Buffalo Turkey Meatballs

I'm always looking for new ways to "re-create" delicious foods that aren't necessarily the healthiest options. These buffalo turkey meatballs are perfect on those nights you just want to dig into some wings drenched in ranch.  With only 200 calories and 29 grams of protein, this is a perfect lunch or snack to satisfy any wing lovers craving.


  •  1 Tbsp Parmesan Cheese (Grated)
  •  1/2 tbsp Butter
  •  1 tsp Garlic Powder
  •  1 dash Black Pepper
  •  1/4 tsp Salt
  •  1 tbsp Parsley
  •  2 tsp. Frank's Red Hot Sauce
  •  4 oz. Extra Lean Ground Turkey Breast


Preheat oven to 350 degrees. In a bowl, mix 4 oz. extra lean ground turkey, 1 tablespoon grated parmesan cheese, 1 teaspoon garlic powder, 1/4 teaspoon salt, pinch of pepper, and 1 tablespoon of fresh parsley. Roll into small meatballs (you'll get about 8) .Place on a greased baking sheet and bake for 12 minutes. In a small bowl combine 2 teaspoons of your favorite hot sauce and 1/2 tablespoon of melted butter. Coat cooked meatballs in the sauce and place back onto the baking sheet. Bake another 5 minutes. Cool and serve with light ranch. 

Serves: 1
