There are few things in this world I love more than buffalo chicken and blue (bleu?) cheese. If I honestly sat down and made it list of my favorite things, buffalo chicken would fall somewhere between 80’s music and kayaking. On the other hand.. one of my least favorite things is having buffalo sauce (or any food particles) smeared across my face, this may not be an issue for the majority of the population but I’m a messy eater. I’ve ruined countless t-shirts and on one particular instance even had buffalo sauce in my hair… don’t ask.
Anyways, these buffalo meatballs pack all the flavor or wings, but it saves me from having to put down a drop cloth and strap on a bib before dinner.
If your local grocer store sells ground chicken in their meat department it can save you a lot of time and effort than grinding your own. The last time I made these, I had to grind the chicken in a vitamix and while it was effective, it was also one of the most aggravating things to clean. Oh and easy to clean up meals are also on my favorite things list, just below Jurassic Park (the original, not the sequels). This really is one of the easiest and most delicious recipes on CastIronKeto.net. The deliciousness to effort ratio is right where I like it for a quick and easy weeknight meal the whole family will love.
Blue cheese can be somewhat polarizing because of it’s general funkiness, but to me to the crown jewel of buffalo chicken meals. I talked a lot about the surprising health benefits of blue cheese in my keto chicken wings post, here is an excerpt:
“Blue cheese is a good source of protein, potassium, and calcium, but it’s the moldy blue veins that run through it that really pack a healthy punch. Those veins are where you’ll find the probiotics that help break down food in your body and support a healthy digestive tract. Studies have also shown blue cheese to have anti-inflammatory and immune boosting effects.”
