Ingredients

FOR THE PUFF PASTRY AND MEATBALLS

  • 1 Puff Pastry Sheet , thawed
  • 24 frozen , fully cooked Reduced Fat Turkey Meatballs
  • 1 cup hot buffalo sauce (Frank's Red Hot is what I like to use)
  • 1 tablespoon apple cider vinegar

FOR THE BLEU CHEESE DRESSING

  • 3/4- cup non-fat plain yogurt
  • 1 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 teaspoon white vinegar
  • 1 teaspoon Dijon mustard
  • 2 tablespoons reduced fat crumbled blue cheese
  • salt and fresh ground pepper , to taste

Instructions 

  • Preheat oven to 400F.
  • Unfold the thawed pastry sheet on a lightly floured surface and using a rolling pin, roll the pastry sheet into a 10 x 15-inch rectangle.
  • Cut the sheet into 24 small squares.
  • Press the pastry squares into 24 mini muffin pan cups.
  • Bake for 15 minutes, or until golden brown.

In the meantime, prepare the meatballs.

  • Combine hot sauce and apple cider vinegar in a nonstick pan.
  • Add 24 turkey meatballs to the sauce and bring to a boil; cover with a lid and reduce to a simmer; cook for 15 minutes.

Prepare the Lightened-Up Bleu Cheese Dressing

  • Combine yogurt, olive oil, vinegar, mustard, bleu cheese, salt, and ground pepper in a mixing bowl; whisk everything together until thoroughly combined. Set aside.
  • Remove pan from oven and transfer puff pastry shells to a serving plate.
  • Place 1 meatball inside each puff pastry cup.
  • Drizzle each meatball with some of the hot sauce left over in the pan.
  • Top each meatball with 1 teaspoon bleu cheese dressing.
  • Serve.
