Hawaiian Burger
  • 1 can (9 oz.) pineapple slices
  • 1 lb. ground beef
  • 1 tsp. salt
  • dash pepper
  • Island Sauce
  • Reserved pineapple syrup
  • 1/2 cup catsup
  • 1/4 cup brown sugar
  • 2 tsp. Worcestershire sauce
  • a few drops of liquid smoke
  1. Make Island sauce by mixing ingredients and heat to boiling.
  2. Drain pineapple, reserving 2 tablespoons of syrup for sauce. Season meat with salt and pepper. Press a tablespoon of meat into the center of each pineapple slice, overlapping meat on pineapple around center on both sides of slice so meat won't fall out while cooking. Shape remaining meat into four patties, slightly larger in diameter than the pineapple slices. Broil burgers on a grill over hot coals for 12 to 15 minutes, turning once.
  3. Broil meat filled pineapple slices, turning carefully and brushing with Island Sauce until the meat is done and the pineapple is glazed.
  4. To assemble, place each burger atop a bun half or slice of toast. Top with pineapple burger. Garnish with a kabob of cherry tomato and green olive
