Blue cheese violated meatballs with buffalo sauce

So where oh where did we go?  Let us just call it a place called burnoutville.  Between holidays, other obligations, beer, more obligations, general disdain for discussions about SEO over why we got into blogging which is FOOD!!!!!!  Not saying I would not like to make it rich and relax on a private island for the rest of my life but we just care more about the food we cook than if golly gee someone from Food Network sees this and wants to offer us a million dollar contact to get in front of a camera and act like idiots to show users how to properly chop an onion (I can already see people hitting the unsubscribe from blog button).

Also, I would like to point out that this recipe does not contain beer.  This is shocking because our last runs contained nothing but beer.  Fear not you hobos slamming your 40s discretely wrapped in paper bags we will be providing more beer soaked food in the coming weeks. 

Well work summons so off to do what allows us to afford web space so we can ramble about nothing and everything all at the same time.  Yeah we are that good…

For this recipe you first need to make the meatballs.  If you do not have a super secret family recipe here is a pretty idiot proof one:

  1. 2 # Ground Beef
  2. 1 # Ground Pork
  3. 1 c breadcrumbs
  4. 3 T minced parsley
  5. 2 T minced garlic
  6. 1/2 onion, minced
  7. 2 eggs
  8. Blue cheese

To make the meatballs:

  1. Combine all ingredients except blue cheese.
  2. Form into balls and shove a piece of blue in the middle because let us face it everything is better with more cheese.
  3. Put in fridge for a couple of hours to harden up.

For the rest of the recipe you will need:

  1. 2 cups of Frank’s hot sauce (used the extra hot)
  2. 1 onion diced
  3. Couple stalks of celery diced
  4. Carrot diced

Steps for glory:

  1. 8 TB of butter
  2. Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
  3. Melt the butter over medium heat. Add in the meatballs in batches and brown all over. Remove and set aside.
  4. Add in the celery, carrot, and onion and sauté until softened.
  5. Add the meatballs back in and pour the hot sauce over top of them
  6. Put in the oven for 20 minutes or until they are done. Serve with more blue cheese

Serve and enjoy!

    Um, hello? How freaking much do I want these? Do you deliver yet?

    I feel you on the being burned out thing. It’s hit a lot of people I talk to on a regular basis! Weird, right? Must have been the holidays, or at least-that must be a big part of it. And yeah, the elitist-food-snobbery-and-general-turning-up-of-noses thing has bugging the crap out of me, too. I’ll take my grilled cheese with cheese, please. It doesn’t have to be 5 year aged cheese from the ancient fabulous goats in the smallest village in the farthest reaches of the Swiss Alps.

    Just gotta keep doing what you do and making food that you like. That’s what works.

    Now go make me some of these meatballs!
