I’ve made a whole bunch of Buffalo-flavored poultry burgers. Most were kinda on the complicated side. They had all sorts of ingredients packed into the patties in an attempt to keep them from drying out. These Buffalo turkey burgers with blue cheese slaw are much easier. There aren’t 40 ingredients. Yet, they come out delicious, moist, and tender. And of course, packed with traditional Buffalo wing flavors.

Buffalo Turkey Burgers with Blue Cheese Slaw

Nice And Messy

Don’t over look the slaw on these Buffalo turkey burgers with blue cheese slaw. It’s fantastic. Packed with blue cheese flavors. Save the slaw recipe for any time you want a different kind of slaw. It’d be great on grilled brats too. And sure, if you’re in to carrots and that whole Buffalo theme thing, add a few diced carrots into the slaw too. They’ll add some crunchiness and color too.

I like to use a burger press when I make burgers. It, in combination with some patty papers, enables me to crank out a whole bunch of equally-sized burger patties in no time at all with little cleanup.

Turkey can be a bit sticky. When I make the patties I use patty paper below and on top of the patties before I press them.

Also try my apple maple turkey burger.

Instructions

For the Blue Cheese Slaw

  • Place all ingredients except for the celery and celery leaves into a bowl. Whisk until combined.
  • Add the celery. Stir. Refrigerate until ready to use.

For the Burgers

  • Place turkey, bread crumbs, milk, and salt into a medium bowl. Using your hands combine the mixture. Do not over-mix.
  • Divide the mixture into 4 equally-sized patties. They'll be just over 5 ounces each.
  • Fire up your grill for medium-high heat.
  • Toast the buns if desired.
  • Transfer patties to the grill and grill for 5 minutes per side or until the internal temperature reaches 160 F.
  • Assemble burgers by first brushing the insides of the bun tops and bottoms with the Buffalo sauce. Now is not the time to be shy with it.
  • Top the bun bottom with a turkey patty. Spoon the blue cheese slaw on top.
  • Add the bun top and serve… with lots of napkins!
