Crockpot Buffalo Chicken Meatballs with Blue Cheese Dressing

Not only do I have a super yummy recipe for you today but I have something else special for you all. If you read my blog you know I complain about the weather in great detail. That’s because I live in Calgary where we basically have 2 seasons, winter and July.

But regardless of the weather, I do live in one of the most beautiful places on earth. Nearby we have Banff and Lake Louise which are well known winter ski areas and are beautiful mountain summer escapes. Other mountain destinations are Kananaskis Country and Canmore that are about an hour away by car. I love to go shopping in Canmore but this is just one of numerous things to do such as golf, hikes, etc. Just 3 hours away we have Waterton-Glacier International Peace Park just south of Calgary. And let’s not forget Jasper, which is a very well known mountain destination, just about 4 hours drive northwest of Calgary. And one of my favorite places of all is going to Edmonton, which is just about a 3 hour drive from here. Edmonton is the home of North America’s largest mall, you will not get bored here.

But what better way for you to see where I live than to show you pictures of my surroundings. These beautiful photographs were taken by my brother in law who is a professional photographer. These are just a few of his amazing photographs and I strongly urge you to visit his website Brilliant Landscapes where you can find a lot more of his photographs.

So next time I complain to you all about the weather, just tell me to shut up!

Not only do I have beautiful photographs for you of where I live, but I have yummy pictures and a recipe for you of these yummy Buffalo chicken meatballs that I made in my trusted crockpot and served with blue cheese dressing. I don’t make chicken meatballs often because most of the time I think they’re tasteless but this is why we have Buffalo sauce. If you can’t handle too much spice I would cut down on the Buffalo sauce otherwise, go nuts. Even the picky hand model devoured these meatballs, and where I normally encounter grunts and complaints, this time all I encountered was silence, which is a good thing. Trust me.

    These look great! I’m planning to quadruple the recipe and serve these at my sister’s baby shower this weekend. Would you recommend changing the crock pot cook time? Also, do these re-heat well if made the night before?

    Thanks!

      You might want to add a bit more time, but it’s best to taste them and make sure the meat is cooked. Yes they reheat quite well.

    You are one of my favorite food bloggers as far as recipes. Thank you for your creativity. I am totally enjoying that aspect of you. This is another fun and tasty recipe. I am both a meatball fiend and I have a love affair with my slow cooker. A couple of weeks ago at an Asian fusion restaurant I had pork meatballs in a coconut curry sauce that had me rhapsodizing. So meatballs are REALLY on my radar screen at the moment.
