Stuffed Buffalo Chicken Burgers

Jalapeno Popper Stuffed Buffalo Chicken Burgers

The husband is bringing you Man Food Friday again. This guy really can’t get enough buffalo food. These amazing monstrosities are jalapeno popper stuffed buffalo chicken burgers. Let me tell you, these things are like Miami according to Will Smith. They bring the heat, for real. Anyone else remember his song Miami?

Ok moving on.

These stuffed buffalo chicken burgers are amazing. They kind of remind me of Cheesecake Factory Buffalo Blasts. In burger form. Gooey, cheese, hot and spicy. Sometimes I think my husband is a genius. But don’t tell him I said so, ok?

If you couldn’t tell from the last time I posted, I really love buffalo chicken. Sure, wings have been a staple of mine since I was young, but now since you can have buffalo anything I am finding new ways to enjoy my favorite sauce. These stuffed buffalo burgers do the trick nicely, and may even convince me that stuffed buffalo chicken burgers are better than grilled buffalo wings (though my recipe is tough to beat considering our toddler likes them).

If you have been following my wife’s posts, you know our daughter is made of Thai food. Very spicy, hot Thai food. The first time the kid tried a lemon, she made the sour face but then delightedly kept on eating. When we made the wings, she grabbed for them while my wife was taking the pictures for this site. She walked around gnawing on the wing until she has eaten through to the bone.

After months of telling her that spicy or hot food is too much for her, we have given up. After the wing snatching, we just give her what we are having, at least to try. If she won’t eat it, more for us, and we give her another option.

These stuffed buffalo chicken burgers are pretty spicy. They take our Buffalo Chicken Burgers and stuff the melted jalapeno popper center from our Stuffed Jalapeno Popper Burgers into them. The result: a kicked up chicken burger smothered in spicy sauce stuffed with creamy melted cheese and flecks of fresh jalapenos.

So like any good parent, I let the Goose try a burger. They are hotter than the other recipes since they combine elements of each, but the kid did not flinch. She took a bite and wanted more. Then she ate her standard 5 bites so I’d say this recipe is toddler approved.*

  • Yield: 6 1x



For Cheese Stuffing

  • 1/2 cup cheddar cheese
  • 1/2 cup cream cheese
  • 4 minced or crushed garlic cloves
  • 1/4 cup Franks hot sauce
  • 1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/2 jalapeno pepper
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • 1/2 cup bread crumbs
  • 1 egg

For the Burgers

  • 1 pound ground chicken
  • 1/2 cup Franks hot sauce
  • 3 Tablespoons butter
  • 4 cloves of garlic crushed or minced
  • 1/2 jalapeno pepper
  • 1/4 cup shredded cheddar cheese
  • 1 egg
  • 1 1/3 cup bread crumbs
  • salt and pepper to taste


For the filling:

  1. Mix all ingredients but the breadcrumbs and egg in a small bowl
  2. Whisk with a fork the egg in small dish
  3. Place breadcrumbs in a separate dish
  4. Form cream cheese mixture into roughly Tablespoon size balls
  5. Coat each ball in egg and dip in breadcrumbs until coated
  6. Repeat until used up

For the patties

  1. Preheat oven to 375
  2. Melt the butter for roughly 30 seconds in the microwave or stove top
  3. Throw all ingredients into a medium bowl
  4. Mix by hand or spoon until the ingredients are well combined
  5. Taking about a 1/4 of the mixture, start to form a patty with a small well in it
  6. Add the breaded cheese balls to the center of the patty
  7. Make sure to cover the entire ball with the chicken mixture
  8. Repeat to make 4 patties
  9. Heat skillet or griddle to medium high heat and spray or lubricate with oil
  10. Place each patty on the skillet and sear both sides for about 2-3 minutes a side
  11. Place seared patties into preheated oven and cook for 30 – 40 minutes (since this is raw chicken, it is best to use a meat thermometer in the core of the patty to ensure it was cooked through)
  12. Add a slice or two of cheese
  13. Serve with blue cheese, ranch, or any other condiment you would prefer.

It depends on patty size. We've done it both ways where we've made 6 patties and 4 patties. I will say 4 patties are GIGANTIC and I shared mine with my husband.
