For those of you who do not know what “man food” is let me try to supply you with this definition, ” Man food is a collection of food that usually has no healthy content and can be ready within 30 minutes or less. It usually consists of two or more processed ingredients and results in something greasy, cheesy, or creamy. “Man I love me some ‘man food.'” It is also the perfect season for man food. Of course we all know why…football season! There is usually some sort of fried chicken wings, Loaded Baked Potato Skins, dip, or Cheeseburger Casserole that takes center stage on the coffee table. Well go ahead and make room for these bad boys.
How to Make Buffalo Chicken Balls
Prep – Preheat oven to 450ºF.
Create the chicken ball mixture – For the chicken balls, melt the butter and hot sauce in small sauce pan and set aside. Combine ground chicken, large egg, minced celery, onion, bread crumbs, blue cheese (optional), and salt and pepper.
Cook in sauce mixture – Use hands to combine all ingredients and pour in the hot sauce mixture. Use a wooden spoon to stir in the hot sauce mixture. Allow to sit for about 5 minutes so the hot sauce mixture can get absorbed in the meat.
Prepare the baking sheet – Take a baking sheet and pour the vegetable oil on top. Make sure that oil is spread evenly on the baking sheet.
Form the meatballs – Begin to take the meatball mixture and roll into meatballs the size that you would like them. Place them on the baking sheet touching one another.
Cook – Roast for 15 to 20 minutes or until buffalo chicken balls are firm and cooked thoroughly. Once finished, set aside.
