Crunchy grilled bell pepper rings and sweet pineapple slices add some tropical flair to a plate of easy grilled burgers: if you’re getting a little tired of the same-old ketchup/mustard/pickle routine, you’ve got to try this one. Instead of the typical beef or turkey patties, this one uses a beef/pork mixture for an extra-juicy burger and a slightly different take; together with the sweet toppings, the effect is delicious.
To make the burgers, you could just as easily use 1 ½ lbs of ground pork with no beef – it just depends on what flavor you like. And if you don’t have any ham, there’s always a homemade fix for that!
These burgers are perfect for a cookout where you might be wondering what to do without a bun – the big pile of toppings gives you a great presentation and looks so good on top of the burger that any thoughts of missing bread fade into the background. Add some condiments – spicy mayo or fresh guacamole would be perfect – and maybe a simple fresh salad for an easy meal that you’ll be dying to sink your teeth into.
