Stuffed Onion Bombs Will Rock Your World!

Onion Bombs look small, but they are jam-packed with flavor and are surprisingly filling. With a meatball inside, sweet onion outside, and it all wrapped in bacon, this recipe hits all the marks as a delicious appetizer or main course.

You can try throwing these on the grill on medium-low heat, or simply stick 'em in the oven while you prep anything else you want. Baked potato or salad would be a perfect pairing, but these can also easily stand alone. Serve these stuffed bombs in BBQ sauce or ketchup and get dipping!
