Labor day “the last holiday” of the summer closes out the BBQ season for most, but here is something to sweeten up your last days. This recipe is a hit in my book because pineapples are one of my favorite fruits for many reasons. Enjoy!
1 can (20 oz) DOLE Pineapple slices
½ cup teriyaki sauce
2 lbs. ground turkey
1 tsp. fresh ginger, grated
½ cup panko bread crumbs
8 whole grain hamburger buns
8 slices cheddar or Monterey Jack Cheese
Drain pineapple; reserve ½ cup juice. Reserve 2 pineapple slices for snack or other use.
Stir together teriyaki sauce and reserved pineapple juice in small bowl.
Mix together turkey, ginger, bread crumbs and ¼ cup teriyaki mixture. Shape into 8 patties.
Grill patties, brushing with remaining teriyaki mixture, until brown and cooked through. Place pineapple slices on grill and cook until lightly golden brown.
Serve burgers on buns with cheese and pineapple.
