Buffalo Wing Burger – #SundaySupper

Buffalo Wing Burgers with Chunky Blue Cheese #SundaySupper

This weekend marks the unofficial start of summer here in Canada!  Known as the Victoria Day Weekend, but even better known as the May 2, 4 weekend, it is the weekend many families head north to open their cottages.  

The garden centers are packed with homeowners picking up plants and supplies as the chance of frost has finally past.

One thing is for sure, everyone is back outside in their yards again, and the smell of barbecue is all over the neighbourhood!

Our backyard is no exception.  

Now that the gardens are weeded, the screen porch cleanup is underway, the patio furniture has come out of hiding and the barbecue has been cleaned and polished, it is time to throw our favorite burgers on the barbie!

Every summer my husband hosts a golf day and barbecue for his co-workers and these Buffalo Wing Burgers are a huge hit.  

If these buffalo wing burgers and my Lavender Honey Ice Cream are not on the menu, you can bet I am going to hear about it!

These buffalo wing burgers are smothered in chunky blue cheese and mild buffalo wing sauce

A juicy homemade patty with a touch of Frank’s Red Hot Chicken Wing sauce is grilled to perfection before being placed on a crispy toasted kaiser bun.  

Then comes the best part!  A sprinkling of caramelized onions, then a generous layer of tangy blue cheese and finally, a smothering of buffalo wing sauce.

Serve these buffalo wing burgers with a side of crispy onion rings, french fried potatoes or summer salad and you have a complete delicious summer barbecue meal.

Our first of the season, or should I say, our first of the weekend!

With a stellar weather forecast for the entire long weekend I have a feeling we will be dining al fresco all weekend long!

Until next time….

  1. Maureen, these look delish! Yesterday, I was pondering what new treat I could conjure up for the barbecue (while weeding our garden no less) and came up empty. I decided I would have to do some browsing on the Internet to find something.

    This is such a timely arrival in my mail box! I love ‘hot’, carmelized onions (yum), and blue cheese. I think i’ll go with ground chicken since I like it better than beef.

    The results should be stunning and you’re right, we’ve finally been blessed with a beautiful warm weekend. I can hardly even believe that it snowed just last weekend.

      1. The burgers were absolutely delicious! I did go ahead and use ground chicken for mine and had to add some siracha sauce to the hot sauce ‘dressing’ since, “Oops! I don’t have quite enough hot sauce left!!” With my love of caramelized onions, they were also included.

        They were a hit with everyone and I’m sure they will be served up again soon. Thank you for sharing!

  2. Yum! There is just something about a burger that screams summer. Yours look absolutely amazing. I love the combo of buffalo sauce and burgers and all that bleu cheese…. I wish I had one now!

  3. Another Canadian member of Sunday Supper!! Happy May Long 🙂 I’ve been so curious about your burgers since I saw your post title… and they did not disappoint. WOW they look good!!

    1. I have been thoroughly enjoying my Monday off! Next week I will be sulking because all of my American friends will have the long weekend!!

  4. These would be perfect for Father’s Day at our house. Buffalo wings and burgers happen to be two of my husband’s favorite foods! Thanks for sharing at our Father’s Day party!
