Buffalo Turkey Burgers with Blue Cheese 'Slaw

Looking for a new way to spice up turkey burgers?  Look no more!  This buffalo turkey burger with blue cheese slaw is the perfect way to spice up that boring 'ol burger.  The little kick you get from the burger mixed with the cool creaminess of the slaw makes this burger the perfect summer time sandwich.

I wanted to grill mine (which I suggest to do) but surprise, surprise!  It was RAINING once again.  Seriously, why is Florida known as the Sunshine State?!  That is a complete false statement! Alright, I'm sorry.  Back on track.  I did grill mine on the George Forman grill but I would recommend grilling them to get that yummy, summer time taste to it.


For the slaw:
For the burgers:
  • 1 Package lean ground turkey ( I prefer extra lean )
  • 1 Tbsp. diced onion
  • 1/4 Cup hot sauce
  • Salt & pepper
  • 1 Tsp. garlic powder
  • 1 1/4 Cup shredded cheddar cheese
  • 5 Whole wheat hamburger buns


In a medium bowl combine broccoli slaw and the blue cheese dressing and mix until well combined.  Set in the fridge until ready to use.

In a large bowl, combine ground turkey, diced onion, hot sauce, garlic powder, and a pinch of salt and pepper.  Make 5 equal size patties.

Cook patties on the grill or in a skillet until cooked through.  Add 1/4 shredded cheddar to each burger and heat until melted.  

Place patty on a whole wheat bun and top with blue cheese slaw and drizzle with extra hot sauce for more of a kick.
