Bodaciously Bold Buffalo Wing Turkey Burgers
My teenage son loves buffalo wings. As a mom concerned about nutrition, I can find no redeeming nutritional qualities for wings. I came up with this recipe which satifies us both: the buffalo wing taste he craves with a higher protien and lower fat content for me! They are a favorite at my house!
1 package (1.6 oz) buffalo wing seasoning mix
3/4 Cup shredded cheddar cheese
1 1/2 lbs. ground turkey
1/2 Cup cream cheese
1/4 Cup ranch salad dressing
1/4 Cup buffalo wing sauce
6 hamburger buns
Mix the ground turkey with cheddar cheese and buffalo wing seasoning mix. Form into 6 patties with a slight indentation in the center for even cooking. Place cream cheese, ranch salad dressing, and buffalo wing sauce in a grill proof sauce pan. Heat over medium-high grill, stirring occasionally until cream cheese is melted. Remove pan from grill and keep warm. Oil grill grates and place burgers on grill and cook 6-8 minutes/side or until center is no longer pink. To serve, place hot burgers on hamburger buns. Spoon a generous portion of cream cheese sauce over burgers. Cover with top bun and enjoy!
This tends to be quite spicy! The heat can be toned down a bit with a mild wing sauce in the topping.
