We go through quite a bit of buffalo sauce in my house, is it the same in yours?
Everyone seems to LOVE buffalo chicken wings. For this recipe use your favorite buffalo sauce, we like Franks Buffalo Sauce, it’s readily available in grocery stores.
There are a few great things about these meatballs, one is when you eat them your hands don’t have to get all sticky and messy as you can eat them with a fork. There are no bones to deal with which means…
you can spend more time eating and less time fussing…
isn’t that GREAT NEWS!
These are great served over noodles or rice, and fun on a salad or simply served over a bed of cabbage for some crunch and also so they don’t go rolling off your plate!
My kids love them drizzled with ranch, me I’m more of a blue cheese person.
You may want to double the recipe as BELIEVE me these will be devoured!
