Buffalo Turkey Burgers

My friend Beth asked me if I had made these yet. I forgot that I hadn't posted about them! I actually did take a picture, but I accidentally deleted it off of my camera. :( But, I'll tell you about them anyhow!

I used 1 lb ground turkey, and mixed it with buffalo wing sauce (I used Frank's Red Hot). I just poured it in until the meat was a nice bright orange color, but not too soft and squishy. Maybe 1/4-1/3 C? Then I added a bit of blue cheese crumbles to the meat mixture. I didn't over do it, since I didn't want the burgers to fall apart. I also added some bread crumbs to help the mix stick together. I salted and peppered it, then shaped it into patties. Mike grilled them, and then we served them with Ranch dressing (bleu cheese would probably be even better), more bleu cheese crumbles, and lettuce. Mike and I both loved them, and he doesn't even like turkey burgers! I'll definitely be making these again. And hopefully, I'll keep the picture next time! :)

I can't do spicy stuff, but I know that my hubby would love this idea. Perhaps I'll season up one this way the next time I feel like burgers. Thanks for the idea!

That sounds really good. We eat turkey all the time! I'll have to try this next time I'm in the mood for a little zesty burger.

Totally yummy...and super easy! They would be good with carrot sticks on the side, I think. :) And a nice cold beer, of course!

That sounds quite yummy! I do love buffalo anything. There is something great about the spicy-vinegary taste of it! YUM!
