There are some things that America gets right, like BBQ, Chicken Wings, & Burgers. Now just combine the best of those things, a homemade buffalo sauce + a DELICIOUS blue cheese sauce & don’t forget the celery, to get this amazing burger that will WOW you. [You also get tons of extra buffalo sauce that you can use to make air fryer chicken wings.] All I have to say is Bob [Bob’s Burgers] knew what he was doing with this one.
- 2/3 Cup Frank’s Red Hot sauce
- 1 Stick + 1 TBSP Butter, divided
- 2 TBSP White Vinegar
- 1/4 to 1 TSP Cayenne [ I like it hot so I do 1 TSP]
- 1/2 White Onion, finely chopped
- 2 TBSP All Purpose Flour
- 1 Cup Whole Milk
- 1 Cup Crumbled Blue Cheese
- 3 Stalks Celery, finely chopped
- 1 LB Ground Beef
- 4 Sesame Buns
- Green Leaf Lettuce
Let’s Get Cooking
Make the Buffalo Sauce
Combine the Frank’s Red Hot + butter + vinegar + cayenne in a small saucepan & stir over MED heat until the butter is completely melted. Remove from heat and let stand until cool.
Make the Blue Cheese Sauce
Melt the remaining TBSP of butter in a saucepan over MED heat. Add the onion and cook until softened. Add in the flour & stir vigorously. Slowly add the milk, stirring constantly. Add in the blue cheese and mix until it melts completely. Allow the sauce to sit on low, often stirring until it thickens up and coats the back of a spoon.
Make the Burger
Mix the celery and 1/2 cup of the buffalo sauce into the beef and gently form into 4 patties. Season both sides with salt & pepper. Cook as you normally would, I do about 6 min each side on MED heat. Be extra careful when you flip, this burger is a little softer due to the buffalo sauce.
Build your Burger
Start with your bottom bun [I like mine toasted] + lettuce + burger + blue cheese sauce + buffao sauce + top bun.
Serve with french fries and extra napkins, but the mess is always worth it.
P.S Be sure to save that buffalo sauce!!!
