This idea for easy grilling recipes was inspired by a product to review from Red Gold but all opinions expressed are my own.
Living in the south means we get pretty good grilling weather just about all year round. We have a Green Egg ceramic grill and my husband loves to find easy grilling recipes that allow him to get out and cook over an open fire even after a busy day at work. I am all for the husband grilling since it means less work for ME! If you are looking for easy grilling recipes, this burger recipe is right up your alley. Instead of a plain old burger with a tomato slice on TOP, try incorporating the tomatoes INTO your burger! I was sent a selection of products from Red Gold to try out in my own kitchen and this recipe was one that can be found on the Red Gold recipe page.
One thing I really liked about adding the diced tomatoes into the burger itself is that it makes one pound of ground beef go just a tad bit farther. Instead of getting 4 burgers out of a pound of ground beef I got 5...cuts back on cost and is better for your health to be eating less meat. I decided to give our burgers a bit of a kick and use the diced tomatoes with jalapenos IN the burger in addition to some jalapeno jack cheese and fresh jalapenos from the garden on top of the burger. The tomato taste to the burger was subtle but definitely noticeable and it had just the right amount of heat. We really enjoyed these burgers and if you are looking for easy grilling recipes this summer I highly recommend you give it a shot!
