In addition to the tomatoes they sent me a bottle of Mama Selita’s Jalapeno Ketchup. Why the combo? Red Gold is having a Summer Grilling Party Sweepstakes that is open for one more week! (Ends Aug 30) With that they sent me tomatoes, ketchup, a couple of aprons and recipes for using Red Gold Tomatoes while grilling burgers! I was curious to find out how to use canned tomatoes on the grill!
There were 5 burger recipe cards with the pack – I chose the Caribbean Chicken Burger to try first.
It’s pretty simple – mix ground chicken, Red Gold Petite Diced Tomatoes w/Lime Juice & Cilantro, 1 egg (I left this out), breadcrumbs & salt/pepper. My husband is allergic to eggs but typically eggs are used as a binder – so as a swap – I just didn’t drain the tomatoes as much. This mixed up easily enough and was pretty gloppy.
They formed patties pretty easily though – I just sort of glopped them together on my grill pan. We don’t have a great grill – it’s a cheap-o charcoal – sure would be nice to win that Green Egg Grill in the sweeps – right?!
I wish I’d had more toppings – this would be great with avocado and maybe some grilled pineapple slices! The burgers were really juicy with the extra tomatoes inside the burger. These burgers are better fresh – extras get a little dry since the chicken is fairly lean.
There you have it – the way to use canned tomatoes on the grill! Thanks Red Gold for introducing new burger ideas to me. Below the recipe you’ll find a giveaway of 2 Red Gold gift packs like the one I got. And don’t forget to enter the sweepstakes – it ends August 30!
