Buffalo Turkey Burger

Ingredients

  1. For the buffalo sauce:
    5 tablespoons unsalted butter, divided
    3 garlic cloves, minced
    1 tablespoon cayenne pepper
    1 tablespoon lemon juice
    3 tablespoons white wine vinegar
  1. For the blue cheese slaw:
    2 tablespoons 2% low-fat Greek yogurt
    2 tablespoons buttermilk
    1/4 teaspoon onion powder
    1/8 teaspoon celery seed
    2 teaspoons dried parsley
    2 tablespoons blue cheese crumbles
    2 celery stalks, diced
    1/2 large carrot, peeled and shredded
    1/2 cup red cabbage, shredded
    1/4 green apple, julienned
  1. For the turkey patties:
    2 tablespoons Panko breadcrumbs
    2 tablespoons buttermilk
    1 pound ground turkey, like Jennie-O® lean ground turkey
    1 tablespoon buffalo sauce
    1/4 cup green onion, diced
    1 teaspoon garlic powder
    1 teaspoon onion powder
    1 tablespoon olive oil
  1. For the burger:
    Whole grain hamburger bun, toasted
    4 ounce turkey patty
    1/4 cup blue cheese slaw
    1 lettuce leaf
    1 tomato slice
    1 teaspoon buffalo sauce

Directions

  1. To make buffalo sauce: In a small sauce pan over medium heat, melt 1 tablespoon of the butter. Add garlic and cayenne and stir until fragrant, about 30 seconds. Add lemon juice and white wine vinegar and simmer about 1 minute. Add remaining butter to spice mixture and stir until melted. Remove from heat and allow sauce to cool slightly.
  2. In a blender or small food processor, blend sauce on high for about 2 minutes until fully combined. Set aside.
  3. To make blue cheese slaw: In a medium mixing bowl, combine all slaw ingredients until all vegetables are coated.
  4. To make turkey burgers: In a small bowl combine breadcrumbs and buttermilk. Let stand for 1 minute.
  5. In a large bowl, combine JENNIE-O® lean ground turkey with the breadcrumb mixture, buffalo sauce, green onion, garlic, and onion powders. Gently stir until just combined, being careful not to over mix. Shape turkey mixture into 4 1/2 inch patties and set aside.
  6. Heat a large rimmed skillet or grill pan over medium-high heat and coat with olive oil. Toast buns in oil and remove from heat. Then cook turkey patties about 4 to 5 minutes on each side and until their internal temperature reaches 165°F.
  7. Arrange burgers on the toasted buns starting with the lettuce, then tomato, patty, blue cheese slaw, and buffalo sauce.
