Spice up your ground beef

Mix ground beef and magic dust spice. Mix well to ensure that the beef is spiced consistently to prevent spice lumps.



Prepare Ground Beef Filling

Now to the filling of your bacon bombs. Wash the jalapenos and dice them, cut the cheddar into 2.5 in long and 0.5 in wide strips. Set cheese and jalapenos aside for next step.


Bacon Bomb assembly

Partition your ground beef mix into 6 equally sized portions. Press portions into 0.5 in thick squares (4-4.5 in wide and long). Top up with 2-3 cheddar strips and diced jalapeno. Now role up the bed of beef, cheese and jalapenos and form to a patty. Make sure that the beef forms a tight envelope around the cheese and jalapenos to avoid cheese from oozing out during the grilling process. Now wrap bacon strips around the beef patty. Make sure that the entire patty is covered with bacon.
