Spicy Tomato Burger

I was beyond excited when Red Gold Tomatoes contacted me about their Summer Grillin' Party. The party began June 25th on their facebook page. During the party, which ends on July 23rd, they are holding a weekly drawing for 1,000 aprons..... AND a grand prize of a Big Green Egg Grill and Red Gold Grilling kit. How cool is that?

To add to the fun, they sent me tomatoes, recipes and an apron! I have had so much fun with these tomatoes. I made a delicious baked main dish I will share with you another day. For today, we are talking about a burger on the grill! A burger with tomatoes in it! I was leery of this. Truckin' Man and I are not big on tomatoes on our burgers, but you know what? We loved them IN the burger. So, parents... if you want a way to get your kids to eat another veggie... try this! 

Disclaimer: Red Gold provided me with tomatoes and an apron for participating in the 
"Summer Grilling Party", but all opinions are my own.

Spicy Tomato Burger (Source: Red Gold)

1 pound lean ground beef
1 - 14.5 ounce can Red Gold Petite Deiced Tomatoes with Green Chiles (Drained)
Salt and Pepper
Cheese (I used cheddar, but recommend topping with a Pepper Jack cheese)
Burger Toppings

Preheat grill.
Drain tomatoes well. Combine ground beef and diced tomatoes. Form into patties. Season well with salt and pepper.

Place patties on grill and cook until medium well. Top with cheese and close grill for another minute, until cheese is melted.

Remove and assemble burgers with your favorite toppings!
