Bacon Jam Meatballs in Brodo

Bacon Jam Meatballs in Brodo

I made bacon jam several days ago for the first time and fell in love.  It is wonderful slightly heated and served with scrambled eggs in the morning; however, as it was cooking, I had a thought that it would make a great meatball ingredient.  When I lived in Naples, Italy they had a dish called Tortellini in Brodo (tortellini in broth).  So, I thought that these meatballs would make a good substitution and I was right…especially with the fresh, chopped basil leaves sprinkled on top.
