Buffalo Blue Burgers with Celery Slaw
Blue Cheese Sauce
2 ounces blue cheese
1 tablespoon sour cream
1 teaspoon mayonnaise
2 tablespoons buttermilk, or lowfat milk
1 teaspoon apple cider vinegar
1 cup celery, thinly sliced
1/4 cup red onion, finely chopped
1 tablespoon parsley, finely chopped
1 teaspoon canola oil
1/4 teaspoon dry mustard
2 teaspoons apple cider vinegar
Bottled hot sauce (such as Frank's) to taste
1 pound ground buffalo, formed into 4, 3/4-inch thick patties
4 whole grain hamburger buns, split and toasted
Heat grill to medium-high heat.
In a small bowl, mix together blue cheese, sour cream, mayonnaise, buttermilk, vinegar and a generous grind of black pepper and whisk until smooth.
In another bowl, toss celery with onion, parsley, oil, mustard, vinegar and a pinch of salt and pepper.
Generously brush both sides of burgers with mixture and place over direct heat on the grill. Brush with additional hot sauce. Cook 2-3 minutes, basting once, and flip. Cook another 2 minutes, until medium rare.
Place burgers on buns, top with celery slaw and drizzle with blue cheese mixture.
