Piña Colada Burgers
  • 2lbs ground beef
  • 1/4cup teriyaki sauce
  • Salt and pepper
  • 2 Tablespoons buttermelted
  • 4slices of pineapplecore intact*
  • 1/3cup piña colada sauce
  • 1/3cup mayonnaise
  • Sliced Colby jack cheese
  • 4-8slices of cooked bacon
  • 4 hamburger buns
  • piña colada sauce
  • 1 small can crushed pineapple
  • 2/3cup cream of coconut
  • 1/3cup sour cream
  1. Make piña colada sauce, mix 1/3 cup piña colada sauce and mayonnaise. Set aside.
  2. Mix ground beef with the 1/4 cup teriyaki sauce. Form into 8 patties. Press the centers of the patties down so that the burgers don’t get to thick in the middle when you grill them. Season each side with salt and pepper.
  3. Preheat grill to medium/high heat. Grill patties on each side for 2-3 minutes for medium rare, 3-4 minutes for medium and 5-6 minutes for well done.
  4. While burgers are cooking, drizzle teriyaki sauce on each side of the patty.
  5. The last minute of cooking, add the Colby jack cheese to each patty.
  6. Meanwhile, grill the pineapple, brush with a little melted butter until marks appear, about 2 minutes on each side. Remove to a plate and cut out the core. *Leaving the core in while cooking will help the pineapple to not fall apart and will be easier to turn.
  7. Grill buns until grill marks appear.
  8. Spread the piña colada mayo on each side of the bun.
  9. Place the burger, pineapple and bacon on the bottom, top with teriyaki sauce and the top bun.
