Ingredients

For the Meatballs:
1 lb ground beef (I like 80/20 for these)
1 egg
1/4 cup almond flour
3/4 tsp salt
1/4 tsp ground black pepper
1/2 tsp garlic powder
1/4 cup chopped raw bacon (from the fatty ends)
bacon fat to cook the meatballs in
For the Sauce:
1/4 cup mayonnaise
1 Tbsp sugar free (or low sugar) ketchup
1 tsp dijon mustard
1 Tbsp dill pickle juice (or dill pickle relish if you prefer chunks)
To Serve:
3 oz cheddar (or other) cheese
4 cups iceberg lettuce, shredded
3 slices of bacon, cooked and broken into 12 pieces
Make a Bacon & Cheese Hash Brown Quiche

Instructions

Combine all of the meatball ingredients in a medium bowl and mix thoroughly. Form into 12 meatballs. Fry in a non-stick pan in the reserved bacon fat (or use the oil of your choice) for about 4 minutes for the first side. Turn them over and top each with a slice of cheese. Cook for another 4 minutes, or until done to your liking. Remove from the heat, and top each meatball with a piece of bacon.
For the Sauce:
Combine all of the sauce ingredients in a small bowl and whisk together until smooth.
To Serve:
Place 1 cup of shredded iceburg lettuce on a plate. Top with 3 meatballs and drizzle with about 1 1/2 Tablespoons of sauce.

REMEMBER!! WATCH YOUR PORTIONS! I have found that many do best when they control their portions rather than deny themselves food!
