Neat Recipe – Bleu-Cheese Stuffed Buffalo Neatballs

Buffalo-Neatballs-2

Ingredients:

2 packs neat original
1 bottle Franks Original Red Hot Sauce
4oz. Block of bleu cheese, cut into 20 cubes
2 eggs (we used 2 vegan eggs) – neat egg

Directions:

Combine 2 packs of neat original, 2/3 cup hot sauce, and 2 eggs (or vegan eggs, neat egg) in a bowl until the neat mix is thoroughly moistened. The mix should now be a good consistency to roll into round neatballs.

Form a 1″ ball around each of the bleu cheese cubes and place on a greased cookie sheet.  Yields about 20 neatballs.

In a 350 degree oven, bake the neatballs for 16-18 minutes or until the cheese just begins to bubble through some of the neatballs.

Coat the neatballs in the remaining hot sauce and serve with celery and bleu cheese dressing.

Enjoy!
