Pineapple Teriyaki Turkey Burger

IMG_3992

Let’s talk about burgers for a second. It’s a summer staple at our house, and I’m always looking for more ways to serve them than just the staples of ketchup, mustard, pickles… you get the drill. So I thought, why not add some island flare? Teriyaki is one of my favorite flavors, and I had a pineapple on my counter. And this burger was created. All you need are a few ingredients.

Pineapple Teriyaki Turkey Burger

8 turkey burger patties, whatever brand you love

8 Hawaiian hamburger buns (or sweet buns)

8 slices Monterrey Jack cheese

1 large red onion, sliced

Teryiaki sauce (thicker is better)

1/2 cup mayonnaise plus 1/3 cup pineapple juice (mix together)

Cilantro

8 Pineapple slices

In a large skillet, brown your onions to caramelize, adding a pinch of salt and a tbsp. of sugar. Set aside to cool. Combine the mayo and pineapple juice to create your sauce. Cook¬† your burger patties to your desired doneness… and start layering. Smother each bun with some pineapple mayo, then top with your cooked turkey patty, cilantro, (melt your cheese on your patties if desired…) caramelized onions, pineapple slice and Teriyaki sauce. Top with the bun and you’re good to go! Delicious.

Happy BBQ-ing! XO-Wendy
