"A snap to make; a breeze to freeze, packed with flavor and pure lean protein. Ideal for meals, appetizers or snacks." per Carmen Creek Gourmet Meats. This recipe is from the Carmen Creek recipe card I picked up at the Wholefoods Market. I have not made these but have had buffalo at Wholefoods and it was very good and savory. Would be a nice appetizer to have at a party to offer guests something new to try. It does not give the recipe for a glaze or sauce but you could probably look at Carmen Creek website for ideas, or just serve on their own.
- 2 lbs ground buffalo meat
- 2 eggs, slightly beaten
- 1 cup shredded mozzarella cheese or 1 cup gorgonzola
- 1⁄2 cup dry breadcrumbs
- 1⁄4 cup chopped onion
- 2 tablespoons grated parmesan cheese
- 1 tablespoon ketchup
- 2 teaspoons Worcestershire sauce
- 1 teaspoon italian seasoning
- 1 teaspoon dried basil
- 1⁄2 teaspoon pepper
- combine all ingredients.
- shape into 1 inch balls.
- place in single layer on a cookie sheet
- bake at 350' for 10-15 min or till cooked through.
- Drain and let stand.
Since I could not find buffalo anywhere. I combined 1 1/2 lbs 80/20 ground beef and 12 oz hot Gwaltney bulk sausage. I also added 1/2 tea of Ted's Montana Grill seasoning but the rest remained the same. This turned out to be a great meatball w/ lots of flavor. I know this is not a Buffalo meatball and maybe I should not have reviewed but it was soooo good, I just had to report my findings. ( Ted's can be found on the internet) and I use it on all things meat. It is the bomb!!!!!!!!!!!
