Tantalizing Turkey and Blue Cheese Meatballs
These blue cheese and turkey meatballs are my own recipe.
These blue cheese and turkey meatballs are my own recipe.
These meatballs were absolutely fantastic. I made a few changes, such as omitting the jalapenos for personal preference, and I used a bit less ground pepper and chili pepper than were called for because I had never cooked with ground turkey before and didn't know how the flavor was going to be. The mixture seemed a LITTLE too wet but cooked up just perfectly. The Meatballs were juicy and extraordinarly flavorful. The italian seasoning I think is what really made these great. As I said, I wasnt sure how strong the flavor of the Turkey would be so I had reservations about what sort of Sauce I could serve these with. I ended up doing a garlic and olive oil angel hair pasta, but the Meatballs could have gone REALLY well with a Creamy mushroom sauce or even a marinara. I added an extra tablespoon of blue cheese and I still didnt think the flavor of the Blue cheese was very strong.. My father couldn't taste it at all! Will definitely add more next time and will DEFINITELY make these again and again.Read More

Don't let the somewhat unusual combination of ingredients throw you off. This is a fantastic, flavorful recipe that can be easily altered to suit your own tastes. My wife and I are cooking more with turkey these days (sorry, beef!) and no flavor was lost by using it. I was a little skeptical about the blue cheese. (I love it and she hates it). One of the other reviewers said it was undetectable, and I would have to agree... my wife didn't complain one bit! I skipped the jalapenos simply because I didn't have any, but basically followed the rest of the instructions closely and can't think of anything I would change. We'll make these again, maybe for a dinner party we have later this month.
I made this recipe almost exactly as written (I used half the black pepper called for). Unfortunately the meat mixture was too wet to form into meat balls. An additional 1/2 cup of bread crumbs did the trick. I really enjoyed this recipe. The ingredients were subtle and complemented each other well. I served the meatballs with a balsamic reduction along with sides of wilted spinach and pasta with homemade pesto sauce. YUM! On a sorry note, my husband and children are traditionalists and prefer the same old turkey meatballs I usually make (not your fault). They gave you between 1 and 3 stars. However, I gave you 5! Since my vote counts more (after all, I searched for recipe, made recipe, prepared appropriate accompaniments and took the time to review said recipe), I gave you an average 4 star rating. You did a great job and should be proud of this recipe. I am impressed that this was submitted by a 15 year old. I look forward to great things from you!
Very tasty recipe. I only had feta on hand, so I upped the oregano, and added a lot of crushed hot "pizza style" pepper. Nice Greek style meatballs. TIP OF THE DAY. Use mini muffin trays & make the meatballs a little larger so they sit up on the tray. Nice way to cook them, and the drippings are in the bottom of the trays.
Loved these meatballs! So tasty. My only problem was that they did stick to my aluminum foil a little too much. In the future I may let them cool and firm up some before trying to take them off of the cookie sheet. I served with a spicy marinara sauce and a spinach salad.
When my husband takes these to work people gather around the microwave to see what smells so good! Only tihng I changes was to use 1 Tbsp olive oil instead of 3. I am going to make these once a week.
This was a great new way to prepare ground turkey. I followed the recipe except I added only one jalepeno plus seeds and they were so good! Will make again.
One major problem is that the recipe calls for way too much black pepper. I would cut it to 1 tsp at most. I have to wonder it the tblsp is a misprint. It is OK, but I will do it much different next time.
Awesome! So impressed a 15 year old is submitting their own recipes! I'm not a HUGE fan of blue cheese but it is very subtle and really adds something great to the average turkeyball. Look foward to seeing more from you smithey!
Great recipe. Very delicious. Didn't have any jalapenos on hand so I used diced green chiles instead, which I thought worked very well. Will definitely make these again.
I didn't find these as amazing as other did. To be fair, I didn't follow the recipe precisely (used a whole onion, 2 full eggs, slightly more turkey/crumbs/blue cheese)...but for me the blue cheese taste wasn't enough or just didn't work. I also expected a bit more taste with all of spices included. Not a bad idea for combos of flavours...but my execution didn't result in an amazing result.
