80--- Buffalo Turkey Burgers

You know I do not cook with meat very often.

These must be truly amazing.

Buffalo Turkey Burgers
Serves 6

1 lb lean ground turkey
1 cup Frank's hot wing sauce, divided
1/2 cup finely chopped white onion
2 Tbsp finely chopped carrots
2 Tbsp finely chopped celery
2 Tbsp yellow cornmeal
1 egg white
1/4 tsp salt
Dash ground black pepper
1/2 cup blue cheese crumbles + more for topping if desired

Combine turkey, 1/4 cup hot sauce, onion, celery, carrots, cornmeal, egg white, salt, pepper, and 1/2 cup blue cheese.  Mix well with clean hands.  Allow mixture to sit in refrigerator for 1 hour. Form into six even patties.

Heat a large nonstick skillet over medium heat.  Add two burgers, cover and cook for 8-10 minutes per side.  Pour remaining hot sauce into a shallow bowl.  Dip each burger into the sauce, coating evenly.  Place onto buns.

Serve garnished with baby arugula, additional hot sauce, and additional blue cheese crumbles, if desired.
