I instantly felt completely guilty after making this dish – swearing to never make it more than once  a year but possibly never to make it again. But what do you expect when you see a dish called bacon bombs? I want to be clear – this tastes amazing but there is absolutely nothing healthy about this. No way to rationalize eating something like this – except the cheesy, gooey, crispy, savory bacon bombs bliss that erupts in your mouth when you eat it. I also need to give credit for the inspiration from Oh Bite It where I first found this bacon bombs recipe. Since I love making things from scratch, this is my variation on this – making the biscuit batter from scratch.

 

Tools :

  1. 2 large bowls
  2. wooden spoon
  3. 1 box of toothpicks
  4. Deep pot

Instructions :

Making the Dough

  1. Cut your butter into small pieces

  2. Drop the butter into your flour

  3. Using a pastry cutter or 2 knives (as I haven’t bought a pastry cutter or mixer yet), cut the pieces mixing them with flour until the dough starts to look like breadcrumbs. Don’t just mix everything as much as you can – or you’ll end up with a moist paste – and you don’t want that.
  4. Once it looks like breadcrumbs, add your 3/4 cup milk
  5. Mix gently until just moist
  6. Now knead the dough until you get a ball of sorts. This shouldn’t take more than 5 – 6 rolls around the bowl.
  7. Now make small balls about 2/3 to 1/2 the size of a golfball.

Making the Bombs :

  1. Take your Mozzarella and cut it into small blocks – 1/2 inch by 1/2 inch
    cheese blocks
  2. Take one of your dough balls, use your thumb to make a deep indentation and place the cheese block inside of it.

  3. Roll the ball around and close the indentation. If you’ve done this right, you won’t be able to see where the cheese is – it should look like a ball again.

  4. Wrap the ball in a bacon strip – as tightly as you can.

  5. Seal it with a toothpick
  6. Repeat for the rest of the balls

  7. Deep fry each ball ( you can do several at a time) until the bacon is crispy – just a few minutes

  8. Remove and drain onto a paper towel

  9. Serve hot… They will start to explode and definitely when people eat them….
