There are some foods that really get me excited.

The first time I made these Buffalo Chicken Burgers it was love at first bite.  Being a Buffalonian I love all things Buffalo, including Buffalo Chicken.  I also know the secret on how to make Buffalo chicken, like the famous wings so mouthwatering.  After the wings are cooked, they are then tossed in the Buffalo wing sauce we all love.

That is when the light bulb went off with these Buffalo Chicken Burgers.  Why not toss the burgers in the wing sauce after they are cooked, just like the wings are.

Holy moly you guys, these burgers are amazing.   If you love Buffalo sauce, and I don’t know many people that don’t, you have to try these burgers.  Have I mentioned that these are amazing?

If you are watching your carbs and/or not eating bread, these also make great bun-less burgers.  They have so much flavor, that even without a bun they are simply fabulous and so filling.  Also try these burgers in a lettuce wrap.  Just cut the burger in half, dip it in wing sauce, add in a wrap and sprinkle a little gorgonzola on top.  Super yummy!

Trust me, you definitely want to make these soon!  Your taste buds will thank you.

  1. These look SO good! I am such a sucker for anything Buffalo chicken. Mmm, I’m literally obsessed.
    Maybe I am secretly a Buffalonian?? It’s a stretch but it would just make so much sense!

    I’ll be making these soon and probably throwing extra hot sauce in there.
