Buffalo Meatballs with Cheese Sauce


My meatball inspiration & this photo came from Free the Animal (FTA) blog and am certain it is just as delicious as he claims, but my variation turned out amazing too:

I bought a 1lb package of ground Buffalo meat and shaped it into small balls – made them extra small to cook fast because we were hungry. I heated bacon drippings from breakfast and a little bit of butter (would’ve used lard but we were out…). Removed meatballs after they were thoroughly cooked & kept them hot on a covered plate next to the oven.
.
Added juice/fat I’d reserved from Friday’s 32 Garlic Cloves with Chicken meal to the pan now containing bacon and buffalo meat juices as well as 2 tbsp butter. (I drank the red wine FTA recommended adding).
.
I added a long-pie-sliver of blue cheese I’d purchased from the German market which amounted probably to around 4-5tbsp, heated and stirred until thoroughly combined and then added the meatballs back in.
.
Had planned on adding crème fraîche, but the smell was incredible and the brussels sprouts were ready….
