These sound so good, and don't seem to be too "bad". Can anyone figure out the nutrition info?

Bleu Cheese Stuffed Buffalo Chicken Meatballs

Makes 16 meatballs

Ingredients:
1lb ground chicken breast
1/4 small red onion, grated or minced
2 gloves garlic, microplaned or minced
1 egg white
1/2 cup panko bread crumbs
1 tablespoon powdered Ranch Dip mix
4oz bleu cheese crumbles
2 tablespoons butter
1 cup buffalo wing sauce

Directions:

Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Stir together red onion, garlic, egg white, bread crumbs, and ranch dip mix in a large bowl. Add ground chicken then mix until just combined. Divide mixture into quarters, then each quarter into 4 balls. Press a bleu chees into the center of each ball then close mixture around cheese to seal. Place meatballs onto a non-stick sprayed cooling rack set on top of a baking sheet, then bake for 16-18 minutes, or until cooked through.
Meanwhile, melt butter in a large skillet over medium heat then add buffalo wing sauce and stir to combine. Add cooked meatballs to skillet then use a spoon to coat in sauce. Place a lid on top and turn heat to low to keep warm.

    Is this a pop quiz? Can't you just enter all of that into your recipes and get the nutrition info?

    ETA: It does sound delicious, though.

    Hey OP- you can go to your "food" tab, and go to "recipes," then add all the ingredients and get your information. :) I'd do it, but the recipe thing is on the fritz for me right now.

    Thanks for the calorie info. I don't know how to figure it out through the recipe function. :-(
