Buffalo Turkey Burgers

1 pound ground turkey
1 stalk of celery, finely chopped
1/2 teaspoon garlic salt
1/2 teaspoon pepper
1/2 cup buffalo wing sauce, divided
4 to 6 tablespoons blue cheese dressing or ranch dressing
4 hamburger buns

In large bowl, combine turkey, celery, garlic salt, pepper, and 1/4 cup buffalo wing sauce.

Mix well. divide the meat mixture into 4 sections.  

Make 4 turkey patties.  

Grill over medium high heat until cooked through.  
Basting with the buffalo wing sauce while it is cooking. 

You may want to grill them on a sheet of aluminum foil sprayed with non stick cooking spray if they are too soft to place straight on the grill.

Place the patties on hamburger buns.  I like to toast mine first.  

Spread dressing on top of burgers.  Makes 4 servings.

I broke one on the most important steps when you make a recipe!  I found the recipe on Gingerlock's Kitchen several weeks ago and I couldn't wait to try it.  Instead of going back and rereading the recipe, I tried to make it from memory.  I always tell people to be sure and read the recipe before you, make it and I broke that rule!

I added the celery to the turkey meat.  On Jordan's blog Gingerlock's Kitchen, she puts it on top of the burger along with the dressing.  My husband is not a big celery fan and would never had but them on the burger, so by mixing it in, I tricked him into eating it.  The celery also made the burgers really juicy.  So I guess it was a good mistake to make.

Thanks Jordan for the recipe!  We loved it and will be making it again and again!

My new cookbook is available at schools, businesses, hospitals, and book fairs in cities across the United States.  Be sure to pick up a copy or two, when you see them.  They make great gifts!

  1. Haha! You sneaky lady! I will have to try this out with the celery on the inside next time. SO glad you liked it!

  2. I saw a version of a buffalo chicken burger this week and they had two pieces of celery (about the size in your picture) between the bun and the burger. I just couldn't picture biting through two big honking celery sticks in the middle of a burger. I like celery but keep it to the side like you did:)
