Recipe: Hot buffalo burgers with blue cheese

Inspired by hot Buffalo wings, these beef burgers have the same great game-day flavor, but are much easier to eat. If you’re like Jamie and want your burger nuclear hot, add an extra dash of Tabasco to the mayo - and mix up a pitcher of Frosty Piña Colada Punch to cool yourself down.

  • ½ cup crumbled blue cheese (2 ounces)
  • 1⁄4 cup mayonnaise
  • 8 tablespoons (1 stick) unsalted butter, melted
  • 5 tablespoons Tabasco or other hot sauce
  • 3 pounds ground beef
  • 2 teaspoons salt
  • 2 teaspoons freshly ground black pepper
  • 8 hamburger buns
  • 2 small Vidalia onions, cut into 1⁄4-inch-thick rounds
  • ½ cup chopped celery leaves


Make ahead

1 In a small bowl, stir together the blue cheese and mayonnaise.
In a separate bowl, whisk together the butter and 2-1⁄2 tablespoons of the Tabasco.

In another bowl, mix together the ground beef, the remaining 2-1⁄2 tablespoons Tabasco, the salt, and pepper until just combined.

3 Form the beef mixture into eight 1-inch-thick patties and brush with some of the Tabasco butter. Pack the patties into a plastic bag and place in the cooler to transport.

At the game
4 Preheat the grill to medium-high heat and brush the grate with oil or spray with nonstick cooking spray.

5 Transfer the burgers to the grill. Close the cover and cook, brushing halfway through with more Tabasco butter, to the desired doneness, 3 to 5 minutes per side. Let the burgers rest off the grill while toasting the buns.

6 Meanwhile, place the buns on the grill, cut side down, until lightly toasted, about 1 minute.

7 Brush the burgers with additional Tabasco butter. Sandwich the onion slices, celery leaves, and a dollop of blue cheese dressing inside the buns and serve.

Serves 8.
