But please forgive me for trying to catch up on regular-legged life and neglecting my kitchenly duties. My sister and I have consisted on chicken burgers, buffalo chicken dip, and salsa the past couple of weeks, oops. Which brings me to today's topic, the epic combination of our favorite go to dinners inspired by Jenny of Jenny's Cookbook: Buffalo Turkey Burgers! This girl is awesome - mom of two with tons of inspiring recipes, drool-worthy desserts, and creative crafts to do with her girls. I know I will be coming back to try these Yazdi Cupcakes, the inside of the cake looks incredible!
When I saw her recipe for Buffalo Chicken Meatloaf and the story of the meat balls being turned into meatloaf, I was instantly inspired to make her meatloaf into a burger! My store ran out of chicken, so I chose lean ground turkey. I added my usual grated onion and garlic to the burger base, took out the typical meatloaf ingredients, and went to town with the buffalo sauce! Instead of adding melted butter to the meat, I cooked the burgers in a little butter and then recreated the melted butter - buffalo sauce combo to toast up the buns in the pan. An easy sauce of bleu cheese, lemon juice, and sour cream with thinly sliced celery and red onion topped the burgers.
The result? A spicy bleu cheesy mess of a burger that evokes all of the best parts of buffalo wings and Jenny's meatloaf. Thanks for the inspiration!
And for some more inspiration....
