This is one of two Superbowl recipes I have for you before the BIG DAY! They both involve hot sauce and in ways are similar but, they are also two different creations.
Instead of messy wings, that consist of orange hands, an orange face and 2,000 used napkins in the trash, these are buffalo balls. You can just have fun saying the name alone, I know I do 😉
Are you going to a Superbowl party this year and if so what are you making? If you would like to share a link to a recipe in the comments, feel free to do so! I would love to see what you’re making!
Onto the balls…
1.25 lb. package of ground chicken or turkey (I used turkey)
2 oz. softened cream cheese
3 T. crumbled blue cheese
1/2 t. ground black pepper
1/2 stick unsalted butter
1/2 c. Frank’s Red Hot Sauce
Combine all of the meatball ingredients into a large bowl. No need to add salt as the hot sauce and blue cheese provide plenty of salt. The mix will be sticky. If you wet your hands, it’s much easier to make the balls without them sticking to you. (What kind of blog is this anyways!? 😉 )Form into 1 inch balls and place on a greased cookie sheet. Bake at 350 degrees for 10 minutes.
Evenly coat them and put them back onto the cookie sheet and bake for an additional 12-15 minutes. If you have extra sauce you can pour it over the meatballs if you like the additional heat ( I do!!).
Yield: This made 44 meatballs. I doubled the sauce (only) recipe and it was perfect!!

I would also like to thank Veronica for my awesome new header…you rock girl!! xoxo
Have a great weekend y’all!
