These bombs are great for a grab 'n go breakfast or for a side to eggs, hash browns, pancakes, french toast, or waffles. They can easily be air fried instead of pan fried.

  • Transfer to a bowl and add bread cubes, Cheddar cheese, egg, salt, garlic powder, and black pepper. Roll mixture into 8 equal-sized balls and wrap each ball in a slice of bacon. Use toothpicks to hold bacon in place.

  • Wipe the skillet clean. Melt bacon drippings over medium heat. Fry bacon balls in the skillet, rolling constantly until crisp, 15 to 18 minutes.

Cook's Notes:

I used stale white sandwich bread but you could substitute whole wheat bread.

You can use oil in place of bacon grease.

I used a mexican 3 cheese blend of cheese and also added chives & used sourdough bread which I put in the oven to dry out a bit and worked perfect. no oil or grease needed since the bacon fat creates the needed fat for cooking on its own. Loved this recipe. Served as an appetizer for mothers day lunch. Read More
