Venison Wing Burger Experiment

So we had our "SEE YOU NEXT TIME!" Open House this past weekend.  A bunch of wonderful friends were able to make it by, and we got through SOME of what was in the freezer/fridge. Still a long way to go... it's a good thing the next house isn't that far from the first... definitely ditty-moving (do it yourself) the coolers...

But we came up with a rough estimate of what we used to call "Ruck Burgers" - the hamburgers that were covered with hot sauce that we used to get at... "The Ruck" our old college dive bar. (they're on the menu as "Wing Burgers" - what did they know? pshhh! lol)

I had a little over 2 pounds of venison ground beef that was given to us by a friend of Hubby's, and so I mixed it all up with a McCormick packet of Buffalo Wing Mix, made some pattys and Hubby grilled them up like regular burgers. WOW. They were pretty nummy. Didn't taste just like Ruck Burgers... but they were made with venison instead of beef... and a McCormick packet instead of hot sauce, but hey. It's the thought that counts.

Either way, I ate mine with ranch dressing instead of ketchup, and it was DE-LISH. So if you're looking for a way to change it up from regular burgers for your next shindig (or tonight's dinner), throw some Buffalo Wing Mix in your ground meat and put the bottle of ranch (or blue cheese dressing) out and see what happens. I think you'll be pleasantly surprised :).
