Buffalo Turkey Meatballs are a perfect appetizer for the Big Game.  They're also a lighter alternative to a traditional chicken buffalo wings, not only because they have less fat, but also because they're baked, not fried. Not to mention they're also super easy to make.

  • 1 cup Panko Breadcrumbs
  • 1/3 cup Parmesan Cheese
  • 1 Egg
  • 1/4 Large Onion Grated or 1/2 small one

  • Prepare the baking sheet with a rack and spray it generously with cooking spray;
  • Using a tablespoon, scoop out the meat and create little meatballs - keep your hands wet for easy rolling;
  • Place the meatballs onto your rack and either spray them with cooking spray, or brush them with some olive oil (you should have approx. 25-26 meatballs);
  • Bake the meatballs in the oven for 25 minutes;
  • In the meantime, melt the butter in a frying pan and add hot sauce (mix well);

  • Serve your buffalo turkey meatballs with a side of blue cheese dressing and cut up celery and carrot sticks. Enjoy!