Awsome recipe!!!. This is what i did, I used 1 lb. of ground turkey, 1 small onion grated, 1 tsp minced garlic (in the jar),1/2 to 3/4 cup gorgonzola or blue cheese, cumbled), 1/2 cup dry bread crumbs, 1/4 cup egg beaters or 1 egg beaten, 1/2 tsp salt,1/4 tsp black pepper, 1-2 tsp nutmeg, mix all together,roll in 2 inch balls, place on oiled baking sheet, bake at 350 degrees for 35-40 mins. For sauce, I made a white sauce with 1 tbl butter, 1 tbp olive oil, 2 tbp flour (brown together in sauce pan). Add 1 can evaporated milk, cook on medium to thicken. Add 1/4-1/2 tsp cayenne, 1/2 tsp salt, 1 tsp dry mustard pwd, 1/2 tsp nutmeg, 3/4 cup water with 1-2 tsp chicken stock granules. Cook till thick. Cook 1 pkg. egg noodles, mix all together.. Thanks 4 the ideas smithey.......My hubby ummmed with every bite!!!!
These meatballs were tender, flavorful and delicious. I used ground turkey breast and baked them on foil sprayed with cooking spray. Per the suggestions of other reviewers, I allowed them to cool on the foil and they came right off despite the fact I forgot to add oil to the recipe. I used Worcestershire in place of soy sauce. I served them over noodles topped with a white sauce to which I added garlic and Parmesan cheese--mmmmmmm GOOD! Thank you for a recipe I will use again! P.S. My husband had leftover meatballs in a sandwich for lunch the next day: like a meatloaf sandwich, only better.
Best meatball I have ever made hands down! I'm not a huge fan of blue cheese but decided to give it a go in this....so glad I did! It's not over powering and the seasoning is perfect! Served it with balsamic cream sauce from this site. Perfect...thanks!
This is terrific. You say it's a recipe you designed? Then I think you have a future in culinary school, such as the CIA (if you can afford it, or get loans). Think about it. It makes ground turkey, which is often dry, into a moist, succulent dish. This one's a keeper.
Amazing flavor. I followed this recipe with a few minor adjustments to allow for less heat, leaving out the jalapenos and dialing the black pepper down to 1 teaspoon. Not wanting to be left with egg yolks to deal with, I used only two whole eggs and omitted the olive oil. Otherwise made as written. The blue cheese bite was prominent but did not overpower. For the best blue cheese flavor, be sure to use a traditional full strength Danish blue and not a milder one. The ingredient list reads like a motley crew, but it all simply melds together beautifully. The meat balls were perfectly moist. The mixture will seem overly moist, but this is what contributes to the tenderness of the final product. Use a small cookie scoop to form each one and bake on a sheet of parchment paper for stick-free, easy cleanup. With such great flavor, they really stand well on their own and I served them that way, unaccompanied by a sauce of any kind.
I made up almost the exact same recipe except I "sneak" in more vegies (carrots, mushrooms, red & yellow peppers & zucchini). Everyone loves them! Especially good on spaghetti squash with a little light alfredo sauce.
What a great change from my usual meatball recipe! I didn't bother processing the garlic, onion and jalapeno - just diced it all super-finely by hand. Also used two whole eggs instead of just whites. Needed a little salt in addition to the soy sauce, and maybe some kind of sauce, but we really enjoyed them. Good stuff! Thanks!
My husband saw this recipe come through our inbox and decided to give them a try. We don't eat any red meat in our house so needed something different to try with ground turkey. We tripled the recipe (we have 7 to feed and 3 are teens). We made this with one less egg white, substituted oregano for the Italian seasoning as we were out and dill for the parsley as we were out as well. Everyone from the 9y/o to the 92y/o absolutely loved them! This made 24 2" meatballs. I made a cream gravy and we served them over buttered noodles with dill and increased the baking time by 10 minutes because we tripled the recipe! Will definitely make again and again!
The kids didnt like these much, but I think it was the bleu cheese. I however, loved them! I will make them again, in a small batch for myself. Thanks for the great recipe!
We really liked these. I did make a few changes (no eggs, Worcestershire for the soy, a whole onion) but nothing that I think made any real difference. I served these over fettucine with a bechamel sauce which I seasoned with some of the jalapeno/onion mixture from this recipe. It was a great meal, thanks for sharing!
I've been a member of AR for years. It's my go-to source for recipes. Not often have I felt compelled to rate a recipe, but this one is *ridiculously* GOOD. Read the helpful hints from others. My only modifications were a little more bread crumbs, the mixture was pretty wet. (I added about 1/4 cup.) And less pepper. I used 1 TEASPOON, not tablespoon. Be sure to spray your foil with cooking spray. That's it. These. Are. Awesome. And easy. I'll make these from now on!
