    Nice start, but I had to play with the spices a bit to suit my taste. Subbed the onion powder for chopped scallions for color as well as flavor. Instead of meatballs, I formed the meat mixture into patties and topped them with the blue cheese so it would melt. Served on toasted buns with hot sauce on the side.

    Followed to the letter and turned out pretty blah. Think it could use a lot more seasoning in the meat.

    Very quick and easy to make. Honestly my expectations were low when I was rolling them into meatballs, because they looked so gross 😂. But they turned out delicious and were a hit with everyone. Will definitely be making them again!

    love this recipe!!! Didn't have celery, so I swapped for minced onions and used a mix of hot and barbeque sauces.

    They came out good. Next time in place of the crumbley blue cheese. I would serve it with blue cheese dressing to dip.

    Turned out good. Next time I’d opt to make the balls smaller (closer to 1oz)
