These Buffalo wing burgers are further proof that chicken or turkey burgers do not have to be boring or bland. These are definitely our go-to no-beef burgers. A little spiciness, tender patties, and oh, my favorite, Buffalo wing flavor. Topped with a dressing that is both sweet and spicy. Perfect! I’ve already made these Buffalo wing burgers several times. We absolutely love them. So far, I have only made them with ground turkey, since we prefer the texture of ground turkey over chicken. Well, that and ground turkey has been on sale lately!
I have to admit, I was pretty skeptical making this apple maple turkey burger. Sure, I’ve had a few turkey burgers in my time, but I can’t remember any of them. On the other hand, I can remember lots of the beef burgers I’ve had. I was pretty sure this wasn’t going to be a very memorable burger either. And I was wrong. Very wrong.
The apple sauce and maple syrup really make this burger fantastic. It is moist and tender and oh so flavorful. It is topped with applewood-smoked burger and a great sauce that I am going to use on regular beef burgers too. So much so that I made these twice in two days.