I had to make some substitutions because I really didn't feel like going to the store...so I just used what was in my kitchen. I didn't use the jalepeno peppers, I used grated parmesan cheese instead of the blue, and used seasoned bread crumbs. After the meatballs were baked I put them in the crockpot with Ragu Marinara sauce and slow cooked them for about 5 hours for a party. Everyone loved them and no one even knew they were turkey! Next time I try these I will definitely be following the recipe exactly...I have a feeling the blue cheese will add a nice dimension of flavor.
These had an odd texture but not necessarily in a bad way. It just wasn't what I usually get in a meatball. I thought they had good flavor even though I left out the jalapeno since I have small children. I also added almost double the blue cheese since so many other reviewers could not taste the cheese. All in all, they were good and complimented my husband's tomato sauce pretty well.
My husband loves blue cheese, and we've both been trying to stay away from beef, so turkey meat was good. I am happy to say this reipe was so good i sould have made a double batch! simple to make and fun to put together!
These meatballs are wonderful. Made them tonight and oh so flavorful. I served the with the Pasta & Herb receipe from this sight. Served it over fettucinni'.
Liked by all!! Left out the jalapeno and chili powder for kids.
I thought this was a great recipe, hubby and I both loved it! I always add extra garlic because I love it! Thanks so much!
Awesome! These were so good, and easy to make. For 1# of turkey, I used a spoonful of green chiles, about 2-3 ounces of blue cheese, 1 whole egg, and I eyeballed the amount of bread crumbs until it was a nice moist but ball-able texture. Perfect! Everyone loved them. THank you!
These ingredients seem unlikely to go together, but they're actually really great!! This was a really yummy recipe! I only added 1 jalapeno pepper, though. Thank you so much for sharing this recipe!
I was hoping that these would be a little better. I make turkey meatballs all the time ... and I thought I would try these as something different. I just used whole eggs .. not the egg whites. Also, I wanted these for in a crock pot, so I made a swedish meatball sauce to go with the meatballs. Crowd seemed to like them. Probably won't make them again.
Excellent. I left out the jalapenos and made a balsamic glaze to drizzle on them and it was perfect.
I was so excited to make these once I saw the blue cheese and the jalapenoes..2 of my favorite things! They weren't bad but I don't think I would make them again. The spices realy didn't blend with the jalapenoes and blue cheese. When I made them all of my blue cheese leaked out. Maybe pan frying them would be a bit better. Mine also stuck to the tin foil. I will say they were very moist. I had to force my husband to eat them.
thank you for the recipe : ) These are good, but considering the # of ingredients I expected outstanding! I only used 1TB. of oil and I think that is why they stuck to the foil a bit before cooling. The oil is not needed, IMHO, if you grease the pan. The jalapeno and breadcrumbs and extra seasoning take away from the more pure turkey/blue cheese taste I think I was looking for!!
When I was the age of this genius I had no concept of cuisine! Wolfgang, Emerill, Bobby...watch out!\ These are fabulous. I subbed ground venison for the turkey and dropped the oil to 1 T. No problem with removing from foil. Hubby and I were extremely impressed with the results. Kudos!
This was a really good meatball recipe for adults, REALLY good, but my kids didn't care for it.
I made these for my family, and they were excellent.
Absolutely delicious. Add more bleu cheese if you are a lover!
These were delish! The only thing I changed was the amount of bread crumbs. I didn't have a half cup, it was more like a little more than a 1/4 c. They didn't fall apart but were still moist and juicy! I served them in a really light alfredo sauce over fettucini with a side of steamed broccoli. I will definitely make this again.
The whole family loved these. Very, very tasty (and I'm not a big ground turkey fan). The only change I made was to use two whole eggs instead of separating the eggs. And the only complaint from my family was that I didn't make enough! UPDATE 3/12/14: I used this recipe for turkey burgers and it was fabulous. Very tasty, moist burgers. I made guacamole to top the turkey burgers and it was excellent. Thanks again for a recipe I keep coming back to, again and again!
These are good. They adapt well to changes also. We made this recipe with ground pork since it was on sale. Everything else was done as written. I found the meatballs to be a tad bit dry and tasted like they had too much bread crumbs so next time we will use less but overall this is a good recipe. FYI: these can me made smaller and served as hors dourves quite easily. I am still looking for a sauce to match them though.
These are so delicious! Beware to wear gloves when working with jalapenos. I also reduced the black pepper and used italian seasoned bread crumbs so eliminated the seasoning. I think I tripled the blue cheese and only made about 1 inch balls. The cheese melted out of the meatballs as they cooked, but I scooped it all up and put them in a crockpot to be served as cocktail meatballs. No sauce needed. Very yummy!
