Taste5 Bomba Bacon-Burger Bombs
What could be better than a bacon burger on a stick? Kids of all ages love to help roll them up, the only downside is having to wait for them cook in the oven! These are great for cocktail parties!

Serves 6

INGREDIENTS

for the burger bombs

12 slices of unsmoked streaky bacon either whole rasher or cut into squares
12 meatballs, I like to use beef but lamb or pork would work well too
Taste5 Umami Bomb Tomato paste
2 cups grated cheddar or even easier - cut burger cheese into bite size squares

for the dip

1 tablespoon tomato ketchup
1 tablespoon mayonnaise
½ tablespoon Taste5 Umami Bomb Tomato paste

METHOD

Preheat oven to 400°F.

First make the dip by mixing all the ingredients together. Cover and chill.

Lay out 12 slices of streaky bacon and at the top of each lay a meatball.

Down the rest of the bacon, squeeze out some Taste5 Umami Bomb Tomato paste then sprinkle over the cheese.

Roll each bomb up in the bacon and secure with a cocktail stick.

Place them all on a baking sheet and bake for 25-30 minutes until the bacon is crisp and the cheese is oozing.

Note: You can make this less rich by using just a little square of burger cheese and a little square of bacon.  Simply top the burger with a good squeeze of Taste5 Umami Bomb Tomato paste, top with a square of cheese and a square of bacon.  Run a cocktail stick through the whole lot and place on a baking tray.
