I’ve professed my love for buffalo chicken several times on this blog, but I’ve shown great restraint in not writing about it for quite some time now.
I made buffalo chicken meatballs not too long ago and those were delicious, so I figured I’d translate those tasty bites into a whole burger. I was not disappointed. I took it one step further and replaced the feta cheese stuffed into the meatballs with a cream cheese and blue cheese mixture for the burgers. They made my guests’ eyes roll with delight.
Stuffed Buffalo Chicken Burgers
1 lb ground chicken or turkey
1/2 white onion, minced
1 stalk celery, finely diced
1/4 cup hot sauce or buffalo sauce
4 oz cream cheese
4 oz blue cheese, crumbled
Salt and pepper to taste
Cheddar cheese, sliced
Gently mix chicken or turkey, onion, celery, hot sauce and buffalo sauce well to combine. Form into 8 thin patties.
Mix cream cheese, blue cheese, salt and pepper. Divide into fourths.
Place 1/4 of cream cheese mixture between two patties, crimp the edges to seal. Continue with remaining patties and cream cheese mixture.
Grill, cooking completely, about 4 minutes each side. Top with cheddar cheese slices and more buffalo sauce, if desired.
