Here’s the third and final Buffalo Meatball recipe from Jill O’Brien of Wild Idea Buffalo. The first two were made of Ground Buffalo and this one is made with Buffalo Italian Sausage, which can be purchased on line at the Wild Idea Buffalo web site.

Italian Buffalo Meatballs (Makes 20 to 24 meatballs)


1 lb. Buffalo Italian Sausage

¼ cup basil, chopped

¼ cup sundried tomatoes, chopped

2 cloves garlic, minced

4 oz. mozzarella cheese, shredded

2 teaspoons butter

1 medium onion, diced

1 tablespoon sugar

1 teaspoon fennel


1) Mix basil, sundried tomatoes, garlic and cheese together.

2) In sauce pan over medium high heat, heat oil. Add onions, sugar and fennel and sauté until slightly caramelized. Transfer to plate and allow to cool before adding to other ingredients.

3) Crumble ground buffalo meat into other ingredients. Mix thoroughly with hands.

4) Place mixture in food processor and flash pulse process, until slightly sticky. Allow meat mixture to rest 2 to 24 hours before cooking. This can be done before or after making meatballs.

5) Form into 1 oz. or desired size meatballs and place on lightly oiled baking sheet.

6) Broil meatballs in oven on middle rack, until browned, about 5 minutes.

Serve warm. Great by themselves or serve with marinara on a bed of creamy risotto.
