I Heart Buffalo


My love of buffalo sauce knows no bounds. Other than wine, caffeine and sushi, it's been what I've been craving most. I've found a few (two are pretty similar) protein recipes that you can add to your lineup*!




Buffalo Turkey Meatballs

Ingredients:

  • 1 package (16 - 20oz) lean ground turkey breast
  • 1/4 cup bread crumbs (I use these
  • 1 whole egg
  • 1 tsp garlic powder
  • 1 cup Frank's Buffalo Sauce 
  • Coconut or EVOO
Instructions:
  • Place turkey, egg, garlic powder and bread crumbs in a large bowl and mix well
  • Put oil in skillet and heat
  • Form meatballs (I used 20oz of turkey and I yielded 12 meatballs) and put in skillet
  • Get a good sear/brown on each side
  • When mostly cooked, throw in your buffalo sauce 
  • I then placed them in a 350 degree oven for 6 minutes because I'm really weird about poultry being done enough, but you can cook them to entirety in the skillet, if you wish
These were a BIG hit! 

Later in the week, this happened...


This one is so, so easy. You literally cut up some chicken breasts, thrown in a pan, cook a little bit, throw in some Frank's, finish cooking and voila, done! I threw on a bed of romaine and drizzled with Bolthouse Ranch.

Next up was a one-pot meal, which I'm a big fan of but, this one was a little more labor intensive than I like, it was delicious though!

Now, go get your buffalo on*!

  1. We make buffalo caesar salads all the time. Love!! Will have to try the meatballs as I can no longer eat tomatoes, so we haven't been making the traditional kind.

  2. My husband would really appreciate your recipes as he puts hot sauce, preferably Sriracha on everything!! I think I'll start with the salad. Thank you for sharing!!
