Cheese Stuffed Buffalo Turkey Meatballs {Low Carb, Gluten Free & Primal}

Cheese Stuffed Buffalo Turkey Meatballs {Low-Carb & Primal}Occasionally I get really envious of people who create fun and exciting weekly meal plans and then go shopping for ingredients. That’s not how things work here…. We keep our freezer stocked with bulk purchases of pasture raised meats and wild hunted venison, we eat in-season veggies & fruits (or those that we’ve put up from the previous season). Rarely do we eat fresh zucchini outside of when it’s growing in our summertime back yard garden, so of course I’m envious of zoodles in December.

My meal planing starts by browsing my freezer for what looks good or in the case of ground turkey – what I have a bunch of and needs used up. And then I pair that protein with other goodies on hand…..

By accident (truth) I ordered extra blue cheese from our recent Azure Standard drop, so that’s been also lingering in the back of my mind to use up…

I got my creative juices flowing and had a great idea, let’s make Buffalo Turkey Meatballs.

For the Meatballs:

Cheese Stuffing:

  • 1/2 pound mozzarella cheese cut into 24 cubes or cheddar

Optional toppings & sides


  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees F
  • Combine all meatball ingredients together and mix well. Let sit for 5 minutes.
  • Divide meatball mixture into 24 equal portions. Roll into a ball around a piece of cheese, covering completely.
  • Bake at 350 for 20-25 minutes or just until the cheese is melted. (it's normal that I little might seep out)
  • Remove from oven and lightly toss in additional hot sauce, if desired. The meatballs are flavor packed without the extra sauce, so it's not necessary. Serve with blue cheese dressing for dipping and celery sticks.

  1. These were spectacular, thank you! I ended up using ground turkey just because the ground chicken was more difficult to come by. Resulting meatballs were delicious and I almost regretted the act of dousing them in buffalo sauce because it masked the medley of flavors within. This is, of course, a good problem to have, but I definitely wanted to review and say thank you for adding this to my repertoire in the kitchen!

  2. Oh these really do sound good! They will be on my table soon! And let me add, eating veggies etc in season and putting up to eat out of season is the right way to go, so don’t be envious of anyone eating wrong! You set a good example for all of us!!
