Buffalo Chicken Burgers

Blue Cheese Buffalo Chicken Burgers

It’s been a record-breaking 3 months since I posted a recipe involving one of my favorite ingredients, the almighty buffalo sauce… I would say it’s time for a reappearance!

Here for you today is the ultimate Buffalo Chicken Burger.

Buffalo Chicken Burgers with Buffalo Potato Salad

Combining all the amazing elements that we think of when daydreaming about the combination of buffalo sauce and chicken, from celery and carrots to blue cheese, this burger encompasses it all (and just in time for football season might I add!)

Buffalo Chicken Burger Ingredients

Ingredients

  • 1 lb ground chicken (You can purchase already ground chicken in the grocery store or use 2 chicken breasts and grind them in the food processor like I did!)
  • 1 celery stalk (finely chopped)
  • 1 carrot stick (peeled and shredded)
  • 1/2 red onion (finely chopped)
  • 1 garlic clove (crushed)
  • 1 egg
  • 1/2 cup franks red-hot buffalo sauce
  • 1/2 cup breadcrumbs
  • 1 tbsp chili powder
  • 1 tsp paprika
  • 1/4 cup blue cheese dressing
  • 1/4 cup blue cheese crumbles
  • 6 hamburger buns

Optional Toppings

  • tomatoes (sliced)
  • baby spinach
  • red bell peppers (diced)
  • green onions (diced)

Start by combining the ground chicken, celery, carrots, red onion and garlic in a large mixing bowl.

Next, place on the grill over medium heat for 8-10 minutes per side.

While the burgers are on the grill combine the additional 1/4 cup buffalo sauce with 1/4 cup blue cheese dressing.

Toast the buns, then spread the mixture onto each side of the bun.

Remove the burgers from the grill and place onto the bun.  Top with the blue cheese crumbles and any desired additional ingredients.

The burger is super flavorful and packs a bit of a punch while the blue cheese cools down the spiciness and adds a layer of creaminess.

Buffalo Potato Wedges or Spicy Buffalo Macaroni Salad would also be perfect with this dish!

All Star Buffalo Cheesesteak and Hell Fries, Oh My!

Boston, Cambridge, Sandwich, Bar, All Star, Massachusetts, Front, Sign

After discovering Boston Magazine’s article on the amazing Grillo’s Pickles, I went on past the article I originally attended to read on the best burgers in Boston and continued on to the best fries in Boston.

Just 2 blocks down from Grillo’s was one of Boston’s best french fry spots. This spot was the All Star Sandwich Bar where they’re serving up delicious fried potatoes known as Hell Fries.

These cayenne pepper, cilantro and hot sauce topped fries live up to their hellish name. Order an extra ice-cold beverage on the side, you’re gonna need it!

Although I am a glutton for delicious, spicy potatoes, I knew I shouldn’t lunch on them alone. I decided to take a peak over at the sandwich menu,  I mean the name of the spot is All Star Sandwich Bar, they must make some pretty killer sandwiches. And do they ever.  I wanted to try one of each! Fried Poblano Cheeseburger, BBQ Fried Chicken Bacon Melt, American Fondue Cheeseburger, how would I pick just one?

Upon the recommendation from my excellent server Brad and my crazy obsessive love for Buffalo sauce I went with the Funky Daily Special Buffalo Cheesesteak BLT. Say what?  A sandwich with multiple meats, blue cheese and buffalo sauce, I’m so in!

I really can not express the excitement and anticipation that overcame me when this sandwich arrived!

And the anticipation was met with overwhelming joy after just one bite.  Crispy bacon, juicy burger, creamy blue cheese and spicy buffalo sauce, quite the perfect combination and balance of amazingness!

They have tons of daily specials that I wish I had more time in Boston to try each one!

If you’re in Boston, check out your favorite daily special and let me know which you think is the best!

I’m thinking Wednesday’s Pastrami-Nater sounds right up my alley! I do have a slight obsession with the almighty pastrami sandwich though!

The decor in this little sandwich shop is cool and casual and the service was excellent. See Brad, awesome server, hard at work!

If you want to break a little sweat with some Hell Fries or chow down on an amazing sandwich special check out All Star Sandwich Bar at 1245 Cambridge St. Cambridge, MA.  To view their entire menu visit their website at: AllStarSandwichBar.
