MY REVIEW
Reviewed Jun. 2, 2014

While this is good and simple, I do agree that it would have tasted the same had the pineapple been on the outside. I did make this again with the following changes:1) grilled the pineapple for 1-2 mins each side, until nice char marks appear.2) when making patties, I used salt, pepper, and garlic on the inside with a light brushing of sauce.3) when burgers are fresh off the grill, I brushed with a little more of the sauce.Tasted great!

The sauce adds a great taste to these burgers, but I wasn't impressed with the "stuffed" part...it would have tasted the same and been easier to just top the burgers with grilled pineapple.
