Compliments of Team Traeger , these meatball onion bombs will be ready in no time at all. And wrapped in bacon? Oh yeah!


  • 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


To start making these tasty BBQ meatball onion bombs, preheat your oven to 425 F.


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.


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.


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


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


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