Buffalo Turkey Burgers

I wanted to BBQ something for supper last night but I didn’t want the usual burger or hot dog. I decided turkey burgers would be a nice change.

When I saw this recipe on Rachel Ray’s site, I knew it was a winner. My in house taste tester loves anything buffalo style so I did these for him!

They have so much flavour. They have a nice kick from the hot sauce and a great texture from the sautéed veggies. We really liked them!

What you need,

1 tbsp. olive oil
2 ribs celery, very finely chopped
1 carrot, peeled and grated
1 small onion, grated
2 cloves garlic, minced
Salt and Pepper
2 lbs. ground turkey breast
1 rounded tbsp. old bay seasoning
¼ cup hot sauce, like Frank’s Red Hot or Buffalo Wing Sauce
1 cup sour cream, you can use low fat if you want
1/3 lb. blue cheese, crumbled
Hamburger buns
Lettuce for serving

Heat the olive oil in a small skillet over medium high heat. Add in the carrot, onion, celery and garlic and cook until tender, about 7-8 minutes. Season with salt and pepper to taste. Set mixture aside to cool.

In a large bowl combine the ground turkey, the cooled sautéed veggies, the old bay seasoning and hot sauce. Form into patties. I put mine in the fridge for an hour or so, I find it helps them stay together on the grill.

In a small bowl combine the sour cream and crumbled blue cheese. Season with salt and pepper to taste. If you find the mixture too thick you can thin it out with a splash of milk.

Cook the burgers on the BBQ or in a grill pan for about 4-5 minutes per side until cooked through.

Serve on a toasted hamburger bun with the blue cheese sauce and some lettuce.

I also served mine with carrot and celery sticks and some homemade tater tots!!
Yep, homemade tots! I will share those with you tomorrow.

  1. Yummy! Looks like a great recipe. I like having burger options that aren't just beef, and turkey is so much healthier! Definitely going to give this a try on the BBQ!
