Pineapple-Stuffed Burgers Recipe

"I really enjoy making these special burgers with a surprise inside," writes Ann Couch of Halifax, North Carolina. The homemade sauce, with brown sugar, mustard and ketchup, makes these tropical grilled sandwiches even better.
TOTAL TIME: Prep/Total Time: 30 min. YIELD:2 servings

Ingredients

  • 1/4 cup packed brown sugar
  • 1/4 cup ketchup
  • 1 tablespoon prepared mustard
  • 1/2 pound lean ground beef (90% lean)
  • 2 slices unsweetened pineapple
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt
  • 1/8 teaspoon pepper
  • 2 hamburger buns, split
  • 2 lettuce leaves

Directions

  • 1. In a small saucepan, combine the brown sugar, ketchup and mustard. Cook over medium heat for 2-3 minutes, stirring occasionally.
  • 2. Meanwhile, shape beef into four patties. Place pineapple slices on two patties; top with remaining patties. Seal edges; sprinkle with salt and pepper.
  • 3. Using long-handled tongs, moisten a paper towel with cooking oil and lightly coat the grill rack. Grill burgers, covered, over medium-hot heat or broil 4 in. from the heat for 7-9 minutes on each side or until a meat thermometer reads 160° and juices run clear. Serve on buns with sauce and lettuce. Yield: 2 servings.

"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."

"Came across this same recipe a couple of weeks ago in my 1970's Betty Crocker cook book. It makes a very tasty burger."

"I was just watching "Build A Better Burger Challenge" on foodnetwork and one of the contestants had a pineapple jerk burger, but I can't find the recipe through food network. Your recipe sounds great and I especially like the 2 serving idea since I live alone. I will definitely try this burger and give you a rating...Sounds like it will be fast & easy as well."
