These are some of the best meatballs that you will ever eat. Chock full of savory goodness courtesy of the usual suspects: onion, garlic, red chile flakes, and Parmesan cheese and a not-so-usual ingredient—bacon. I serve them at the restaurant simply in a bowl of port wine marinara sauce; not exactly your grandma’s recipe. You can use them for a meatball sandwich smothered with provolone or on a bed of perfectly cooked spaghetti.
