tbsp. spicy ketchup
  • 1 tsp. soy sauce
  • 1 tsp. worcestershire sauce
  • 1/4 cup Panko bread crumbs
  • 1 pack of bacon
  • 1 bottle of BBQ sauce

Team Traeger

Preheat your oven and 475 and let’s get started!

Cut off the tops and bottoms of the onions and remove the exterior skin. Cut the onion in half and peel the layers apart, keeping the biggest layers to stuff with meat.


Team Traeger

Setting the onion layers aside, mix the ground beef, diced onion, parsley, mushroom, brown sugar, condiments, and bread crumbs in a large mixing bowl by hand.


Team Traeger

Place a handful of the meatloaf mixture inside two of the onion layer pieces.


Team Traeger

Bring out the BACON! Wrap the onion meatballs in bacon, using three slices per ball. Secure the bacon with toothpicks to keep it from unraveling during cooking.


Team Traeger

Bake in a dish at 425 for 40 minutes. Cover the balls in BBQ sauce and bake for an additional 5 minutes.

YUM!! These will sure to be a hit this weekend.
