Okay...these were delicious. I made them cocktail size, baked them, put them in the sauce and froze for a week. The night before our get together I took them out and let them defrost slowly. Put in a crockpot the day of the party on warm and they were perfect all day. I served with my secret homemade Blue Cheese Dressing. They were a hit. I have now had 3 requests to make these. New Years Eve to be the first. BTW...I did add one egg. Thanks for posting the recipe Paula.

Just as good as you would think they are! I added 1 chicken stock cube, crumbled, to the meatballs and actually fried them in a frying pan and added butter and wing sauce to glaze. Every bit as good as buffalo wings, without the messy bones to worry about.

Nice twist....so like Rachael to put a spin on the usual. After reading all the reviews, I add the following notes to my(buffalo meatball)recipe box 1) add 1 egg plus add 1/4 to1/2 C. breadcrumbs. 2) Cook on a rack, so meatballs do not sit in grease & gunk. 3) sometimes add a few tablespoons cheese...usually cheddar, . Then I add 3) twists of my own. 1) ADD a few dots of Franks original hot sauce right into the meat mixture....not too much...still experimenting w/ amount ( not a fan of HOT). 2) double the sauce BUT NOT the butter. I toss the meatballs in most of it but save some extra for the side 3) I plan to experiment by making /serving a 2nd batch @ the same time using Franks SWEET CHILLI sauce OR maybe blend of the 2. BUT this recipe is great as is too. If I do not have ground meat on hand I have shredded up left over roasted chicken or rotisserie chicken, and tossed with Franks Hot sauce, then served them as sliders, and a mayo blue cheese spread on the side

These were delicious! I've made them at least 10 times since first makign them for all kinds of events - casual get togeterhs at the boat dock and football parties - each time - a success! Extremely easy to prep and assemble (I cheat and use a cookie dough scoop) and my hubby loves them. I also added the egg and bread crumbs, drained the grated onion before adding and drizzled with the olive oil (although not necessary - I liked the color). A great fun dinner or appetizer when we were short of time... Thanks! Have also tried with a BBQ sauce for those sentistive to spicy heat and turned out well!

Easy to put together and generally pleasing. I too made these with turkey and combined everything together using the food processor.

My husband and I think Rachael misses as many as she hits, but these were really good. We both love buffalo wings and these were nice for a change of pace. They would be fun to serve at a party as well, instead of your normal cocktail meatballs or chicken wings. Great recipe. Thanks for posting.

Awesome meatballs! I made them for a party........there were none left and several requests for the recipe. I did add breadcrumbs and an egg (I always add them to my meatballs). I also added some shredded cheese which was a great addition. These will be going to more parties very soon! Great Recipe!!

My husband told me that these should go on our regular rotation, that's how good they were! The onions added great flavor and texture. I also added breadcrumbs and an egg since I was worried about them binding together properly...turned out great! We made "buffalo chicken meatball sandwiches" on potato bread with blue cheese dressing...YUMMY! Thanks for sharing a great recipe.
