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.
