Buffalo Blue Burgers

Course Entrée
Cuisine American


  • 4 Tablespoons butter cut into small pieces
  • 1/3 Cup hot sauce
  • 1/2 Cup Finely crumbled blue cheese
  • 1 Tablespoon garlic minced
  • 2 lbs. Ground beef or bison
  • 1/2 Teaspoon Celery seeds
  • 1/3 Cup Onions finely chopped
  • 6 Hamburger buns


  • Melt butter in a pan over low heat, whisk in hot sauce. Mix blue cheese and garlic in a small bowl. Using your hands, gently mix beef or bison, celery seed, onion and 1/4 C. hot sauce mixture in a medium bowl until blended. Form meat into 12 patties about 4-1/2 inches in diameter and no more than 1/2-inch thick. Spoon about 2 tsp. of cheese/garlic mixture into the center of 6 patties. Top with remaining patties and press together, sealing edges. (It’s very important to make sure the edges are sealed well.) Cover and refrigerate for a few hours. Heat grill to medium and oil grate. Grill burgers about 4-5 minutes on each side, or until cooked to taste. Brush with remaining hot sauce mixture during the last 2 minutes of cooking. Serve on buns.
