My husband loves bacon burgers, so when I saw these in New York Times Best Selling Cookbook, Danielle Walker’s Against All Grain Celebrations I knew I had to make them! Her book is filled with a year of gluten-free, dairy-free, paleo recipes for every occasion I knew I had to make them! Perfect for the Superbowl for an easy appetizer, or even great during in the warmer months for backyard parties. I slightly adapted them using less bacon and cooked them on my grill pan since it’s too cold to use my grill but you can also make them outside on the grill.

  1. OMG!  These were so good and I loved the special sauce.  When I grill hamburgers I am making that sauce.  Yum! 

  2. I do not understand how this is 7 points for purple but only 1 point for green and blue. I am just wondering if I am missing something. Thank you.

  3. I beg to differ on the 7 points for the Purple Plan. Manually figuring I get 1.5 points each and with the calculator using the Nutrition Information I get 2 points each.

  4. Hi!  What are the cooking instructions for an air fryer?

    Thank you!

  5. Since we’re not doing weight watchers I made half the recipe into quarter pound burgers and served them on brioche buns. I used two slices of bacon and spicy brown mustard. Everyone really liked them

  6. Do you have a rec for a sugar free pickle and a sugar free mustard? Whole30 makes some ‘common’ items fairly hard to find. Sugar free bacon isn’t too hard to find-most days! 😉

  7. I really dislike mustard. Is there something I can replace it with?
    Thanks! 

  8.  When you add  these on the weight watchers quick add calculator it comes up as 2 points each   Am I doing something wrong???

  9. what is prepared mustard?

  10. These were great!  I ordered cute bamboo 4 inch app skewers from amazon prime.   I baked my meatballs at 400 around 10-12 minutes, didn’t take long.  Next time I might add a little more seasoning to the balls, maybe even worsh’ sauce and add bacon to skewers.  So so good! !

  11. Making these for the Superbowl! Thanks for sharing!! ????

  12. I love your recipes! Gina, do you have suggestions regarding where to purchase them?

  13. Perfect for Super Bowl!  Gina, is there a way to mark or save recipes to a favorites here on your site. Your recipes are the reason for my WW success this time round. Thank you!

  14. GIna, are these good cold? I’m thinking of preparing ahead of time and taking them to a party.

  15. Sorry in advance if this is an obvious question- !  Is the minced bacon raw or cooked when put in meatballs 

  16. Hi Gina, just want to be clear, combine the first 6 ingredients (beef thru salt & pepper) and form into balls? Also, can i bake the meatballs? I’m thinking 15 min at 350?

    • Correct beef, bacon, mustard, salt, onion powder and pepper. Make them in balls and flatten like a burger. I think baking might cause some splatter but you can try!

  17. Gina, do all the recipes in your latest cookbook have WW Smartpoints? Or do I have to calculate each one?

  18. Hi Gina, Is the bacon layered on the skewer?  Or part of ground beef patty?  Thank you!  Looks great 

  19. So this may be a lame question but does the bacon go into the burger with the seasonings? How many patties should this make? I feel like we are missing a direction section here? Sorry for the questions!

  20. Hi Gina,

    How do you incorporate the bacon? Are some of the directions missing? 

    Thanks!

  21. The instructions are a little vague. Do you mix the bacon & prepared mustard in with the raw meat & spices?

  22. These have my taste buds TURNED ON hardcore! OMG they look amazing and so so so easy! I am moving in with my husband in two weeks and we plan on having a house warming party – THESE will be served! 🙂

  23. Looks so yummy! 🙂

    • Great heavy appetizer. Made with ground chicken breast, even my husband enjoyed them. Making with ground beef tonight for a party.
