Pineapple Teriyaki Burger

Yum
Time for the next installment of my summer burger quest.
I have to tell you...my husband is loving all this experimenting with burgers.  We are usually chicken people.  But, it's summer so burgers are a must.

Cue the Jimmy Buffet music...
If you can't get to a tropical island, bring that vibe to you!


Pineapple Teriyaki Burgers are so juicy!  I love the simple seasoning on the burger.  Just mix in some teriyaki sauce, pineapple juice, brown sugar, coconut milk and sea salt to make the most delicious hamburger patties.  Throw a slice of grilled pineapple, some red onions and a slice of Pepper Jack cheese to achieve that wonderful explosion of flavors!


Check out that tropical burger sitting on a potato roll.  It's a slider!  Love these bite size burgers!
I think it would be fabulous for Father's Day!


Ingredients:
1 1/2 lbs ground meat
3/4 Tbsp teriyaki sauce
1 Tbsp pineapple juice
1 Tbsp brown sugar
1/2 Tbsp coconut milk
sea salt (to taste)
fresh, sliced pineapple
red onion slices
Pepper Jack cheese slices
lettuce pieces
6 slider sized potato rolls
Directions:
In a large bowl, mix together, with your hands, ground meat, teriyaki sauce, pineapple juice, brown sugar and coconut milk.  Handle just enough to combine.  Do not overwork the meat.  Press into patties and season each side with sea salt to taste.  Start your grill.  When grill is ready,  grill the teriyaki hamburger patties over medium coals until no longer pink on the inside.  Remove from grill.  Place the fresh pineapple slices on the grill.  Grill for a few minutes per side to get those grill marks and to bring out some caramelization.  Remove from grill to assemble Pineapple Teriyaki Burger.  On a potato roll, start by placing a slice of Pepper Jack cheese followed by the teriyaki burger, red onion, grilled pineapple, more red onion, lettuce and top it off with the bun.  Serve.

Surprise your hubby for Father's Day with a trip to the tropics...for his tastebuds!
Provide a tropical cocktail and these Pineapple Teriyaki Burgers.  It'll be the cheapest trip ever!
