Call me Omega 3 man. None of that corn-fed, hormone-filled beef for me. No thanks. I’ll take the grass-fed buffalo any day. After averaging several recipes together and checking what I had in my kitchen, I developed this buffalo meatball recipe. Simple and delicious.
Photo is titled Meatball Army from Flickr user Mr. Usaji. His photo of meatball preparation was much better than mine.
- 1 pound ground buffalo
- 4oz ricotta cheese
- 1 small onion diced
- 1/2 cup breadcrumbs (optional)
- 1 clove garlic diced or pressed
Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. Mix above ingredients in a bowl. Roll mix into walnut size meatballs. Lightly coat pan with oil. Place meatballs on the tray. Cook for 23 minutes. Done.
If pressed for time, you can cook in a lightly oiled pan for about 10 minutes. I tried both ways and slightly preferred the taste of the oven cooked buffalo meatballs.
