Making Spicy Buffalo Meatballs

When I make Spicy Buffalo Meatballs, I start with ground turkey.  The flavor is mild and takes well to the flavor of the sauce.  Ground turkey has also tended to be less expensive than beef of late, and so has become a great choice as a substitute.  The meatballs for Spicy Buffalo Meatballs are simple.  Eggs, breadcrumbs, salt, and pepper are the only ingredients in the balls themselves.  This makes them perfect not only for the Buffalo wing sauce, but also for any other sauce you love, like barbecue, teriyaki, or you could even use cream of mushroom soup for a Swedish style meatball.  For the Spicy Buffalo Meatballs, I use Sweet Baby Ray’s Buffalo Wing Sauce.  It’s spicy, with a perfect flavor that really adds to the dish.
