    1/2 red bell pepper , chopped
    1 medium tomato , chopped
    1 La Fe Sazon Packet

Directions

  • STEP ONE
    Begin by preheating the oven to 350ºF.

  • STEP TWO
    Mince the onion and garlic using a food processor until the mixture becomes a coarse paste. Remove the mixture from the food processor and mix in the salt & oregano.

  • STEP THREE
    After you have made the mixture, chop up 1/4 lb of bacon and add it into the onion mixture.

  • STEP FOUR
    Now, add the onion mixture and tomato sauce to the minced beef. Knead the beef mixture with your hands to mix thoroughly (remember to wash your hands carefully before and after).

  • STEP FIVE
    Following this, mix in the egg, parsley, bell pepper, La Fe Sazon and tomato.

  • STEP SIX
    Now, spread the bacon on a medium baking mold. Place the beef mixture on top and form a long meatball, roughly the size of 6” long. Wrap the meatball with the bacon, making sure the slices of bacon overlap.

  • STEP SEVEN
    Following this, cover tightly with aluminum foil and cook in the oven for approximately 25 mins. Remove from the oven and discard the aluminum foil.

  • STEP EIGHT
    Now, increase the heat of your oven to 450ºF and return the loaf to the oven. Cook for another ten minutes, or until the bacon turns golden brown.

  • STEP NINE
    Serve with Fried La Fe Yuca!
