Test Kitchen Tip

Chill the patties to help them hold their shape on the grill — the longer the better. You can even make the patties a day ahead and refrigerate them.


For the burgers, melt butter in a small sauté pan over medium-high heat. Add onion, celery, and garlic; cook until softened, 23 minutes. Let mixture cool briefly.

Mix together turkey, ¼ cup hot sauce, ½ cup blue cheese, and sautéed vegetables just until combined. Shape mixture into four patties; chill at least 20 minutes.

Preheat grill to medium-high. Brush grill grate with oil.

For the mayonnaise, combine mayonnaise, blue cheese, and hot sauce.

Coat both sides of each patty with nonstick spray. Grill patties, covered, until cooked through, 45 minutes per side, basting with remaining ¼ cup hot sauce.

Assemble burgers on rolls with lettuce and blue cheese mayonnaise.


For the best texture and flavor, sauté the onion, celery, and garlic in butter before mixing with the meat.


The burgers contain minimal fat, so to prevent sticking, coat them with nonstick spray before grilling.


To ensure the burgers are moist and flavorful, baste them with hot sauce while on the grill.
