Tomato Bacon Relish for your Burgers

I have been making this relish for some time now  as a topping for my turkey and black bean burgers.  If you like the following ingredients then you will enjoy this on any burger you might make.  I call this my “burger with the works”!

Tomato Bacon Relish for your Burgers

  • 2 strips thick-sliced bacon (turkey or beef)
  • 1/2 cup onions, chopped
  • 1/4 cup brown sugar
  • 1/4 cup prepared yellow mustard
  • 1/4 cup ketchup
  • 1/2 cup tomatoes, peeled, seeded and diced

Saute the bacon and set aside; crumble.  Add the onion to the bacon grease and saute for about 5 minutes.  Stir in the sugar, mustard and ketchup.  Add the tomatoes and simmer 1 minute. Add the crumbled up bacon and stir or add the bacon on top of the tomato relish for a little more crunch.  I like my burgers (whether  beef, turkey or black bean) with a slice of melted cheddar, some dill pickle slices and a piece of lettuce.

  1. Perfect timing, Judi, with the grilling season finally beginning! I’m pinning this to give it a go next time the burgers are prepared. It sounds delicious!


  2. Wow — this looks amazing! Not that it would last us that long, but how long does this keep in the fridge? Can’t wait to make this soon!
