A note about serious food allergies

What do you get when you mix a buffalo and a turkey? A very confused animal, for starters. But you also get these succulent, delightful meatballs, coated in the sauce of lip-smacking heat. (Or not, you control the sauce!) Ranch-y cauliflower rounds out (get it, rounds out?) a meal that’s got it all - fusion, flavor, and fun. (Or confusion? That poor buffaturkey…)
