During the summertime, we love making burgers and grilling. When Red Gold Tomatoes sent me a gift pack with burger recipes, a variety pack of tomatoes including new flavors, spicy ketchup, and an apron, and asked me to try out their recipes, I was all about it. We love adding different ingredients and seasonings to our burgers, so adding seasoned tomatoes made perfect sense. It’s also a great way to add more veggies to a meal. Read below to find out how you can win your own prize pack!
I decided to make the Spicy Tomato Burger recipe first because I already had ground beef in the fridge. I honestly didn’t expect much from the recipe because it’s so simple, but I was impressed with how much flavor the tomatoes added. I made these on a cast iron grill pan because it was raining outside, but they turned out great. The burgers were juicier and more tender than usual with the addition of the tomatoes.
