Turkey Buffalo Balls

Well, these are genius. The Buffalo Chicken Dip is always a staple for gatherings, but for the Super Bowl this year (yes, I am a bit behind) I wanted to spice things up.  These were AWESOME & a huge hit, despite being a healthier alternative to wings. It might have had something to do with the insides being infused with a bleu cheese/cream cheese mixture.

I had every intention of making these tasty treats with ground chicken, until I couldn't find it at the grocery store.  The ground turkey though was a perfectly acceptable substitution.  Kudos to Mellissa at I Breathe I'm Hungry for the awesome recipe. I will definitely make these again!

Turkey Buffalo Balls
Serves: 32 balls
Cook Time according to me: 35-40 mins
How difficult was this for me? Pretty easy!

2 lbs ground turkey or chicken
4 oz cream cheese, softened
4 eggs
6 tbsp crumbled bleu cheese
1 tsp black pepper 
8 oz butter, melted
1 cup buffalo sauce
Bleu Cheese Salad Dressing (for dipping)


Pre-heat oven to 350 degrees 

In a large mixing bowl, combine ground meat, cream cheese, egg, bleu cheese & pepper.

The mix will be sticky & gooey, but that's normal.  Take mixture & roll into 1.2-2 inch balls. 

Place on tinfoil-lined greased baking sheets
Bake for 10 mins & remove from heat but leave oven on.
In a mixing bowl, combine butter & buffalo sauce.
Carefully place each ball in the sauce & cover completely. Place back on baking sheet.
Place back in oven & bake an additional 12 mins.
Remove from heat & serve! Enjoy!!
