Superbowl is coming up in a few days and like most of you, we’re having a few friends over. In the past, classic buffalo wings were a must at our parties, and they are still pretty awesome. But from a logistics point of view, they can be annoying – especially with a large crowd.
Chicken wings are incredibly messy for one thing, and it’s not easy to eat them gracefully. So if you are an unattached woman looking for the man of her dreams, gnawing and slavering over a saucy piece of chicken like a dog on a bone may not be the best game plan. And so there you are, staring longingly at them, but not partaking so you can look all graceful and demure and stuff.
But after a few drinks the three grapes you ate aren’t cutting it, so you cave and resort to sneaking them into the bathroom, where you can attack them in private and hide the bones in your purse.
Or if you are desperate and really, really brave, flushing them down the toilet and praying it doesn’t clog. Or maybe that’s just me…
Anyhoo, all you single ladies rejoice! Behold the buffalo ball – all of the flavors of a buffalo wing, in a low carb, easy to eat package. And they are super good! I may never make wings again!
Ok not really, but I’ll make them when nobody else is coming over, so I can ravage every last piece of meat off of them like a good wing deserves, without a mortified audience looking on in horror! I just giggled out loud picturing that…heh heh….
Anyway, these buffalo chicken meatballs have all the flavor of your favorite classic buffalo wings, with none of the bones, skin or mess.
If you’re like Mr. Hungry, this is a plus, because he doesn’t like the skin and hates eating chicken meat off of the bone!
If you’re a crockpot lover, you can totally form these and place them in the bottom of your crockpot, then pour the sauce over them and cook for about 3 hours on low – viola, buffalo chicken meatballs ready to go!
These have a subtle blue cheese flavor but I love the dressing so I added more and it was awesome! And of course, you must serve with celery sticks to be authentic!
