Buffalo Turkey Blue Cheese Burger


These burgers were so good! They turned out better than I thought they would and tasted like I was eating buffalo wings. These are inspired from Rachael Rays { The Book of Burger }, let me know what you guys think!



  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 rib celery, very finely chopped
  • 1 carrot, peeled and grated or very finely chopped
  • 1 small onion, grated or very finely chopped
  • 2 cloves garlic, grated or chopped
  • Salt and pepper
  • 2 pounds ground turkey breast
  • 1 rounded tablespoon Old Bay seasoning
  • 1/4 cup hot sauce, such as Frank’s Red Hot brand
  • 1 cup sour cream
  • 1/3 pound blue cheese, crumbled
  • A splash of milk or cream
  • Chopped lettuce, for topping
  • 12 whole wheat slider-size buns


  1. Heat the EVOO in a small skillet over medium-high heat. Add the celery, carrot, onion, garlic, salt and pepper and cook to tender-crisp, 7-8 minutes. Let cool.
  2. Place the cooled vegetables and meat in a bowl. Season with Old Bay, hot sauce, salt and pepper. Mix and form twelve patties and drizzle each with EVOO.
  3. Heat a cast iron griddle or other griddle or grill pan.
