Jalapeno and Cheddar Meatballs

A quick fly-by post of tonight's dinner... loosely based on my previous version here:  Jalapeno Popper Meatballs This one I just mixed everything together instead - including the bacon.  This made it a super duper quick dinner item.  I served with roasted broccoli and garlic but feel free to serve with mashed potatoes or even french fries if that is what your family loves.

Jalapeno & Cheddar Meatballs

1 lb. ground beef
1 t fresh minced garlic
1/4 c wheat germ (or any filler you like to help bind it - almond flour, oatmeal, eat)
1 egg
salt and pepper
1 c shredded cheddar cheese
bacon - cooked and crumbled

In a mixing bowl combine everything and mix well.  Form small balls.  Place in lightly greased or sprayed pan or foil lined pan.   Bake at 425 until browned, and done in the center.  Mine took about 25-30 minutes.
