Sip & Snack - Buffalo Style Meatballs & Beer Cocktail



Boneless buffalo wings are a favorite indulgence of mine. I love the combination of the spicy sauce along with the cooling blue cheese. I however do not enjoy the calories that the snack has in it. I always have tried different "buffalo style" recipes to mimic this famous dish without the guilt but this by far has to be the closest I can get to the real deal and what goes better with this snack then an ice cold brew-ski. Well my version is a little more feminine with extra lime flavor that I find uber refreshing with this hot dish. 


Ingredients

1 lb ground turkey {I used all white meat}
1 egg
1/2 cup bread crumbs
1/2 a finely minced onion
2 tablespoons buffalo wing sauce {I used Franks}
10 celery sticks
1/2 cup blue cheese dressing 
{my husband doesn't care for blue cheese so I do half ranch and half blue cheese}


Directions
Mix ground turkey, egg, bread crumbs & onion in a large bowl. Form into small round balls. Bake in preheated oven at 350 degrees for 25 minutes. When out of oven dunk the meatballs in the buffalo wing sauce & serve with celery & blue cheese. 

Lime - Beer Cocktail
{makes two cocktails}

2 bottles Mexican beer {I used Corona}
1 bottle limeade {I used Simply Limeade}
1 lime

Directions
Mix beer & limeade in a pitcher, pour over ice or serve chilled and garnish with a lime slice.

Bottoms Up!
