"Buffalo Balls"

"Buffalo Balls"

I forget how many this makes.

A recipe you could use for dinner or as an appetizer at your next party.

For the meatballs:1lb ground chicken or turkey2 oz cream cheese, softened2 eggs2 Tbl chopped celery3 Tbl crumbled blue cheese1/2 tsp black pepper

For the sauce:1/2 cup Frank's Red Hot1/2 stick (4 oz) unsalted butter

Combine all of the meatball ingredients in a medium bowl. Don't add salt because The Frank's is super salty as is the blue cheese so trust me you don't need to add more.   Form into balls and place them on a greased cookie sheet (with sides) and bake at 350 degrees (F) for 10 minutes.  

Meanwhile, combine the Frank's and butter in a small saucepan on medium heat, or place in a microwave safe bowl for 2 minutes on high.  After 10 minutes, remove balls from oven and dunk carefully (they are tender from the cream cheese and could fall apart if you are too rough) in the buffalo sauce.  ***I used a basting brush for this step.  

Put back onto the cookie sheet and bake for another 13 minutes.  If you have leftover sauce you could pour it over the meatballs and bake for another 3 to 5 minutes if you want them really saucy. Serve with celery stick.
