This is a great recipe for those who like me love buffalo wings, but know that bikini season is right around the corner. Before I go into detail about how delicious and amazing this dish is I have to give a big thanks to my best-friend Lauren who shared it with me. Actually she came to my house and made it for me once, yes, she is that awesome! Okay back to the buffalo lettuce turkey wraps… The recipe is extremely easy to make and with Franks Buffalo Sauce its like you are eating real buffalo wings! I’ve made this recipe a few other times but only when my hubby was away for business thinking he would never like them. Tonight I made them and he said okay I’ll try them, to my surprise he loved them! Once I heard that I knew I had to share! I took a few pictures tonight while cooking with my phone so sorry the photos are not top notch!
1 pound ground turkey (I used lean ground turkey but you don’t have to)
1 medium onion chopped
1-2 cloves garlic minced (use two if you love garlic like me)
1 cup Franks Buffalo Sauce (half to cook with half to drizzle on top)
1 tsp olive oil
Romain Lettuce Hearts (Trader Joes)
4 Celery sticks chopped
2 carrots – slivers (I used a potato peeler)
Blue Cheese Crumbles
Add olive oil to a skillet, wait for it to heat up, add the chopped onion, and cook about 5-7 minutes or until you can see through the cooked onion. Add the garlic cook a few minutes, add ground turkey. Once ground turkey is cooked add 1/2 cup of Franks Buffalo sauce and stir together for a few minutes.
Add cooked turkey onto lettuce, add celery, carrot slivers, blue cheese crumbles, and ranch dressing and enjoy!