These were so different and so great! I used jarred jalapeno slices (about 10) and 4 heaping tablespoons of blue cheese. Otherwise everything as per the recipe. It was outstanding!
excellent combination of ingredients..My first attempt was a winner...However, on my next attempt, I'll use 1 teaspoon of pepper and increase bread crumbs to 3/4 cups to reduce wetness of the mixture...
The best way to describe these meatballs is "WOW". When I first saw the recipe I thought it would be great to bring to a New Years Eve party. But were they the best??? I tried them on a few friends over for cocktails. I can not tell you the enthusiastic response I received on the taste. They will be going with me on New Years Eve...and by the way, I used a Balsamic Cream Sauce as suggested by a previous rater of the meatballs. Absolutely fantastic.
This was great! I added extra jalapenos with the seeds, cut down the black pepper by half, and made into hamburger patties. They had a great flavor, with just the right amount of kick. I will definately make these again - thanks for the recipe!
These meatballs are so good that it made me write a review for the first time. the reason why I didn’t give it a 5 star is because I customized the recipe. Accidently, I forgot to add oil and egg whites but still these meat balls are so good and now I am happy that they are even less calories. They are soft, and full of flavor. Love them. Will do them again.
AWESOME!! I tried these out for the first time and took to our Office Food Day!! They barely made it out of the house, we loved them so much!! I will definitely make again and have shared the recipe with MANY friends.
These were REALLY great meatballs. Made exactly as is, with the exception of leaving the Jalapenos out of 2 meatballs for my small kids. Everyone gobbled them up! Will definitely make again!
This was a hit with my family! I made it into a Turkey Meat loaf. I did however add about 1/2 cup more of bread crumbs to dry it up some. And instead of jalapeno peppers only because I did not have them, I used 1 Tbsp of crushed red peppers. I also added 3 more Tbsp of Blue Cheese on top of the loaf at the end of cooking just because I wanted to LOL! It was awesome! Thanks for sharing!
We loved this recipe! I followed the suggestions from the top rated reviewer, except I did not add the onion or garlic---I forgot!!! But I added Garlic powder at the end on top of the already rolled meatballs. Very good!
All star review for this recipe. Very healthy & in my opinion, very tasty! It was suggested to me to add salt next time, so you may or may not want to add that along for some more flavor. Either that, or it was suggested to add some more blue cheese. Yummyyyy
Fantastic! made as is and husband and i both loved them. This one is a keeper for me.
yummm, these were good. Just eyeballed the ingredients, skipped the jalapeno, used 3 stalks of green onion instead and probably more than 3 tbs gorgonzola. The cayenne gave it a perfect kick. Will make again
These meatballs were really good. I used feta cheese instead of blue cheese since that's what I had on hand. They would be better with some type of sauce since the turkey dries out easily in the oven. I served them w/rice & veggie stuffed peppers on the side, but tomorrow night they'll be in spaghetti!
had to add some bread crumbs and put the mixture in the fridge for a while to firm the meat up but these meatballs were a big hit at our house. We'll definitely make them again! lots of good flavor there :)
These are delicious. I doubled the bleu cheese and breadcrumbs, used one whole egg instead of whites and also subbed worchestershire for soy because it's what I had. Also, I cooked these on a wire rack sprayed with oil which I then placed on a cookie sheet so that the fat could drip down. I may as well toss my old meatball recipe- they pale in comparison.
the meatballs were great! Husband did not realize it was turkey! I baked them until they were golden brown.
These were fabulous! I chose to take some advice from previous reviews. I added and additional 1/2 cup of bread crumbs (I used a mixture of plain and Italian style) I also sauteed the onion, jalapeno and garlic slightly before mixing it in with the other ingredients. Wonderful flavor and I am happy to see children learning to cook! Everyone should learn, and you are off to a great start!
Delicious!!! The reviews are correct - you don't actually taste the blue cheese, but it does add to the over-all flavor . . . will most certainly make this again. VERY yum.
We really like these meatballs but you can't even really taste the blue cheese. I will add more next time.
These meatballs were SO good! I made them for a Christmas party and they were a huge hit. The only changes I made was used 2 whole eggs instead of 3 egg whites. I also used waxed paper instead of aluminum foil and they did not stick at all. Making them again tonight for Christmas Eve at my in-laws. yum, yum!
