I was feeling creative this weekend and I wanted to come up with a new recipe that would be good to serve while watching football. I’ve had meatballs on the brain lately and whenever I think of football I think of Buffalo chicken, so I decided to combine the two. I always make meatballs in the crockpot, and I figure pouring a bottle of wing sauce over these would keep them moist and help them suck up the Buffalo flavor. The meatballs are a mixture of everything you’d find on a plate of wings: chicken, carrots, celery and blue cheese. I thought they featured those flavors really well and were a perfect warm, hearty dish for cheering on your team from the couch.
I served these a la carte with a dish of light blue cheese dressing for drizzling and they went over really well. I think they’d also be great on a sub or served over pasta with some blue cheese dressing or light alfredo mixed in. Get creative and let me know how you serve them!
