  • Ingredients

    1 lb bacon, cut in half (my package had 18 slices so I had 36 half-slices of bacon)
    1 cup brown sugar
    36 grape tomatoes
    Iceberg lettuce, cut into cubes

    Special Sauce:
    1/2 cup mayonnaise
    2 tablespoons French dressing
    4 teaspoons sweet pickle relish
    1 tablespoon finely minced white onion
    1 teaspoon white vinegar
    1 teaspoon sugar
    1/8 teaspoon salt

  • Directions

    1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
    2. Put brown sugar in a small bowl.
    3. Spray a broiler pan with nonstick cooking spray.
    4. Cut a pound of bacon strips in half and wrap them around the meatballs (thawed) securing the bacon in place with a toothpick.
    5. Dredge the bacon wrapped meatballs in the sugar, pressing to coat it well.
    6. Place them on the greased broiler pan and bake at 350 degrees for 30-35 minutes, depending on how you like your bacon.
    7. Let the meatballs cool until you’re able to handle them, then assemble the rest of the skewer, placing a grape tomato then a stack of iceberg lettuce.
    8. Combine the ingredients for your special dipping sauce and stir until they’re blended.  Serve on the side of your skewers
