Lamb/Bacon Bites

These lamb and bacon bites are the absolute perfect appetizer for tailgating or ball games and family gatherings.  Quick and easy with ground lamb.  Make twice as many as you think you will need and you can thank me later.  For a simple meatball recipe this one is so good it could easily be a meal if you ate enough.  
The flavor of these are so good, you can take the same recipe and make lamb burgers with them and instead of wrapping with bacon, include real bacon bits in the ground mix when you make your patties!  
These also go great with a Tzatziki dipping sauce.  There are numerous flavor profiles on Tzatziki and you can even buy store bought now.  Here is one of my favorite recipes for Tzatziki sauce if you would like to make your own.
