Buffalo & Blue Cheese Turkey Patties
These delicious little buffalo patties are like a combination between a meatball and a burger. They certainly could be served on a bun, but in an effort to avoid excess carbs, I served them up on a simple bed of lettuce. They are bursting with flavor and are filling and satisfying!
Makes about 10 small-sized patties.
- 1 package Jennie-O lean ground turkey
- 1 yellow onion, diced
- 1 cup celery, diced
- 1 egg
- 1/2 cup plain bread crumbs
- 1/2 cup Frank’s Red Hot
- 1/4 cup crumbled blue cheese
- ~3 tbsp vegetable oil
- garlic salt/black pepper
Begin by heating 1 tsp of vegetable oil in pan on medium heat. Saute the onion and celery for about 5-10 minutes until they have browned just a bit. Lightly season them with a dash of garlic salt/black pepper. After the vegetables have cooked, put them into a large mixing bowl and add in the ground turkey, Frank’s Red Hot, bread crumbs and egg. Use your hands to mix the ingredients and then mold the meat into small patties.
To cook the patties, heat 1 tbsp of vegetable oil in a non-stick pan and cook on each side for about 5 minutes. You’ll most likely have to do several batches of this since there are so many patties. After the patties have cooked through, sprinkle on 1 tsp of blue cheese over top and put the lid on the pan to steam the cheese and melt it. Serve it up any way you like it with a few drops of Frank’s Red Hot over top of the melted cheese.
