Buffalo Chicken Burger

serves 2 - 4
½ cup buffalo sauce
4 tablespoons unsalted butter
3 tablespoons honey
1 pound spicy chicken sausage, casings removed
Olive oil
1/2 cup blue cheese crumbles
red onion slices
4 pretzel buns (or your favorite bun)

Preheat grill to medium high.

In a small sauce pan over medium heat, combine butter and honey.  Once butter mixture is melted add buffalo sauce.  Whisk to combine, once mixture is almost boiling (starting to bubble) reduce to simmer until thickened.

Portion and form chicken sausage into patties slightly larger than your bun (4 ounce to serve 4, 8 ounce to serve 2).  Make a slight indentation in the center of the burger to prevent it from doming up in the center. The indentation will rise as your burger cooks. 

Grill until golden brown and slightly charred (about 3-5 minutes), turning once (cook for 3 minutes on the other side for medium). Once patty is turned liberally brush hot sauce onto burger.  After you remove the burger from the heat, brush the other side.  Try not to press down on your burger with a spatula. It will cause the juices to escape and will create a dry burger!

To assemble burger, place 2 rings of red onion on the bottom bun.  Place the chicken sausage on top.  Make sure chicken sausage patty is well coated in hot sauce.  Add blue cheese to top of burger and serve!

Enjoy.
