I like to dunk these appetizer meatballs in blue cheese or ranch salad dressing. If I make them for a meal, I often skip the dressing and serve with blue cheese polenta on the side. —Amber Massey, Argyle, Texas

"These were fantastic. The celery added a nice crunch and texture. I used chipotle hot sauce and served with blue cheese and ranch dressing. These make a great sandwich too. Thank you! I love simple and quick and delicious recipes. A keeper!"

"Very good, but to make them taste more like real wings I add some butter to hot sauce for coating"

"So quick and easy! We served with an iceberg lettuce salad. I didn't add extra hot sauce at the end and they weren't too spicy for my son. Will definitely make again."
