Lunch / Dinner
Heat up a cool summer night with these spicy and cheesy Buffalo-flavored burgers. The blue cheese crumbles and creamy avocado slices help balance the heat from the Buffalo sauce — so don’t skip the toppings.
FOR THE SAUCE, MELT:
FOR THE BURGERS, COMBINE:
Preheat grill to medium-high. Brush grill grate with oil.
For the sauce, melt butter in a saucepan over medium-high heat. Whisk in flour, cook 1 minute, then gradually whisk in milk. Bring sauce to a boil and cook until thick. Whisk in Cheddar, cream cheese, ¼ cup hot sauce, and salt; reduce heat to low and keep sauce warm.
For the burgers, combine ground round, remaining ¼ cup hot sauce, scallions, and garlic; season with salt and pepper. Form mixture into 4 patties slightly bigger than buns.
Grill burgers, covered, until a thermometer inserted into the thickest part registers 155°, 5–6 minutes per side. Remove burgers from grill.
Brush buns with oil; toast on grill until edges are brown, 1 minute.
Serve burgers on buns with lettuce, avocado, sauce, and blue cheese.
While the sauce is boiling, whisk in Frank’s hot sauce for the quintessential Buffalo flavor.
Mix burger ingredients in a large bowl for even distribution. For best results, finely mince the scallions.
