I love hamburgers and pineapple, so it just seemed natural for me to combine them. My family frequently requests these unique burgers. It's a nice change of pace from the same old boring hamburger.—Joi McKim-Jones, Waikoloa, Hawaii

MY REVIEW

I think this would also be good with a slice of pepper jack cheese.

These are a wonderful taste treat. I sautéed my onions in olive oil instead of the butter. I had fresh arugula on hand so used this in lieu of the lettuce. The second time I made them I used the lettuce the recipe calls for. Both are delicious.

Hubby called this a "taste treat". To make them healthier I eliminated the cheese and bacon, cooked the onion in olive oil and used that same pan to warm the pineapple.

Excellent recipe.

My husband called these a taste treat. For our health's sake I eliminated the cheese and bacon. I cooked the onion in olive oil, used the same frypan to warm the pineapple. It was excellent.

These burgers are absolutely wonderful. I wasn't sure about the pineapple slice but, believe me, it makes this burger. This recipe will be a regular at our house.
