Let’s all just agree that the best part of going to holiday parties is the appetizers. I mean is there really anything better than getting perfectly portioned bites of delicious food? Today I’m sharing with you a spicy, cheesy, meaty appetizer that will thrill your guests, Buffalo Chicken and Blue Cheese Stuffed Meatballs.
These delicious meatballs have so many good things going for them that I’m not sure where to start. Let’s start with the buffalo sauce. If you love wings then you are guaranteed to love these meatballs. They have just the right amount of heat and sauciness. I actually prefer these meatballs over wings for a couple reasons. First, they are so much healthier which means, at the end of the night when you realized you ate 5 of the meatballs you don’t have to feel guilty. The buffalo chicken meatballs are made with lean ground chicken or turkey, green onion, spices, an egg and panko to bind them together and keep the meatballs moist. The other reason I love these more than chicken wings is that they are a lot less messy to eat. Seriously, do you really want to have wing sauce covering your face and hands at your holiday party? I didn’t think so.
Moving on to what really sets this buffalo chicken meatball apart from the rest, it’s stuffed with blue cheese! Blue cheese and buffalo sauce are made for each other. If you’ve never tried the two together it’s a must. Aside from dessert, nothing gets me more excited than a piece of cheese stuffed in a meatball. I love the way it melts in the meat and gives you that perfect gooey bite!
To finish off these perfect Buffalo Chicken and Blue Cheese Stuffed Meatballs I made a blue cheese dipping sauce. Oh now you’re excited! Who doesn’t get excited when they see dip?! Dip to a meatball, or chip, or whatever, is the equivalent to frosting on a cupcake, one without the other isn’t complete. Not only is this dip creamy and delicious, but it also cuts the heat of the buffalo sauce.
Hopefully by now I’ve convinced you that you need to make these Buffalo Chicken and Blue Cheese Stuffed Meatballs! I promise your guests will gobble up these moist, cheesy, bite sized meatballs and be begging you for more!
