Our family, including our beloved Grandma Lorraine, who famously told us that “there’s not much in life that can’t be made better with butter,” has made developing the perfect batch of butter our family legacy. This goal is more than 125 years in the making, a passion passed on from generation to generation, including our children, who make up generation six.
The end result is a line high butterfat butter in multiple, dreamy flavors, from sea salt butter to the garlic herb variety.
You can grab the rolled version of our butter — or the classic sticks you’ll often find on store shelves — from your local market or specialty store, by using our location tool.
So, without further ado, here’s our recipe for Buffalo Chicken Meatballs:
- 1 pound ground chicken (or ground turkey)
- 1 large egg
- 1/4 onion, minced
- 2 tablespoon fresh parsley, chopped
- 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
- 1/2 tablespoon dried parsely
- 1/4 cup Parmesan cheese, grated
- 1/4 cup panko breadcrumbs
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 1/4 teaspoon black pepper
- 1 tablespoon oil
- 4 tablespoons butter
- 1 cup buffalo wing sauce
OPTIONAL INGREDIENTS FOR THE PLATTER:
- 1 pack mini mozzarella cheese balls
- 1/2 block feta cheese
- 1 pack baby carrots
- Bunch of celery
- Snow peas
- English Cucumber
- 1/2 cup Ranch dressing
- 1/2 cup blue cheese dressing
- Preheat oven to 400°F.
- Add onion, garlic, an egg, Parmesan cheese, breadcrumbs, herbs, and seasonings to a large bowl then stir with a fork to combine.
- Add ground chicken then mix until combined, then drizzle a bit of oil – do not over-mix or meatballs will be tough. Divide chicken mixture into quarters, then each quarter into 4 balls, which gives you 16 meatballs.
- Place meatballs onto a buttered cooling rack set on top of a baking sheet, then bake for 20 to 25 minutes.
- Melt butter in a skillet over medium-high heat then add buffalo sauce and stir to combine.
- Add cooked meatballs to the skillet then turn them around to coat in sauce.
- Place a lid on top and turn heat to low to keep warm. The sauce will get thicker.
- Serve everything on the charcuterie board, a large plate, or a platter.
- Oil your hands with a bit of oil so the meatballs roll easier.
- You may use grill, or air-fryer to cook meatballs. Cooking time may vary.
