Buffalo Turkey Meatballs

Happy Monday! I hope that everyone had a wonderful weekend. Did you do anything fun? Bryan worked on Saturday, so it was another normal day for us. We did manage to hit the mountain bike trail both days; B rode his bike, I ran. Normally 43* is about my cut-off for running outside. I sucked it up and ran with it 32* both days, which actually wasn't too bad.

Today I awoke to find snow on the ground! It is supposed to warm up and continue raining, so nothing too exciting.

On Friday, I got up early and made food for Bryan's office. They had decided on Thursday that they wanted a little something yummy and after I sent them a list of possibilities they chose buffalo-style turkey meatballs.

Buffalo Turkey Meatballs

1 pound ground turkey (or chicken)
2 cloves garlic, minced
3-4 tablespoons blue cheese
1 egg
1/4 cup Texas Pete buffalo sauce
3/4 cup bread crumbs

Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
Combine ingredients and shape into same sized balls. (About the size of a cookie scoop.)
Place on a baking dish. Roast for 15-20 minutes or until the temperature reads 165 degrees.
Top with additional hot sauce, ranch dressing, green onions.

*These would be great as an appetizer or as a main dish.
*After mine were cooked, I put them into a crockpot for B to take to work. I poured extra hot sauce, blue cheese and green onions on top. About an hour and a half before lunch they were turned on low.


On another note, I did not watch the Grammys last night, but after all of the controversy on Facebook this morning I looked up a few YouTube videos. I am completely and totally disgusted with Nicki Minaj. After her video I watched Adele. Her performance was one that showcases true talent, class and a winner.


  1. That recipe sounds amazing, I will have to try it for sure! And way to go on working out, I wish I could find the motivation to do so.

  2. Um buffalo meatballs, yes please! Those sound so good! I loved Adele, her voice is amazing!! Agree about Nikki she is disgusting!

  3. The Buffalo Turkey Meatballs sounds fabulous!! I cannot wait to try these. Thanks for sharing.

  4. Those meatballs sound amazing! I am definitely going to give that recipe a try. Thanks for sharing!

    Adele seriously has amazing talent. Everyone else lip syncs, yet hers showed that you can be amazing - no matter what you look like. I was so offended by the comment Karl Lagerfeld made about her having talent but being too fat. I am so glad she won all the awards that she did, and could shove it in everyone's face.

    Nicki Minaj was completely offensive and I thought that was ridiculous. She slapped her "fake pope" that she was walking with on the red carpet.


  5. I'm going to have to surprise Ian with that recipe - it seems right up his alley.

    I missed the Nicki Minaj performance, but maybe I'll have to check it out on You Tube later tonight. Doesn't sound like I missed out on anything good.

  6. Oooh I'm making these tonight! They sound delish!

  7. I was literally bouncing up and down with delight when Adele won her grammys--she is SO talented!!

  8. You are such a good wifey! Eric hints at me to make treats to take to work and share with everyone.... and I never do! Oopsie!
