This dinner is in bacon overload and can be appreciated by bacon fanatics everywhere, making it perfect for the bacon-loving dad in your life. Flavorful beefy meatballs, tender green beans and juicy pineapple, all wrapped in bacon and roasted in the oven until the bacon is nice and crispy. Just make sure to cook plenty so Dad will be willing to share!
The first course is bacon-wrapped meatballs, so start by combining the meatball ingredients and forming them into balls about 1-1/2 inches in diameter.
Cut your slices of bacon in half, wrap 1/2 a slice around each meatball, and then place the meatballs seam side down on a foil-lined cookie sheet.
Bake the meatballs, and if the bacon doesn't get crispy, then turn the oven to broil for another 5 minutes or so until the bacon crisps up.
For the green beans, cut your bacon slices into 3 pieces, and wrap 1 piece around a frozen green bean. Make sure to use frozen beans, as they are less likely to burn while the bacon cooks.
For the bacon-wrapped pineapple, use 1/2 a fresh pineapple, and cut it into about 24 chunks. Canned pineapple can get mushy during the cooking.
Again, slice the bacon into 3 pieces, and wrap a piece around each pineapple chunk. I try to make sure one end sticks out a little bit so that the pineapple is visible.
You can serve each course individually or pile all three on a plate for Dad. We like to use barbecue sauce for dipping the meatballs and ranch dressing for dipping the green beans.
