Buffalo-style Meatballs

“Coated in hot pepper sauce, these meatballs have a zesty flavor on the outside and a delicious surprise on the inside (a chunk of blue cheese!) ” You can also make a mean meat loaf with this recipe! Just place half of the beef mixture from Step 1 in a 9-x 5-inch loaf pan. Sprinkle about 2 ounces blue cheese on top of the meat. Cover with the rest of the beef mixture and bake at 350°F until cooked through, 50–60 minutes. Serve the hot pepper and butter sauce on the side.
