The true Hawaiian classic hamburger. While many people might think twice about topping a hamburger with pineapple, this is a great burger that everyone who tries it loves.

Prep Time: 15 minutes

Cook Time: 15 minutes

Total Time: 30 minutes

Yield: Makes 4 1/4-pound burgers


  • 1 pound ground beef
  • 3/4 cup teriyaki sauce
  • 1 small can pineapple slices
  • 1 large onion, sliced
  • 4 lettuce leaves
  • 4 buns
  • 4 slices Swiss cheese
  • 4 strips bacon, fully cooked
  • 1 tablespoon butter


Drain pineapple juice in a bowl. Add teriyaki sauce and mix. Place pineapple slices and 3 tablespoons of pineapple teriyaki mixture in a resealable plastic bag. Turn to coat and set aside. Shape hamburger into 4 patties and spoon remaining pineapple teriyaki sauce over top. Preheat grill. Butter buns. Place burger patties on hot grill and grill until done. Place buns on grill cut side down to toast lightly. Remove pineapple slices from bag and place on grill and cook until slightly browned and warmed through.

Pineapple burgers?? But I had leftover pineapple in the fridge, so I picked up some brown-and-serve buns and dove in. I began by cooking the bacon and buns over direct heat -- both were firsts for me, and both turned out well. While the burgers and pineapple cooked, I loaded up the buns with the bacon, cheese and onions. I thought it looked dry, so I spread a blend of teriyaki and mayo on the buns. My wife said these were the best burgers she's ever had. Direct heat and pineapple sure play well together!
