I just got this in the mail and it sounded wonderful! Using ingredients that aren't commonly seen in a burger! This was in a newsletter from Good Housekeeping.
- 1⁄4 cup light mayonnaise
- 1⁄4 cup reduced-fat sour cream
- 2 ounces blue cheese, crumbled (about 1/2 cup)
- 2 teaspoons cider vinegar
- 1⁄2 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
- 1 1⁄4 lbs ground chicken or 1 1⁄4 lbs ground turkey
- 1 stalk celery, finely chopped
- 3 tablespoons cayenne pepper sauce
- nonstick cooking spray
- 4 hamburger buns, split and toasted
- lettuce leaf
- carrot, and
- celery rib
- Prepare outdoor grill for direct grilling over medium heat.
- In small bowl, stir mayonnaise, sour cream, blue cheese, vinegar, and Worcestershire until blended.
- Set blue cheese sauce aside (Makes about 3/4 cup.).
- In medium bowl, combine chicken, celery, and cayenne pepper sauce just until blended.
- Shape mixture into four 3/4-inch-thick burgers.
- Spray both sides of burgers with nonstick spray.
- Place burgers on hot grill rack; cook 12 to 14 minutes or just until meat loses its pink color throughout, turning over once.
- Burgers should reach an internal temperature of 170ºF.
- Serve burgers on buns with lettuce and some blue cheese sauce.
- Serve remaining blue cheese sauce with carrot and celery sticks.
- Pass additional cayenne pepper sauce to serve with burgers if you like.
I'm always looking for new ways to dress up my favorite recipes. These were great and I didn't feel near as guilty eating them as I would a fried buffalo chicken sandwich. I added some buffalo wing sauce into the mix instead of the cayenne pepper sauce and used white vinegar instead of cider. These turn out greats. Thank you for the recipe!!
