Italian Turkey Burger Fun and Red Gold Sweepstakes on Facebook



We made tasty and healthy Italian Turkey Burgers this week with Red Gold Tomatoes. There are several flavors of Red Gold tomatoes you can get, including Tomatoes with Basil, Garlic, and Oregano; Garlic and Olive Oil; Chili-Ready; or with Green Chilies.

It was really easy to make these aromatic burgers since the herbs were included in the tomatoes, but make sure you add plenty of egg and breadcrumbs since turkey does not hold together as well as beef. The recipe suggests serving them on Italian bread with pasta sauce and Italian cheese. Dan and I enjoyed them for dinner last night with tomatoes and spinach and Martin’s buns. I love Martin’s buns! The Mama Selita’s Jalapeno Ketchup went well, too.

It’s good to know about Red Gold tomatoes since they are so easy to combine with other ingredients to make a simple yet delicious recipe. They also have really cute red aprons, and I love that they are still family-owned. There are a couple of other burger recipes below. I am trying the Spicy Burgers next. Yum! Also, they are hosting a sweepstakes right now - see below.
