Buffalo Chicken Burger Bowl

The following recipe and photography were provided by local blogger Carolyn Hodges of The Dinner Shift.

If you’re in the market for a really simple weeknight dinner, make your way over to Heinen’s Meat Department and check out their selection of gourmet burgers! These premade patties are perfectly seasoned and come in a variety of flavors. With beef, chicken, turkey, salmon and plant-based bean burgers, there’s really something for everyone!

Of course, burgers are delicious on a toasted bun with all the toppings, but they’re also the perfect protein topper for main dish salads. I picked up Heinen’s Buffalo Chicken Burgers for this fun spin on a buffalo chicken salad complete with celery, carrots, blue cheese and ranch! It’s full of flavor, totally filling and super satisfying. It will be on repeat all summer long!