I followed this recipe, but instead of making them into meatballs, I made them into sliders (tiny hamburgers). They were fantastic. I just shaped them into 2 inch patties and baked them in the oven. While they were baking, I took a baguette and sliced it into thin slices and then drizzled olive oil on each side and toasted them on a grill pan. When the sliders were done I placed them on the baguette slices and served them with ketchup & mustard. My college age son loved them.
Delicious. I used one egg instead of three egg whites, and I used Worcestershire sauce instead of soy sauce. Otherwise I followed the recipe exactly. I made the balsamic cream sauce, copying another reviewer on here. The meatballs are incredible with the sauce, but in typical turkey fashion, they are a little bland on their own.
I made this recipe EXACTLY as it is written and I wouldn't change a thing. In my opinion the jalapenos are very key. I loved these and would make them again and again.
I made these for Thanksgiving this year, as an appetizer, and everyone loved them! They really are great. I served them with a side of marinara for dipping. I highly recommend them.
Awesome and spicy! Hard to not just keep popping them in your mouth!
Tasty recipe. My changes: substituted 1 cup feta for the blue cheese, reduced olive oil to 1 tbsp, reduced pepper to approx 1 tsp, substituted worcesterchire for soy, and eliminated the chili powder. My ground turkey package weight was 1.25# since that's all my store carried. All other ingredients were left as is. The mixture was moist, but not overly so. Made sixteen (16) 2" meatballs, with one small guy left over. Cooked up incredibly moist, cheesy, and yummy!
Actually very good. I only used one jalapeno and added an extra Tbsp. or two of blue cheese. Instead of 3 egg whites I used 2 whole eggs and only 2 Tbsp. of olive oil. I made them as an appetizer (bite size) and served them with the Balsamic Cream Sauce from this site as someone else recommeded. It was the perfect compliment as a dipping sauce but could have been used on pasta with the meatballs in a meal. Very tasty.
im debating on between a 2 and 3 stars. we ate it but i really dont feel like having the tons of left overs in the fridge but feel obligated since i have so much. definatly would not make again. not bad, just not good.
I didn't care for this recipie. The meatball mixyure was much too loose and the flavor was much too spicy. I like the idea of adding crumbled cheese to the meatballs, but I think I would try goat cheese next time and tone down the Pepper and chilli pepper.
I didn't have any jalepenos on hand when I made this the first time, so I decided to substitute crumbled bacon. It was so good. I've made it with the jalepenos too and it was great but if you want to mix it up a little bit, I suggest trying some bacon! Blue Cheese and Bacon is an awesome flavor combo!! Thanks for this recipe, we eat it almost every week. Also good as a turkey burger, with kaiser rolls, red-leaf lettuce and mayo (I mix a little worchestire sauce in with my mayo!) Delish!!
I loved these, however my hubby who is not a bleu cheese fan thought they tasted a little off. Next time, I will make them with feta to appease him. Used only 1 jalapeno, no olive oil, & 1 whole egg, and only a dash of chili powder, otherwise followed the recipe. Baked on a foil lined non-stick sprayed cookie sheet. Served with brown rice and sauteed mushrooms in a wine & turkey broth sauce. So yummy! They were not at all spicey, so next time may add both jalapenos & if the kids don't like them, then there are more for the adults!
I really liked these with a marinara sauce on spaghetti. When I tried to eat them alone, all I could taste was blue cheese. Next time, I will either use much less blue cheese or omit it altogether. The recipe was really easy to make, though!
Really one of the best dishes ever!!
I made these a while ago and realised that I forgot to rate them. These were really very good. I had no jalapenos on hand, so I subbed with green tabasco sauce instead. I think I added a bit more blue cheese, just because I love it. Thanks for the recipe!
Just got finished eating this recipe and my husband and I both loved it! Unfortunately, I made it prior to reading the reviews. Like others, I will reduce pepper and double bleu cheese next time. I did not find the mixture to be too loose or liquidy, it fit into meatballs nicely and they were very moist when we had them. Served over angel hair pasta tossed with olive oil and a sundried tomato alfredo sauce bought at the store.
I followed the recipe, almost. I wasn't sure about two jalapeños in this recipe but I felt adventurous and added them. I only put one egg in recipe and used the yolk as well. The meat mixture was very wet so I added a bit more bread crumbs. I did omit the chili powder as I was using it in an accompanying side dish. These were very tasty and I would definitely make this recipe again.
I used Feta instead of blue cheese because of preference. I cut back on the onion as well. I love Panko breadcrumbs so I used those. Also made them with fresh parsley. I really enjoyed these as did my boyfriend. Served with spaghetti sauce noodles and broccoli along side. Will make again someday.
