  • Mix ground beef, oats, onion, egg, water, garlic powder, salt, and black pepper together in a large bowl; shape into 1-inch balls and arrange into a large baking dish.

  • Bake in preheated oven until very firm, hot, and grey in the center, about 20 minutes. An instant-read thermometer inserted into the center should read 160 degrees F (70 degrees C). Drain fat from the dish.

Made the meatballs exactly as written they were done at 15 minutes so watch your time. There s nothing at all spicy in the meatballs so if you want that spicy Buffalo flavor I d recommend you mix up the sauce and taste before you add the honey. Also you really want the meatballs well coated with the sauce so I d suggest you double it or even triple (next time I ll triple) because the warm meatballs quickly soaked up the sauce. I mixed the hot sauce and butter together omitted the honey (personal taste preference) tasted and since we wanted it a little spicier I added a sprinkle of both cayenne and garlic powder. Basically you ll just have to adjust the sauce to your taste. This was a nice change from Buffalo-style chicken wings and not nearly as messy to eat! Read More

Used ground turkey instead of ground beef (personal preference). Left the meatballs "dry" so that we could freeze the left overs and sauce them according to preference. This time I went with buffalo style Tabasco sauce for the mild heat. Not too bad. Read More
