Reviews forBuffalo Chicken Meatballs
"Yum. I doubled it, used whole egg. Then made the real buffalo sauce with butter and vinegar to toss them in. Addictive, but not as healthy. Would be good even without hot sauce , or served on the side at a party for those who don’t like the heat."
"Tasty recipe, read reviews and added only 1/3 c breadcrumbs. Please get more realistic when it comes to cost per serving: $0.02 is not even remotely possible! Thanks!"
"Thanks so much I can't wait to try them out for a baby shower Saturday . Teresa c p.s thinking about trying it with ground turkey as well two different ones for the party"
"Interesting, I've never used ground chicken, so this is TOTALLY interesting."
"I loved this recipe! They where a little dry so next time I make them I will use less bread crumbs. I servecd with ranch dressing for dipping."
"Very good, but to make them taste more like real wings I add some butter to hot sauce for coating"
"We really liked these meatballs! Seemed much healthier than wings. Easier to eat too!"
