    In my house, we love watching football together.  I’m a die-hard Broncos fan, while hubby cheers for the Buffalo Bills.

    We have lived in Baltimore for a good amount of time and as a result, we both like root for the Ravens as well. But make no mistake, we are still loyal to our respective teams.

    While my family tradition involves Chile Relleno Bites and a heaping pile of Neon BBQ Chicken Nachos, I’m always on the lookout for new munchies to break it up a bit.

    If you ask me, there is nothing better than meatballs bubbling in a slow cooker with BBQ sauce or bacon, so why not bring the two together?  BBQ Bacon Wrapped Meatballs: ta-da!

    I’ve tried these bad boys in the slow cooker and the bacon didn’t stay put. It’s best to throw them in the oven so each bite is absolutely perfect.

    You can use frozen meatballs, but the homemade variety always taste just a bit better and in reality, don’t take much more time.

    If you want to these BBQ Bacon Wrapped Meatballs up a notch, try adding a pinch of your favorite, melty cheese in the center of each meatball.

    While I like to use a homemade BBQ sauce, such as Chipotle Honey BBQ Sauce or Homemade BBQ Sauce, you can use your own homemade or jarred.
