These are great party snacks or appetizers. I came up with these as a low calorie, healthy snack that explodes with great flavor. They are simple to make and will surely be a hit with your family and guests. I used fresh chicken breast as the meat to keep the calories down. Fresh vegetables to give it a crisp texture and blue cheese crumbles to bring the fat that’s required to complete the balls. I paired these with a delicious yet simple sour cream sauce.
2 chicken breasts
1/2 cup celery (Brunoise)
1/2 cup onion (Brunoise)
1 large egg
1/4 cup skim milk
2 pieces of white bread (cubed with crust cut off)
1/2 cup Blue cheese crumbles
1 Tbsp chopped parsley
2 tsp hot sauce (optional)
Grind chicken breast through the fine die in your meat grinder or use a food processor and pulse until course ground. add celery, onion, blue cheese. In a separate bowl whisk eggs and milk together then add cubed bread and hot sauce. Allow to soak for 5 min. Combine the bread mixture and meat and gently fold them together until well combined.
Roll into 1 1/2″ balls and set on a sheet tray spaced 1/4 apart. Bake for 20 minutes at 350°F or until done.
Spicy sour cream sauce.
This sauce brings a little heat with the coolness of sour cream. A great companion for these balls.
1 cup sour cream or plain yogurt
2 Tbsp hot sauce
Mix first 2 ingredients and refrigerate for 20 minutes. Add S&P to taste
