Put some heat into those balls; that’s the way she loves it! These beef burger balls wrapped in bacon are given a traditional meatloaf treatment by being cooked over low heat for a long time before being served with a layer of marinara sauce and melted cheese on top. In addition, as shown by the BBQ Pit Boys, grilling is a really simple process.
