Buffalo chicken meatball sandwich recipe

Yields 5


For the meatballs:

  • 1 pound ground chicken
  • 1 egg
  • 4 ounces mozzarella cheese, grated
  • 1/2 cup grated carrot
  • 1/2 cup panko breadcrumbs
  • 1/2 cup rolled or quick oats
  • 1/2 cup bottled ranch dressing
  • 1/2 cup Frank's RedHot Sauce

For the sandwiches:

  • 5 sandwich rolls or buns
  • Frank's RedHot Sauce
  • 4 ounces cheddar cheese, grated
  • Ranch dressing


For the meatballs:

  1. Preheat oven to 500 degrees F. Line a large baking sheet with parchment paper.
  2. In a large bowl, add all of the meatball ingredients. Using your hands, mix until combined.
  3. Shape meatball mixture into balls, about 2 tablespoons each. Place on the prepared baking sheet. Bake for 12-15 minutes, until cooked through. Remove meatballs but leave oven on.

To assemble:

  1. Slice the rolls in half and top with three to four meatballs. Drizzle on more hot sauce, if desired. Top with a small handful of cheddar cheese.
  2. Place on a baking sheet with the top half of the roll cut side up next to the bottom portion of the sandwich. Repeat with remaining sandwiches.
  3. Place sandwiches back in the oven until the cheese has melted and the bread is beginning to brown at the edges, about 5 minutes.
  4. Serve with extra ranch dressing and hot sauce.
