Buffalo Chicken Meatballs

Right now I love anything spicy and blue cheese. I usually didn't like either of the two, but I guess your taste buds change and now I'm willing to eat it all the time. I know it's not good to, and I don't, but if I had the chance - Sure! A few weeks ago I made buffalo chicken mini meatloaf. I thought I could easily turn them into meatballs and it would be fantastic. I used the same recipe, added a different kind of cheese, and viola, the buffalo chicken meatball is born!

Buffalo Chicken Meatballs

1 lb ground chicken breast
1/2 C buffalo sauce (hot sauce and melted butter mixed together)
4 slices of blue jack cheese*, chopped, or 4 oz blue cheese crumbled
1 1/2 C cornbread stuffing, I use Mrs Cubbison's OR you can use bread crumbs
salt & pepper

*What is blue jack cheese? I find it at Trader Joe's and it is incredibly good.

To make the meatballs:

Mix all ingredients in a bowl.

Shape into balls with hands. Spray a baking sheet with cooking spray, arrange the meatballs on the tray and bake for 15-20 minutes. Serve with ranch, blue cheese, and celery - if desired.

They are also good the next day. I had them for lunch ;)
