Buffalo Blue Burger

September 5, 2009

As Labor Day sneaks up on us we decided to say goodbye to summer with a week of burger posts. Enjoy!


~ Mary ~


Usually Red Hot sauce is just that RED HOT, but I’ve got a little trick up my sleeve that gives these burgers a more mellow heat. 


OPEN WIDE!  I tried these with the blue cheese, honey and red hot also mixed into the burger on a few and they did not turn out as well as the plain seasoned burger – they kind of fell apart on the grill.

Buffalo Blue Burger


Blue Cheese Slaw

Mix just before serving so it doesn’t get runny:

3 Celery Stalks sliced thin and on the bias

3 Cups Shredded Cabbage or Cabbage Mix

1/2 – 1 Cup Blue Cheese

1/2 Cup Ranch Dressing

Fresh Ground Black Pepper


Red Hot Sauce

In heavy saucepan over medium low heat combine:

1/2 Cup Red Hot Sauce

1/4 Cup Butter

1/4 Cup Honey

1 Tbsp Corn Starch

Simmer until thickened



2 Pounds Ground Pork, Beef, Chicken or Turkey

2 Tbsp Minced Garlic

1 tsp Kosher Salt

Fresh Ground Pepper to taste

4-6 Burger Buns

Mix together all but the buns.

Divide into 4 large or 6 average sized burgers.

Broil or grill 6-7 minutes on each side

Let sit a couple minutes then dunk them into the sauce.

Serve on toasted bun topped with Blue Cheese Slaw

    We’re totally obsessed with Frank’s Sauce at our house and I can’t wait to try these burgers! I just wish BBQ season wasn’t coming to an end!

    Great looking burger. You always come up with great ones. But i love this one in particular because it’s spicy. I love buffalo sauce.

      awe shucks – thank you!
      wouldn’t you know – I saved the BEST for last! Out of all of these burgers this one is the one I’ve been dreaming about and almost made it again this weekend, but John took me out for pizza instead.

    Wow, another burger recipe. I love the combinations of this one. Actually, it’s hard to choose from the burgers you’ve made. They’re all good.

    Love, love, love bleu cheese combined with something spicy! It really makes the overall flavor so much more complete.

    Another great one—the slaw looks incredible piled high atop the burger.

    I looooove buffalo wings. I the idea of a burger slathered in buffalo sauce makes me just plain drool…. wonderful!

    The burger looks awesome and the “red sauce” sounds great. But that cole salw recipe is moving to the top of my “got to make” list.

    LOL, I was reading this and mentioned to my partner that cole slaw on a hamburger sounded a little weird, but when I mentioned blue cheese cole slaw, he wants to try that, so we’ll be having these burgers soon!

    These are the best burgers that I have ever had. I made them for my family and they all requested the recipe and we have had them many times since! Delicious!

    Wow! This burger is delicious! For fun we used a ranch dressing infused with bacon in the coleslaw.

    We substituted chicken instead of beef. A touch of maple syrup to the hot sauce calmed it down for my family’s mid-western taste buds. Fun blend of flavors! Thanks Mary!
