buffalo turkey balls
º. Then, finely mince a small onion (we use Vidailas, since Vidalia, Georgia is so nearby) and 2 ribs of celery. Then add 1 egg, a palm full of breadcrumbs, and mix until combined.
Next, using a basting brush (or spoon) baste the meatballs with the sauce. Or, if you're lazy like me, pour the hot sauce over the meatballs and continue cooking for 10 minutes more. Total cook time should be right around 25- 30 minutes. This will depend on the size of your meatballs more than anything.
Buffalo Turkey Meatballs
1 lb ground turkey
2 ribs celery
1 small onion
Palm full bread crumbs
2 oz. softened low fat cream cheese
Palm full low fat blue cheese crumbles
1/2 stick butter
8 oz. hot sauce (we use Frank's)
Preheat oven to 350º. Then, finely mince onion and celery and combine with egg, bread crumbs, blue cheese crumbles, softened cream cheese and ground turkey. Form into 1 inch balls and place on greased cooking tray. Cook for 15 minutes. While turkey balls are cooking, melt butter and hot sauce together in a small cooking pot. When balls are firm to the touch, baste (or pour) hot sauce mixture over them and continue cooking for 10-15 minutes until cooked through. Serve with drizzle of ranch dressing.
