11-20 Minutes


  • 8 slices Sara Lee® Artesano™ Bread, toasted

  1. 1. Cube each toasted bread slice into 6 pieces and set aside. Preheat oven to 350°F.
  2. 2. In a medium pan over medium heat, cook bacon. Transfer to a paper-towel-lined plate and pat dry. When cool, cut each bacon strip into 3 equal pieces. Set aside.
  3. 3. In a large bowl, combine ground beef, salt, pepper, egg, green onion, garlic, milk and Worcestershire sauce. Mix well and divide into 24 meatballs.
