  • 4 tablespoons butter, cut in small pieces
  • 1/3 cup mild hot sauce (such as Durkee Red Hot)
  • 1/2 cup finely crumbled blue cheese
  • 1 tablespoon minced garlic
  • 2 pounds ground buffalo or beef chuck, 85 percent lean
  • 1/2 teaspoon celery seed
  • 1/3 cup finely chopped onion
  • 6 hamburger buns, split


  1. Before You Go: Melt butter in a small microwaveable bowl or stovetop. Whisk in hot sauce.
  2. Mix blue cheese and garlic in small bowl.
  3. Using your hands, gently mix buffalo or beef, celery seed, onion and ¼ cup hot sauce mixture in a medium bowl until blended. Using a light touch, form into 12 patties about 4 ½ inches in diameter and no more than ½ inch thick. Spoon about 2 teaspoons of cheese-garlic mixture in center of 6 patties. Top with remaining patties and press together, sealing edges. Refrigerate burgers until ready to grill.
  4. When You Get There: Heat grill to medium. Brush and oil grill grate. Grill burgers, covered, 7 to 9 minutes, turning after about 4 minutes, for medium-done (150F, slightly pink). Add 1 minute per side for well-done (160F). Brush with remaining hot sauce mixture during last 2 minutes of cooking. Toast buns if you like.
