Spicy buffalo style meatballs

1 pound ground beef

1/2 cup fine bread crumbs

1 large egg, slightly beaten

2 tablespoons chopped onion

2 cloves garlic, minced

Salt 1/2 teaspoon

1/2 teaspoon pepper

2 to 3 tablespoons hot pepper sauce or buffalo sauce

2 tablespoons butter, melted

1 tablespoon honey

Blue cheese sauce

Celery sticks

Carrot sticks

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit. Combine ground beef, breadcrumbs, eggs, onion, garlic, salt and pepper in a large bowl, mixing lightly but well.

Shape beef mixture into 32-inch meatballs; Place on rack in broiler pan. Bake in a 350°F oven for 18 to 20 minutes.

Chef Tip: Cooking times are for fresh or completely thawed ground beef. Ground beef should be cooked to an internal temperature of 160°F. Color is not a reliable indicator of doneness of ground meat.

Meanwhile, combine chili sauce or buffalo sauce, butter and honey in a large bowl; Mix well. Add meatballs to sauce mixture, stirring until well coated.

Serve meatballs with sauce, celery and carrots.
