Veracha Feta Burger with Bacon #CookOutWeek

Welcome to Day 3 of #CookOutWeek!


 Click here to checkout my welcome post and read all about #cookoutweek and our amazing giveaway!  I started off #CookOutWeek with a delicious recipe for Strawberry Margarita Popsicles and today I am sharing a fantastic burger recipe using one of our sponsored items from True Made Foods

True Made Foods sent me three of their delicious products: Ketchup, BBQ Sauce and Veracha Sauce. True Made Foods was founded by veterans and focuses on using fresh vegetables to sweeten their products and cuts the sugar in half, but maintaining great flavor. True Made Foods strives to make American food more nutritious by uses real whole foods and creating delicious products. I was especially excited to try their Veracha Sauce. The Veracha Sauce is a hot sauce uses a base of tomato, spinach, carrots and butternut squash. They bring the heat with a healthy dose of jalapeno and cayenne pepper to create an amazing and flavorful sauce. 

I wanted to create a unique burger that hit all my favorite flavors combos. I have had a chicken sandwich locally that mixes feta with a buffalo wing style hot sauce for a topping and I thought this would be a fantastic topper for my burger. I loved the flavor of the Veracha with the feta because the earthy and spicy vegetable flavors were perfect next to the briny salty cheese. I also opted to top my burger with a a few slices of bacon because I couldn't resist. The verdict on the burger in my house was an A+! My husband and I loved the spicy feta Veracha spread- it was a little hot for Kellen so I modified his with a a thin layer on the top of his burger. I love that Kellen is willing to experiment with foods that have a little heat- he usually likes them! 

Thank you True Made Foods for sharing your product with us! I love the concept of this company and their products are delicious!

Ingredients

1 1/2 lb lean ground beef
Salt and Pepper
6 oz crumbled feta

12 slices of bacon, cooked crisp
6 hamburger buns


Instructions

In a medium bowl, mix together Veracha and feta and set aside. 

Pat the burgers together and season with salt and pepper. 

Heat grill to medium high and grill 3-4 minutes per side or until thermometer reads 160 degrees F at the thickest part of the burger. After you flip the burgers the first time scoop desired amount of Veracha feta spread on the burger. I divided my spread between 6 burgers.
