Buffalo Sauce Burgers Stuffed With Blue Cheese

Recipe by GaylaJ
READY IN: 45mins


  • 4
    tablespoons butter, cut in small pieces
  • 13
    cup mild hot sauce (they mentioned Durkee, I used Frank's RedHot)
  • 12
    cup finely crumbled blue cheese
  • 1
    tablespoon minced garlic (you may want to use less if you're not a big fan of garlic)
  • 2
    lbs 85% lean ground beef or 2 lbs ground buffalo meat
  • 12
    teaspoon celery seed
  • 13
    cup finely chopped onion
  • 6
    hamburger buns, split


  • Melt butter and whisk in hot sauce.
  • Mix blue cheese and garlic in a small bowl.
  • Using your hands, gently mix beef (or buffalo), celery seed, onion and 1/4 cup hot sauce mixture in a medium bowl until blended. Form into 12 patties, using a light touch; the patties should be about 4 1/2 inches in diameter and no more than 1/2 inch thick.
  • Spoon about 2 teaspoons of cheese-garlic mixture in center of 6 patties, then top with remaining patties and press together, sealing edges.
  • Cover and refrigerate until ready to grill. (Even if you aren't making these ahead of time, I think they hold together better after a little chill time).
  • Heat grill to medium and oil grate.
  • Grill burgers about 4-5 minutes on each side, or until cooked to taste. (I'll only eat ground beef cooked well, so I cooked a bit longer.) Brush with remaining hot sauce mixture during last 2 minutes of cooking. Toast buns if you like.
  • (I couldn't think of many traditional condiments I wanted on this burger, so I just ate mine with extra buffalo sauce and lettuce).