These are delicious!! The first time I made these, I made them smaller to serve as an appetizer and they were gone in an instant! My family requested them again within the same week!
These are really great. they are crispy on the outside and very moist inside. Perfect!
Added significantly more blue cheese
I didn't have this recipe with me so I tried to complete by memory. Well my memory left out the egg whites. I felt that the oil added the wetness I needed and I probably only used 2 tablespoons. I left out the jalapenos intentionally, however I think they would've added a nice kick and will use next time. These meatballs were great! Served with pasta florentine one night and then had meatball sandwiches the next day! These meatballs are good enough to eat alone, very tasty! Thank you for this recipe!
This was the first of our appetizers to disappear on New Year's Eve! Everyone wanted more!
ummm. ..Yumm. Not only did they make my house smell so yummy, they are the best meatballs ever! I did not use the jalapeno, the hubby does like them. I also used Gorgonsola cheeze instead of blue cheese (its a bit sharper and is sold next to blue cheese normally) For the sauce i just used an ala vodka sauce. Great recipe! i absolutely loved them!
Followed the recipe exactly and came out delicious! The only thing I would do differently is add more blue cheese, but that's just because I can't get enough of it!
These meatballs were so tasty and delicious! I did not add in the jalapeno peppers because I thought it would be a bit too spicey, and they were still GREAT! The Blue Cheese and chili pepper really added a nice kick the regular meatballs I usually make with tomatoe sauce! I made these meatballs with some creamed spinach, and it was even better the day after.
i changed it up bc of the ingredients i had on hand. i didnt mince anything just finely chopped. i added red pepper flakes and used goat cheese instead. mine were pretty big so 30 mins was perfect. they were yummy!
I make these for my family at least once a week. I just added brown rice, mushrooms, and more jalapeno peppers...we like heat in our family. But these are so amazing!!! Thanks ;)
Wonderful recipe, didn't change a thing about it and thought it was delish.
I followed the recipe exactly and it was wayyy to wet. I added more breadcrumbs and it is still to wet. If I made it again I would only do one egg and perhaps 1 1/2 tab. oil. Also, the black pepper is a bit much. Reduce by half.
This is an interesting recipe. I was not, personally, all that thrilled with it, but it got some rave reviews at the party so I've kept it. (I made 3 times as much for the party.) I would add less olive oil and more bread crumbs. It seems to need lots of salt. And I added a smidge of worchestire. Baking the meatballs on aluminum foil on a pan in the oven didn't work. I fried them on the stovetop in a little oil. I might make it again for a gathering. Some people seemed to really like it.
Delicious and easy! I just grated a half onion into the turkey instead of using a food processor. Also, I substituted one whole egg instead of the 3 egg whites and it worked perfectly! Make sure not to overwork otherwise the meatballs get tough!
This recipe was amazing! I myself like a heavy blue cheese flavor, so I added 5 tablespoons of it. My boyfriend said it was too much blue cheese, but I thought it was perfect. I also only added one jalepeno, an extra 1/4 cup bread crumbs to help the wetness of the mixture, and added everything else exactly to the recipe. It was heaven!!!
At first I was a little taken a back by the variety of ingredients in this recipe but don't/ let it scare you. These meatballs are great. The only things I changed were I only used a tbl. of olive oil and a teaspoon of pepper. Next time I will probably add more blue cheese just to fit our tastes. I will be making these again.
Very good recipe. I wish I could rate it a 4.5, but that is not an option on this site. I served these with spaghetti and they were devoured. The blue cheese was very subtle and the jalepano/chili/black pepper gave it a nice kick. Thanks for sharing!
I doubled the garlic AND blue cheese. Also, broiled the meatballs on high for the last couple of minutes to get them a little crispier and brown. Served on hoagie buns, drizzled with buffalo wing sauce and blue cheese dressing.. they were awesome!
DELICIOUS! I followed the recipe exactly and this is now my new favorite meatball! I baked them in a mini muffin pan as someone had suggested in a previous review and the meatballs came out very easily and it only took 20 minutes to cook. I served them with egg noodles and a mushroom sauce (1 can cream of mushroom sauce, 1/2 cup of milk, italian seasoning, 1/2 tablespoon of butter and 3 tbl of grated parmesan cheese) VERY GOOD! I will be making these very often! Thanks for sharing!
Yummy! these were great! I loved them! The flavors all worked. Best meatballs I've had!
