Living in the Buffalo region, we love our chicken wings! We are the home of Frank & Teressa’s Anchor Bar Original Chicken Wings which is the inspiration for my Buffalo Turkey Meatballs. It is a fabulous twist on traditional Meatballs using Anchor Bar Wing Sauce! Chicken Wings are served with carrots and celery which is added to the meatballs for more flavor and moisture! Add a side of blue cheese dressing for dipping and it is hard to stop eating them!
