I am sure that many of you have seen Red Gold Tomatoes at the store and some of you have even used them in your cooking. Did you know that Red Gold has been a family-run company since 1942? Plus, Red Gold's manufacturing facilities are located in our neighboring state of Indiana. I recently learned about these facts and was really happy to learn that Red Gold products are made so close to home! I love to support local companies whenever possible, so it is nice to know that Red Gold is so readily available.
Red Gold currently has some exciting things going on that I would like to tell you about. First, Red Gold has a number of recipes perfect for your summer grilling. You can actually use some of their flavorful tomato combinations to add a little pizzazz to your burgers. We decided to give their Caribbean Chicken Burger a whirl and enjoyed the tasty results. Here is the super-simple recipe:
1 lb ground chicken (we substituted turkey)
1 (14.5 oz.) can Red Gold Petite Diced Tomatoes with Lime Juice & Cilantro
1 egg, beaten
1/4 cup bread crumbs (we substituted cornmeal)
salt and black pepper to taste
Drain your can of tomatoes well--and I mean well. Combine first 4 ingredients in a bowl. Form into patties and season with salt and pepper. Grill to your desired temperature (recommended 160 degrees for entirely cooked burgers.)
Voila! A tasty burger! (We made ours petite!)
