To kick off hamburger season, as part of a sponsored post for Collective Bias® and Save Mart, I made Bruschetta Cheeseburgers using ingredients from my local Save Mart Supermarket. #FreshFinds #cbias
Summertime means grilling. Grilling means hamburgers. Which means... it's hamburger season y'all!! I'll admit, my burgers usually lack any kind of pizzazz. I am a cheeseburger kinda girl, just add mayo, ketchup, lettuce and pickles to make me content. However, I heard that Save Mart Supermarket has an upcoming sale featuring Build a Better Burger items and I was instantly inspired to, well, build a better burger!
I headed to my local Save Mart to discover some fresh finds and had to share a picture of their produce department. Check out the charming baskets the veggies and fruits are displayed in!! It's the small touches that keep me coming back - I am all about a homey atmosphere at a grocery store.
Tomatoes scream summertime - so I just had to include them in my "better burger". Even my picky-eating children love tomatoes. Although we didn't plant a garden this year, I still have Save Mart and their wide selection of tomatoes - from Cherry to Roma to Hot House. With the cute baskets. :)
Tomatoes will be included, along with other items such as ground beef and buns, in the Build a Better Burger sale. For all items, just check out the front page of the Save Mart Supermarket ad from your local store, starting 7/24.
I made Bruschetta Cheeseburgers - 1/3lb hamburger patties, topped with mozzarella cheese and a simple homemade bruschetta. It was quick, easy and best of all - tasted of summertime!! Letting the bruschetta chill before serving added a nice, crisp touch to the burger on a hot day. I think I may have inspired myself to whip up another burger using other seasonal produce! (Back to Save Mart I go...)
