These spicy bites have a surprise blue cheese center.
These meatballs are the perfect thing for your next get together. Why? Because they cover all the bases of what people like to eat at a party. They're meatballs, finger food, buffalo-flavored, stuffed, and everything is in one bite. Those are the 5 most looked for things in party food and this has ALL OF THEM.
The thing that makes these chicken meatballs unique is the blue cheese stuffing. This means you don’t need to worry about dipping anything, it's all self-contained. Be careful serving them too hot though, the cheese will burn!
First, mix all the meatball ingredients in a large bowl.
Crumble up your blue cheese into large chunks.
Grab some of your meatball mixture and spread it out in your hand. Then put a chunk of blue cheese into the meat mixture and wrap it around the cheese.
Once it's nice and sealed, put your meatball onto a baking sheet and repeat until they're all done. Then get the meatballs under the broiler to brown them up.
Meanwhile, build the sauce. Butter and sugar first, then cayenne sauce.
The meatballs are all browned and ready to be mixed into the sauce.
Simmer a little longer to help the sauce stick to the balls.
These have really spicy and pungent flavors – the perfect dish for watching the game or having some friends over.
Be careful though! That cheese inside is hot!
