Buffalo ‘n’ Blue Cheese Turkey Burger with Kale Chips

May 31, 2011 · 0 comments

I love Buffalo chicken but as part of a healthy lifestyle, it’s not exactly a regular on my menu.  In the spirit of bbq season, I decided to recreate my favorite flavors in a delicious, healthy burger.

Best of all, you only need 3 ingredients (5 total if you make my spicy kale chips as seen here).  I also created this burger in a frying pan for those of you who do not have access to a grill.

What you’ll need:

  • 4 oz Ground Lean Turkey
  • 1 tsp Franks Red Hot
  • 1 Laughing Cow Wedge Blue Cheese flavor
  • 3 cups washed/cut Kale
  • Mrs Dash Chipotle Seasoning

Preheat oven to 400 degrees.  Lay kale out on a cookie sheet.  Spray liberally with olive oil cooking spray.  Next, shake generously the Mrs Dash Chipotle seasoning.  If you do not have this ingredient, feel free to use your own herbs on hand.  Have fun.  It’s hard to mess this up.  Once preheated, put kale in over for 8-12 minutes or until crispy.

Meanwhile, preheat the skillet or grill.  Form a single patty with the ground turkey.  Pan fry or grill until the inside is no longer pink.  Spread the blue cheese on top and top with 1 tsp of Frank’s Red Hot.  If using a grill, let the cheese melt a little.  If using a pan, place a cover on top or put pan in the over for a few minutes.

This was delicious!  I am going to make it again and again.  Cheap, easy and amazingly satisfying.  Feel free to have it on a bun, but I chose to enjoy the flavors as is.
