We’re down the wire and at the edges of our seats hoping our favorite football teams make it to the end. It gets intense towards the end of the season for football fans everywhere. No matter which team you’re routing for this year, these Buffalo Blue Cheese Meatball Cups recipe will make game day an easy win for your friends and family.
It’s time to get your football party ideas together to go out with a big bang. These easy to make meatball appetizers are perfect to make for a crowd. With the help of your slow cooker and Cooked Perfect Meatballs from the freezer section at your local grocer, making something delicious is simple. Find Cooked Perfect near you here. Instead of spending all day rolling out your own meatballs, take the easy way out! Cooked Perfect Meatballs are packed with flavor because they’re crafted with select meats and real cheeses.

For a hearty bite and a lot of flavor, I used Cooked Perfect Italian Style Meatballs that are 1 oz. “Dinner Sized” for this recipe. They say “go big or go home” and these hearty appetizers fit the bill for snacking on during an intense game of football. You can choose from your favorite flavors like Homestyle or Swedish and even varieties like Turkey and Chicken meatballs.
Buffalo Blue Cheese Meatball Cups Recipe
To prepare this recipe in time for the big game, add the meatballs in the slow cooker until they’re cooked through. I added buffalo sauce in with the Italian Style Meatballs, extra easy. Cook for up for 3-4 hours on low and give them a few stirs throughout the cooking process. Then, when they’re done cooking, turn off the heat and stir in blue cheese dressing to get the party started.
For the perfect meatball holder, we’re using thick frozen garlic bread baked using a muffin tin to form cups. By defrosting the garlic bread, you’ll be able to shape them easily. I just love creating delicious meals and appetizers using muffin tins and my family enjoys trying them out. So many fun possibilities.
Once the meatballs are made to perfection and the garlic bread cups are ready, it’s time to make the magic happen. Spoon a meatball and sauce into each bread cup.
Sprinkle some shredded mozzarella cheese over the top.
For an added pop of flavor and color, you can add chopped chives or green onion too. This seriously compliments all the flavors and makes these meatball cups extra pretty to look at.
