Combining all the amazing elements that we think of when daydreaming about the combination of buffalo sauce and chicken, from celery and carrots to blue cheese, this burger encompasses it all (and just in time for football season might I add!)

  • 1/2 red onion (finely chopped)
  • 1 garlic clove (crushed)

  • 1 tsp paprika
  • 1/4 cup blue cheese dressing
  • 1/4 cup blue cheese crumbles
  • 6 hamburger buns

Optional Toppings

  • tomatoes (sliced)
  • baby spinach

Next, place on the grill over medium heat for 8-10 minutes per side.

While the burgers are on the grill combine the additional 1/4 cup buffalo sauce with 1/4 cup blue cheese dressing.

Toast the buns, then spread the mixture onto each side of the bun.

Remove the burgers from the grill and place onto the bun.  Top with the blue cheese crumbles and any desired additional ingredients.

The burger is super flavorful and packs a bit of a punch while the blue cheese cools down the spiciness and adds a layer of creaminess.
