Bacon-Wrapped Meatballs with Tahini Sauce


Some days I just have bacon on my brain, so I make things with bacon. Like this. Packed full of flavor and wrapped in crispy strips of bacon, these meatballs are a winner.

   Curry has always been a very comforting and relaxing spice for me, so these meatballs are perfect for a cozy winter night. They’ve got bacon and curry, which is awesome already, but I kicked it up a notch and added tahini to the sauce. In my book, these meatballs are everything, but I prefer tahini to peanut butter so of course I think they’re amazing.

   I made my own tahini, which is quite simple. Toast your sesame seeds in a dry skillet until golden brown, and blend up with a little oil until creamy. I did about two cups of sesame seeds and one-third cup oil. Just keep adding oil until you have the right consistency. It doesn’t take that much tahini for this recipe, but I may be working on a tahini icecream…so stay tuned! Here ya go, the recipe to amazingness.
