Buffalo Chicken Burgers.
We have a new favorite meal.
And yes, I said “we.”
I know that you may think that our “meals” consist of Mr. How Sweet chomping on steak while I munch chocolate-covered bacon.
And while that is mostly true, I do need some real food every once in awhile.
Perfect with a side of celery and bacon ranch dressing.
Obviously I didn’t eat the celery since green veggies make me cry, but I did taste the bacon ranch dressing.
Like that was even in question.
The burgers were so delicious.
It is rare that I want meat, but I practically devoured this.
I was afraid Mr. How Sweet wouldn’t like it. I’m not sure why. I guess I thought that it may scare him off since it is not regular old burgers like he is used to. When it comes to meat, the man doesn’t like change.
But he loved them too. In fact, his word was “obsessed.” And he is not nearly as dramatic as I am.
So I knew they had to be great.
Buffalo Chicken Burgers
makes 4-6 burgers
1 lb ground chicken breast
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon pepper
1/2 tablespoon italian seasoning
1/4 cup buffalo wing sauce
1/2 cup parmesan cheese
2 ounces sharp cheddar cheese
bacon ranch dressing + buffalo wing sauce for topping
4-6 whole wheat buns
Preheat grill or skillet.
In a large bowl combine ground chicken, salt, pepper, italian seasoning, parmesan and buffalo wing sauce. Mix until just combined. Form into patties.
Grill or pan-fry patties until brown on both sides and cooked through, about 8-10 minutes. In the last 2 minutes, place 1/2 ounce of cheddar cheese on each burger. Place burgers on whole wheat buns and top with a drizzle of bacon ranch (I used Kraft) and buffalo wing dressing.
Don’t worry, that is just buffalo wing sauce and bacon ranch dressing spilling out of the side up there. No need to run away in fear. Unless you are running to make these. Which is something I highly suggest.
