Buffalo Turkey Meatballs and Blue Cheese Yogurt Sauce

Trust me when I say you need to try these. They are so easy, cheap, healthy and delicious! Sometimes I omit the breadcrumbs to make this lower in carbs, but either way it's a great filling source of protein to have on the menu that everyone will love... from football games to weeknights. I suggest making the blue cheese sauce first so it has an hour or so to sit in the fridge.

Remember: these are rough measurements, do what feels right!
Meatballs:
1 lb ground turkey (or chicken)
1 egg
1/2 cup breadcrumbs
2 tablespoons crumbled blue cheese
1/4 cup Frank's red hot sauce (you can use whatever you prefer, I just think Frank's tastes the most like your traditional buffalo wing!)
1 tablespoon garlic powder

Preheat oven to 415 degrees. Mix all ingredients plus half the hot sauce together with your hands.




Form into meatballs by rolling a spoon full in between your palms. Place meatballs onto a greased baking sheet (foil lined for me of course, less clean up)! 


Pop in the oven for 20 ish minutes until cooked through and starting to brown on the outside. Remove from the oven, and drizzle with the rest of the hot sauce. 




Serve with Greek yogurt blue cheese sauce!

Blue Cheese sauce:

1 cup plain Greek yogurt
2-3 tablespoons crumbled blue cheese
1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
1 teaspoon onion powder
1 teaspoon garlic powder

Mix ingredients together with salt and pepper to taste. Thin with a little bit of water or milk until desired consistency is attained. Allow time to sit in the fridge for flavors to mix before serving with buffalo chicken meatballs.
