Man, I wish I had tried these Buffalo Chicken Meatballs during Football season! They are so tasty just by themselves, so they would be perfect for a football tailgate. I guess there is always the backyard cookouts this spring and summer!

If you like buffalo wings or just a little kick in your meal, then these are for you. I used a basic meatball recipe with just a few twists to make them into buffalo chicken meatballs.

Tips for meatball making:

  • Use a metal cooling rack on top of a baking sheet to cook the meatballs. This will let the greasy drippings fall through the rack and you end up with leaner, better tasting meatballs.

 

  • Use a food processor to finely dice the vegetables. You can add the veggies right into the meatballs which is great if you can’t get your little ones (or husbands) to eat their veggies. 🙂
