I also couldn’t find ground chicken at my grocery store (Limited shopping is a disadvantage of living in a small town.), so I substituted turkey. To be honest, when it’s ground up and covered in buffalo sauce, I’m not sure I could tell the difference. You can use whatever you’d like.

I doubled this recipe and I’m so glad I did. These are incredibly delicious meat balls They have a nice spicy-kick to them as well, so be warned.

This recipe may also be somewhat healthier due to the lean meat and egg white instead of a whole egg. (To cut even more calories and fat, you could use less butter in the final steps.)

Ingredients

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. With a fork, stir together turkey, onion, garlic, egg white, bread crumbs, and ranch dip mix in a large bowl. Mix until just combined. This recipe will make 16 meatballs. Divide mixture into quarters, then make each quarter into 4 balls.
  • Press a cube of blue cheese into the center of each ball then form the mixture around cheese to seal. Roll into a ball.
  • Place meatballs on a non-stick sprayed cooling rack set on top of a baking sheet and then bake for 16-18 minutes or until cooked through.
  • Meanwhile, melt butter in a large skillet over medium heat. Then add buffalo wing sauce and stir to combine. Add cooked meatballs to skillet using a spoon to coat them with sauce. Place a lid on the skillet and turn heat to low to keep the meatballs warm.
  • Alternatively, you can finish the meatballs in a slow cooker like I did. Simply put the butter, buffalo wing sauce, and meatballs into a slow cooker and set on high for about 20 minutes or until warm.
