All that awesome zesty flavor minus the messy clean up!  Give them a try, you will be oh so happy you did!

You will need:

  • 1.25 lbs ground turkey or chicken (thigh meat works best)
  • 1/4 cup of onion
  • 1/4 cup carrot
  • 1 clove of garlic
  • 1 large egg beaten
  • 1/2 cup blue cheese
  • 1/4 cup buffalo sauce
  • 1/2 cup panko bread crumbs
  • salt and pepper

Finely chop the carrot and onion and sauté in olive oil with a dash of salt and pepper for about five minutes on medium heat.  Add chopped garlic to the pan and continue to cook for about 2 minutes and remove from heat.  Combine all ingredients in a large mixing bowl and mix well.  Cover the bowl and place in the fridge for at least an hour.  Once removed from the fridge, hand roll the meatballs into 1  to 1 and a half inch sized balls.  Place a large skillet over medium low heat, drizzle about a tablespoon of olive oil into the pan.  Cook meatballs for about 3 minutes on each side.  You want to make sure the meatballs caramelize and are browned.

Preheat oven to 375 degrees

Lightly grease a large roasting pan.  Transfer all your meatballs to the roasting pan.  Once all meatballs are browned and in the roasting pan, place in the oven and bake for 7 minutes.  Whip together the DIY ranch dressing and add in a few crumbles of blue cheese to serve along with your creation.  Perfect!

Serving suggestion:

  • Line up on a tray and place a toothpick in each one.  Offer carrot sticks and celery as well as your blue cheese ranch dipping sauce
  • Serve inside a wrap with avocado lettuce and tomato
  • Offer on top of a salad filled with crunchy romaine lettuce, avocado, tomato and carrot

Enjoy!
