  • 1 pound hot Italian Sausage, ground
  • 1 pound Hamburger, ground
  • 1 package of Bacon
  • 1 medium Onion, sliced thin
  • 1 8 oz container Mushrooms, sliced and rinsed
  • Seasonings: Cavender's and Pepper
  • First, prep the sausage and hamburger by rolling the meat into 1/2 inch balls. Place them in a container or on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper until ready to cook.
  • Spray a large skillet with nonstick cooking spray. Line a cookie sheet with paper towels and place a wire rack on top. This will help drain grease from the bacon and meatballs.
  • Over medium-high heat, cook the bacon and set aside on wire rack. Once you cook the bacon, drain the extra grease, leaving about a tablespoon of bacon grease in the skillet.
  • Next, cook the hamburger and sausage balls over medium heat. Sprinkle with Cavender's and pepper. Cook for 5-8 minutes. Set aside on a wire rack until all the meatballs have been cooked.
  • Drain any extra grease, and then add the mushrooms, onions, and more seasoning and cook over medium heat for 5 minutes. Turn the heat down to low, crumble the bacon, and add it in the skillet. Then, add the meatballs to the skillet. Cook on low for about 5 more minutes to heat through, stirring often.
