Product ImageAbruzzese Italian Style Meatballs
1 pack
Carando Abruzzese meatballs
1 pack
6 slices
Center Cut Bacon
6 slices
1 cup
Golden Raisins
1 cup
1 tablespoon
Fresh garlic, minced
1 tablespoon
2 tablespoons
Shallot, minced
2 tablespoons
3.5 ounces
Capers, drained
3.5 ounces
1/2 cup
White wine
1/2 cup
3 tablespoons

Directions


  1. Preheat the oven to 375ºF

  2. Cut the slices of bacon in half, then wrap one piece of bacon around each meatball and secure the bacon with a toothpick

  3. Place the meatballs on a lined baking sheet and bake for about 25 minutes, turning once halfway through the cook time, or until the meatballs reach an internal temperature of 160ºF and the bacon is cooked

  4. While the meatballs are cooking, combine the raisins, garlic, shallot, capers, and wine in a small saucepan and bring to a boil, reduce to a simmer, and cook for about 5 minutes. Allow to cool slightly

  5. When the mixture has cooled, puree the mixture in the beaker of a blender and transfer to a bowl

  6. When the meatballs are done, brush each with the glaze and transfer to a platter, leaving the toothpicks in place for easy pick up

  7. Sprinkle the dill over the meatballs and serve immediately

Life is Delicious. Savor It.
