    • 1 tablespoon thyme

  • Add the onions to a bowl and add in the rest of the ingredients.Mix and mash them up with a fork.
  • Form small meatballs with your hands, about 8 ping pong ball-sized meatballs.
  • Wrap each meatball in 1 strip of bacon and place it flap-side down on a baking sheet/rack.
