This Grilled Pineapple and Teriyaki Turkey Burger was inspired by one that my husband ordered at Red Robin one night. I hope you enjoy as much as we did.
Years ago, we dined at Red Robin for my husband’s birthday and he ordered this burger. He raved about it and asked me to try to recreate it. Grilling brings out the sweetness of the pineapple that blends well with the teriyaki.
Grilled Pineapple Teriyaki Turkey Burgers
- 1.25 lb (20 oz) ground turkey – You could use ground beef, we just prefer ground turkey.
- ½ Cup chopped red onion
- 2 garlic cloves, minced
- 3 Tbsp Teriyaki sauce
- ½ tsp ground ginger
- 1 Tbsp honey
- ½ tsp salt
- 4 cheddar cheese slices
- 4 (1/2 inch) slices grilled pineapple
- 4 really good and sturdy buns
Using a spoon or really clean hands, combine the turkey, onion, garlic, Teriyaki, ginger, honey, and salt. Form into 4 equal burgers.
Spray both sides of each patty with non-stick cooking spray or drizzle with olive oil.
Pre-heat grill to medium-high. Place patties on hot grill and close lid. Grill for 5 minutes.
Flip the burgers, close the lid and grill the other side for another 5 minutes or until burgers are cooked all the way through.
This burger deserves and demands a really good, sturdy bun. Don’t let it down.Stack one slice of cheese and one grilled pineapple slice on top of a burger and add your favorite condiments.
