Taste of Summer with Red Gold Tomatoes :: Italian Turkey Burgers


To me the taste of summer = throwing something on the grill after a day of being at the pool.  I love to prep our meals and serve appetizers {like chips and queso which we ate lots of this 4th of July weekend} while Jason mans the grill and Jack gets to play outside in the backyard.


Last year, I featured some of Red Gold's delicious grilling recipes in honor of their annual "summer grilling giveaway" which they are doing again this year!

During the dates of June 24-July 22, Red Gold will be giving away a Large Big Green Egg every week, as well as 800 insulated tote bags on their Facebook Page.  Jason would love to win a Big Green Egg.

Last year we tried Red Gold's recipes for their Caribbean Chicken Burger and Spicy Tomato Burger.  Both were perfection and we continued to make them throughout the year.


This year I was anxious to try their Italian Turkey Burger.  We use turkey a ton in our household and I knew Jack would like the Italian flavors.

Italian Turkey Burger
  • 1 pound ground turkey (I used 99% lean)
  • 1 (14.5 ounce) can Red Gold Diced Tomatoes with Basil, Garlic & Oregano, drained very well
  • 1 egg
  • 1/4 cup bread crumbs
  • Salt and pepper to taste 
1.  Combine ground turkey, tomatoes, egg and bread crumbs in a bowl.  Form into patties and season with salt and pepper.  (I ended up using more bread crumbs than it called for just to make the patties stick better).

2.  Grill the patties and you are done!

3.  I served with whole wheat hamburger buns.  You can add ketchup or thick pasta sauce to the burger and add a little mozzarella cheese too! 


Another success!  Both Jason and Jack gobbled them up and I loved it too.  It made great leftovers for lunch the next day.  Double score!  I just served the burgers with grilled veggies that were skewered so it was super easy to throw on the grill with the meat.  Can you tell I'm all about quick and easy?




For something off the grill, but still 100% summer, I'm anxious to try the Peach Chicken Chipotle Salad!  That just screams summer.

I was not compensated for this post.  I was given the product and cooler bag in order to try and review.  All opinions are my own.
