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.
Trim ends off celery and cut into ¼" dice. Slice sweet potato into ¾" thick wedges. Trim and thinly slice green onions.
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.
Make the Burgers
Thoroughly combine ground turkey, liquid egg, panko, half the green onions (reserve remaining for slaw), half the hot sauce (reserve remaining for slaw), half the blue cheese (reserve remaining for topping burger), ¼ tsp. salt, and ¼ tsp. pepper in a medium mixing bowl. Form mixture into two 1" thick burger patties. Make a small dimple in middle of each burger.
Cook the Burger
Heat a grill or grill pan over medium-high heat. Lightly coat grill with cooking spray and place burgers on grill. Cook burgers until they reach a minimum internal temperature of 165 degrees, 5-6 minutes per side. Transfer to a plate and set aside. While burgers cook, make slaw and warm buns.
Make Slaw and Warm Buns
Toss together slaw mix, celery, remaining green onions, remaining hot sauce (to taste), 1 tsp. olive oil, and a pinch of salt and pepper in another medium mixing bowl. Split pretzel buns and warm on prepared baking sheet, 3-4 minutes. Alternately, you can place buns directly on grill pan or outdoor grill.
Plate the Dish
Place bottom bun on a plate and top with turkey burger. Top burger with remaining blue cheese and a scoop of slaw. Place top bun over burger. Arrange a pile of sweet potato wedges next to burger.
