Buffalo Chicken Burgers and Fries

Sorry it's been so long! I have been so busy preparing food for out annual superbowl party, i have not had time to blog! Don't worry, i will post the party food later! I have been busy taking taking pictures and creating new recipes!

I promised you Buffalo Turkey Burgers....
This is really very simple and is just a variation of the burger you would normally make! Pair it with low cal coleslaw or baked fries this makes a hearty healthy meal.

Buffalo Turkey Burgers
1 lb lean ground turkey breast
3 T Yogurt Blue Cheese Dressing (see pic)
3 T Ashanti Buffalo wing sauce (or any low cal one)
1/2 cup bread crumbs

Fire up the grill. Add all ingredients to a bowl and mix well.
This is the dressing i have been loveing lately. It is Bolthouse Farms Brand.

 This is the Wing Sauce I use. Brand is Ashanti. I use it because it has no fat and only 5 calories per tablespoon. I have seen others, but this one is pretty mild and that is why i like it.

   (I left out enough turkey to make a burger for my kids who would not like the spicy burger).

 Shape into palm sized burgers.
I was able to make 3 out of the buffalo style
and 2 plain for the kids.
 Place on a hot grill. Drizzle with wing sauce to your liking. Grill about 8 minutes on each side. Drizzle each time you flip them over. Be sure they are cooked through and remove them from the grill.
Drizzle with more wing sauce if desired and top with blue cheese dressing above. Place on a low calorie whole wheat bun and add  lettuce and tomato if you would like, or a slice of american cheese.
For Coleslaw....
14 ounces coleslaw mix
1/4 cup fat free mayonnaise
1/4 cup reduced fat sour cream
3 T sugar
1/4 tsp salt
1/4 tsp ground mustard
1/8 tsp celery seed
Mix all ingredients in a bowl and refrigerate for at least one hour before serving. 
3/4 cup serving is 85 calories, 2 grams fat, 3 grams fiber

For Baked Fries....
Makes 2 servings
Slice one large potatoor 2 small potatos.
 into 12 wedges.
 Place on parchment paper lined baking sheet. Spray with cooking spray, sprinkle with salt. Bake at 450 degrees until crisp, about 30 minutes. Turn afer 15 minutes and respray with cooking spray and a dash of salt.

 Enjoy! Until tomorrow.......
(which will be Wonton Ravioli)
