Buffalo Wing Haogies

Dinner is served! As I am typing this I am so sad that these are all eaten and I don’t have any leftovers.  When I saw these meatballs in a  magazine I knew I was going to make them right that same very day.  And I did!  If you like meatballs, if you like buffalo wings you are going to love these buffalo chicken wing meatballs! I mean really love them! The recipe in Fun and Festive Christmas Woman’s Day Specials had these meatballs as an appetizer.  They certainly would make a great party appetizer, especially for a football party.  Wings and football kinda go together, like PB&J.  Since I was not having a big party this night and it was just going to be 3 people eating I paired down the amounts and decided to make sandwiches out of them.  My Husband goes Bezerko over Meatball Grinders.  To anyone who does not live in Southern Connecticut that means huge meatballs, insane amounts of marinara sauce, oodles of bubbling cheese all on an over sized submarine roll.  Heart attack on a plate and not very appetizing to look at. Yet this is his favorite food.  We can be at a very expensive Italian Restaurant and he will ask if they have this even if it is not on the menu! Every time he does this I want to crawl under the table in embarrassment! So now that I have found a healthier option and quite frankly a tastier option he can have as many of these sandwiches that his little tummy desires!

This recipe has it’s own Blue Cheese sauce, it made so much that I used the left over sauce as salad dressing all week in my lunches to work.  I used Whole Wheat rolls and baked oven waffle fries to complete the meal!  Now all we needed was a good football game!
