These are like buffalo chicken wings.. without the calories.

Or at least that’s what I heard. They have GOT to be less than restaurant chicken wings, right???

So the buffalo chicken obsession is back in full swing. Or it never left/ended. I still want to drink buffalo chicken sauce every bit as much as the day I discovered it. It’s OMG good.

These totally should have been made during football season, but whatever. They were a yummy snack for a night when it was too damn hot to eat outside, actually. It gets that hot in Ottawa! It’s uncomfortable. Sometimes, at least.

Anyway, these hit the spot. They’re perfect little turkey meatballs with crumbles of blue cheese inside (don’t worry, blue cheese haters! You can barely taste it!). And then basted repeatedly in buffalo sauce, obviously.Buffalo Turkey Balls
