  • 2 pounds Ground Beef

  • Kosher salt

  • Freshly ground black pepper

  • 1/2 cup light ranch dressing

  • 2 tablespoons buffalo wing sauce

  • 1/2 cup blue cheese crumbles

  • 8 slices of red leaf lettuce

  • 8 slices of tomato

  • 8 2-ounce whole-grain hamburger buns


  1. Combine Ground Beef in a large bowl, mixing lightly but thoroughly. Shape into four 3/4-inch thick patties. Season with salt and pepper.

  2. Light charcoal grill. The fire should be quite hot; you should barely be able to hold your hand 3 or 4 inches over the grates. After the coals are gray, spray grates with cooking spray or brush with oil to help keep burgers from sticking.

  3. Put patties on grill and cook about 4 minutes per side for rare, and another minute per side for each increasing stage of doneness.

  4. Prepare dressing by whisking together ranch dressing and buffalo wing sauce in a small bowl. Set aside.

  5. Place burgers on bottoms of buns. Top burgers evenly with dressing, blue cheese crumbles, lettuce and tomato.
