So if you never have another meal again and have to pick just one, this is it. Dramatic much? Perhaps, but these are so good. SOOOO good. The kick of the buffalo sauce, the sweet of the onions, and the cool, creamy ranch. Can’t really deal.
So when you find something that is especially satisfying, what do you do with it?! You share it with the world. Or at least a few close friends. Amiright?! Well lucky for me, I have made friends with some fabulous blogger friends who are as obsessed with food just as much as I am. And they invited me to a pot luck. Well a virtual pot luck. Are you confused yet?! Don’t be.
So, Let’s Hang Out and The Pig & Quill put together an awesome online get together where we all “bring” a tasty pot luck dish and share them with each other and YOU! There are a lot of lovely participants, so I am convinced you’ll find a yum for everyone! And for now, have a meatball…or 12. #soletspigout #soletspigoutpotluck
- 1 pound grass fed ground beef
- 1 large onion, diced
- 1 egg
- 1 teaspoon parsley
- 1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
- 1/4 teaspoon onion powder
- 1/4 teaspoon sea salt
- 1/3 cup organic chicken broth
- 1/3 cup dairy free buffalo sauce
- 1/3 cup organic, high quality ketchup (or homemade if possible)
- 4 tablespoons tapioca or arrowroot flour, divided
- 1 teaspoon avocado oil, or preferred cooking fat
- Start by caramelizing your onion – you’ll want to brown your diced onion in the cooking oil over medium/high heat, stirring carefully to avoid burning.
- Continue cooking until all the onions are nicely browned; a dark caramel color
- Preheat your oven to 350
- Combine caramelized onions, egg, ground beef, garlic powder, onion powder, parsley, sea salt, and 2 tablespoons flour in a bowl
- Work the mixture together thoroughly with your hands
- Now form meatballs with the mixture, I was able to make 12 total
- Place the meatballs in a casserole dish and bake for 20 minutes
- While meatballs are baking, combine chicken broth, buffalo sauce, ketchup and remaining 2 tablespoons of flour in a bowl
- Remove meatballs from oven, pour out grease, and pour buffalo sauce over meatballs
- Bake for another 15 minutes
- These are best served with my homemade ranch
Oh heavens! These look amazing. Can’t wait to pig out on a few of these topped with extra caramelized onions!

If these were at a real life potluck that my family attended you would have to drag my daughter away from the meatball platter kicking and screaming!!! These sound so good. Nice to “meet” you through the potluck:)

OH, JENNNNNNNNIFER! You’ve gone and done it. I will take all twelve please. In the closet. With a fork. I don’t have to share them, right? Oh… what’s that? That’s not in the spirit of this whole “potluck” situation? FINE. I’ll share.
Thanks so much for joining us for the #SoLetsPigOut Potluck! Love you major. xo

YUM! These look so good. Happy #soletspigout potluck day/TGIF!
For the antipodeans… Please clarify “dairy free buffalo sauce”. I’ve googled and all that comes up is wing sauce and none have dairy to start with?
Can’t wait to try this recipe!!
I am SO crazy about meat balls and i have no idea why my meat balls are always so boring! Thank you for making my boring meat balls full of life!

Should we even talk about how I just assumed “buffalo” meatballs meant these are bison meatballs until I actually put on my brain and read the recipe? Not that there’d be anything wrong with that. In fact, I’ve got some bison waiting to become dinner that might just have to wander its way into something prettttty similar to this tasty little number. So glad to have you pig out with us, Jennifer! 🙂 Thanks for chillin’!
Ya know, I totally had that thought when I was titling this bad boy. But I see no reason why bison wouldn’t be fabby too!

Made these and set them on top of your dilly slaw. So freaking good.
