In my opinion, turkey burgers need to be a little fancy or else they’re a lot of boring. Any time we’re grilling up some turkey burgers, we try and add lots of flavor to our finished product. So, a Buffalo style burger with Buffalo sauce, bleu cheese, Ranch dressing and shredded carrots sounded like the best way to jazz up a basic burger. And bonus…it’s ready and on your table in no time!
This recipe makes four half-pound burgers.
2 pounds of ground turkey
about 3 tablespoons Extra Virgin Olive Oil (EVOO)
a big pinch of salt and pepper
about a 1/2 cup of your favorite Buffalo sauce (you can use more for drizzling if you like!)
about a cup of shredded carrots
1 red onion, chopped
about a cup of bleu cheese crumbles
Drizzles of your favorite Ranch dressing
4 burger buns
Preheat your outdoor grill or indoor grill pan to medium-high heat.
Add the EVOO, salt, pepper and Buffalo sauce to your ground turkey. Divide turkey into four sections and make four patties. Grill patties about 8 minutes per side or until cooked through.
Add your cooked burger patty to your burger bun and then top with shredded carrots, chopped red onion, bleu cheese crumbles and a drizzle of Ranch. Garnish with a little more Buffalo sauce if you like.
Just a basic turkey burger with a flavor boost!
