Buffalo Sauce Burgers with Blue Cheese Celery Slaw
Making the most of the last days of summer with these delicious Buffalo Sauce Burgers with Blue Cheese Celery Slaw. In a summery kind of way, the burgers spice things up with just a bit of heat and the slaw helps cool things off, perfectly balanced.
What tastes best with buffalo sauce? Blue cheese and celery of course! And this burger has it all! This trifecta of flavors is a taste-sensation for your tastebuds.
For me, it is mandatory that buffalo anything be served with celery and blue cheese. To start, buffalo sauce is mixed into the burger meat. Then, to cool your palette, a crispy coleslaw with celery mixed with blue cheese dressing, PLUS, extra blue cheese for good measure (which never hurts).
Blue cheese dressing is an easy and tasty sauce for coleslaw. If you like to make your own (as I do, and it’ sooooo simple to make), try my Chunky Blue Cheese Dressing.
To make easy work of the coleslaw (if my store has it) I buy pre-shredded cabbage and add my own sliced celery. The celery adds a lovely fresh flavor and needed crunch.
I typically don’t mix anything with my burger meat unless it’s to flavor the meat. This is the case with my Chipotle Chicken Burger and Caramelized Red Pepper & Onion Burger.
I primarily use beef for these burgers, but ground turkey or chicken would also be delicious if that’s your preference.
