I love hamburgers and pineapple, so it just seemed natural for me to combine them.  My family frequently requests these unique burgers.  It’s a nice change of pace from the same old boring hamburger.

Aloha Burgers Recipe

Aloha Burgers

1 can (8 oz.) sliced pineapple

¾ cup reduced-sodium teriyaki sauce

1 lb. ground beef

1 large sweet onion, sliced

1 Tbsp. butter

4 lettuce leaves

4 sesame seed or onion buns, split and toasted

4 slices Swiss cheese

4 bacon strips, cooked


Drain pineapple juice into a small bowl; add teriyaki sauce.  Place 3 tablespoons in a resealable plastic bag.  Add pineapple; toss to coat and set aside.

Shape beef into four patties; place in an 8 inch square baking dish.  Pour the remaining teriyaki sauce mixture over patties; marinate for 5-10 minutes, turning once.

Drain and discard teriyaki marinade.  Grill, covered, over medium heat or broil 4 inches from the heat for 6-9 minutes on each side or until a thermometer reads 160 F. and juices run clear.  Meanwhile, in a small skillet, sauté onion in butter until tender, about 5 minutes; set aside.

Drain and discard pineapple marinade.  Place pineapple on grill or under broiler to heat through.  Layer with lettuce and onion on bottom of buns.  Top with burgers, cheese, pineapple and bacon.  Replace tops.       4 servings
