Aloha Burgers

Posted on

A couple of nights ago, we made one of my favorite summer meals, Aloha Burgers!  Caleb & I fell in love with Aloha Burgers (or Hawaiian burgers) back when we were dating & would frequent Red Robin.  After we got married & moved hundreds of miles away from the nearest Red Robin, we decided we should try making our own version.  After trying a few different methods, in particular with the teriyaki seasoning, I think we’ve come up with a super yummy, & easy, summer meal.   I may even venture to say we like them better than the original. :)

Aloha Burgers

1 lb ground beef

1/4 c teriyaki sauce/marinade

1/8 t sea salt

1/4 t fresh ground pepper

4 thick slices cheddar cheese

fresh pineapple slices

real mayonnaise

whole wheat buns/bread

In a small bowl, mix together ground beef, teriyaki, salt & pepper.  Patty beef into 4 burgers & refrigerate for at least 20 minutes.

Preheat grill.

Grill burgers until internal temperature reaches 160° F.  Top burgers with cheese slices for just a minute to melt.

Carefully grill pineapple slices over med-high heat, just until you can see grill lines.

If desired, toast split whole wheat buns or bread slices for 30 to 60 seconds on the grill.

Assemble by placing a dollop of mayonnaise onto the bun, top with burger, cheese & pineapple slices.

Serve with a side salad or veggie.  Enjoy!!
