Blue cheese or ranch dressing atop a turkey buffalo burger, yes please! Mr.Picky loves spicy food, and loves burgers. I tried this recipe out a couple of years ago and have continued to put it into dinner rotation. If you have children it is ok, just don’t dip the burgers in the sauce at the end. This recipe came out of Rachel Ray 365: No Repeats cookbook. Mr.Picky prefers to eat these as little sliders on a small french roll. The burger size depends on what we have to put them on, in the picture we served full size burgers on a crusty bun.
Buffalo Turkey Burger:
- A drizzle of olive oil
- 1 package (20 oz.) ground turkey breast
- 1 1/2 tsp poultry seasoning
- 1 Tbs grill seasonings, like Montreal Steak Seasoning
- 2 garlic cloves, grated or chopped
- 4 scallions, finely chopped
- 1 celery rib with greens, finely chopped
- 2 Tbs butter
- 1/4 cup buffalo sauce, we use Frank’s Red Hot
Blue Cheese Topping:
- 1 cup sour cream
- 1/2 cup blue cheese
- Salt and Pepper to taste
In a small bowl combine sour cream, blue cheese and salt and pepper. Set aside in fridge while making burgers. If you do not care for blue cheese, simple use ranch.
Drizzle about a tablespoon of oil in a mixing bowl and burger ingredients. Form into patties, depending on size of bun.
In a nonstick skillet over medium-high heat cook the burgers for about 6 minutes on each side, again depending size. Either transfer all burgers to a plate or in a separate pan prepare your buffalo dipping sauce.
Melt butter on low and add the buffalo sauce. Dip patties in the sauce mixture until coated.
Place burger on bottom bun and top with lettuce and blue cheese dip.
