A note about serious food allergies

Why should finger foods have all of the Buffalo sauce fun? This lean and flavorful burger - made with ground turkey, breadcrumbs, blue cheese, and hot sauce - is grilled to perfection, placed on top of a pretzel bun, and crowned with even more blue cheese (because we love ya). We top the dish off with sweet potato wedges and a celery slaw to cool things down. You get the zesty Buffalo flavor you love, minus the messy hands and copious napkin usage.

    Make the Fries

    Combine sweet potato wedges with 2 tsp. olive oil and a pinch of salt and pepper on prepared baking sheet. Spread into a single layer and bake, flipping after 10 minutes, until fries are crisp and browned, 18-20 minutes. Transfer to a plate and set aside. Replace foil. While fries bake, make burgers.
