Buffalo Turkey Burgers:

  • 4 Tbsp. butter
  • 4 Tbsp. buffalo sauce
  • 2 lbs. ground turkey (90-93% lean)
  • 1 1/2 tsp. salt
  • 1/2 tsp. pepper
  • 1 tsp. Worcestershire sauce
For Serving: 
  • 6 leaves of lettuce

  • white onion slices
  • mayonnaise
  • 6 hamburger buns


  1. Melt butter in microwave and stir in buffalo sauce. Set aside. 
  2. Prep burgers: mix together turkey, salt, pepper, and Worcestershire sauce until just combined, to not overwork meat. Divide meat into 6 sections. Lightly form into patty shape, making an indent with fingers in the middle of burger.
  3. Cook burgers: heat grill to medium high heat. Cook for about 4-5 minutes per side. Alternatively, heat grill pan over medium high heat and cook for about 4-5 minutes per side. (Or until an internal temperature of 165 degrees F.) 
  4. Prep toppings: 
    Wash and dry lettuce leaves. 
    Slice onion and tomato.
  5. Assemble burgers: layer lettuce on bottom bun. Top with burger, a drizzle of buffalo butter, sliced onions, tomatoes, and a smear of mayonnaise if desired.
