The ingredients must have come to me in my sleep. The more I use my slow cooker, the more I love it.

This salmon is so delicious on it's own. I decided to cedar plank the salmon on the grill, and drizzle it with some cayenne lime butter.

After having a bite of the Chipotle Chicken Tacos my coworker brought for lunch a couple of weeks ago, this was my dinner two days later.

If you know me you know I am a sucker for avocado and chipotle. I used a rotisserie chicken so it's super easy to make.

Egg, Prosciutto & Tomato Muffins
Sriracha Meatballs

I'm a big fan of savory muffins. These are pretty much mini omelettes in a cup. They are perfect for weekend brunch, and even better to make ahead for the week and then pop them in the microwave.

Buffalo Chicken Burgers

Buffalo Chicken Burgers

 

We LOVE all things buffalo in our house, and these buffalo chicken burgers surpassed all of our expectations. And no, it wasn't because we have low expectations. 

This is why...

Buffalo sauce was mixed into the chicken patties and then more was slathered on while grilling.  

Blue cheese crumbles were mixed into the patties, just look at it oozing out below.

and, I added shredded carrots into the patties, so that means I could tell myself they were healthy :)

The burgers were then topped with avocado and immediately devoured. These were seriously so good, if you are a fan of buffalo sauce or my Pulled Buffalo Chicken Sandwiches these are a must try! 

Thanks to Stefanie over at Sarcastic Cooking, her tweet about the Buffalo Turkey Burgers she made were my inspiration. It also made me want buffalo wings for breakfast.

Note, that in lieu of combining Frank's Red Hot and butter, you could just use 1-1/2 to 2 cups of Franks Red Hot Wing sauce.

Ingredients
1 pound ground chicken
1-1/2 cups Franks Red Hot Sauce
2 tablespoons of butter
3 garlic cloves, minced
5 oz. crumbled blue cheese
1/2 cup shredded carrots 
1 teaspoon Montreal Steak Seasoning
1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper
1/2 cup panko bread crumbs
1 avocado, for garnish
1/2 onion, for garnish
hamburger buns
cheddar cheese, optional

Directions
Preheat grill to medium high heat.  

In a small saucepan, melt butter over medium low, combine with hot sauce and minced garlic. Let simmer for about 5 minutes.

In a large bowl, gently combine ground chicken, 3/4 to 1 cup of the hot sauce mixture, shredded carrots, steak seasoning, cayenne pepper, blue cheese and bread crumbs. Form into patties, it should make about 4 or 5.

Place burgers on grill and cook for about 7 minutes on each side, basting with buffalo sauce on each side. Transfer to late and let sit for a few minutes. If desired, toast hamburger buns for a couple of minutes.

Garnish with avocado, onion, more buffalo sauce and cheese, if desired.
