Recipe: Grilled Hawaiian Burgers with Onion and Pineapple

24 May

We. Love. Hamburgers. (Want proof? This blog is only three months old and this is our third burger recipe. See the other two here: Naked Turkey Burgers, Blue Cheese Burgers.)

We like em naked, we like em clothed, and yes my purist friends, we even like them with ketchup. (Some would say that last statement is blasphemy, and to them I say, “get over it”.)

Because of our love for all things burgers and grilling, we’re constantly on the lookout for more ways to indulge in this seemingly all-American food choice. And hey, if we can do it semi-healthfully, we will! Here’s a recipe that never fails to satisfy AND encourage a healthy lifestyle.

Grilled Hawaiian Burgers with Onion and Pineapple

Recipe borrowed from


  • 1 pound ground beef
  • ¼ cup scallions, sliced
  • 3 tbsp teriyaki sauce
  • 1 tbsp ginger root, freshly grated
  • 2 tsp minced garlic
  • 4 slices of pineapple
  • ½ medium vidalia onion, cut into rings
  • cooking spray
  • ¼ cup cilantro, chopped


  1. Prepare the grill.
  2. In a medium bowl, combine beef, scallions, teriyaki sauce, ginger, and garlic until thoroughly mixed. Form four equal sized patties.
  3. Lightly coat burgers, pineapple, and onion with cooking spray, place on grill.
  4. Grill every thing until done. Pineapple and onion should have golden edges, burgers to your liking.
  5. Serve burger naked with pineapple and onions.
