Buffalo Meatballs

With the holidays coming in fast it is all about entertaining and appetizers. One of my favourite appetizers is to make meatballs. They are easy to make and can be switched up a zillion different ways!

Buffalo meatballs are a fun way to showcase these balls.

You can easily make these meatballs the day ahead and just pop them back in the oven to warm up or even better- use your slow cooker.

Once ready to serve, dollop the meatballs with the hot sauce and a drizzle of the creamy yogurt.

These gluten-free buffalo meatballs are also low carb and keto for I did not use any bread crumbs to form the balls.

I do love a good meatball appetizer. Will be sharing another meatball appetizer next week. Watch out for marmalade meatball recipe.
