Wednesday: Meatballs wrapped in lettuce

For want of a better word, we'll call this improvisation : Meatballs wrapped in lettuce.

Brown about 100g bacon (diced small) and drain off the fat. In a big bowl mix together 300g ground beef, 4 cloves minced garlic, 1/2 of a minced red onion, an egg, salt, pepper, and marjoram. Mix in the bacon and then form into 3-4 cm balls. Wrap the meatballs with lettuce leaves and put them in an oiled baking dish. Pour in some white wine and a bit of beef bouillon. Grate some Sbrinz over the top. Bake at 180c for about 30 minutes.

We ate these lovely things with some basmati rice and a big green salad.
