Grilled Maui Burgers

  • Prep: 15 minutes
  • Serves: 4

Ingredients & Directions

  • 4 slices fresh pineapple
  • 1 cup fresh salsa or pico de gallo
  • 1 pound lean ground beef
  • 4 slices deli Monterey Jack cheese (about 3 ounces)
  • 4 Pepperidge Farm® Soft White Hamburger Buns, split and toasted
  • 1 peeled pitted avocado, cut into 8 slices

Lightly oil the grill rack and heat the grill to medium.  Grill the pineapple for 5 minutes or until tender, turning it over once halfway through the grill time.  Remove the pineapple to a cutting board.  Dice the pineapple.  Stir the pineapple and 2/3 cup salsa in a medium bowl.

Thoroughly mix the beef and the remaining salsa in a large bowl.  Shape the beef mixture into 4 (1/2-inch-thick) burgers.

Grill the burgers for 10 minutes for medium or until desired doneness, turning the burgers over once halfway through the grill time.  Top the burgers with the cheese.

Serve the burgers on the buns.  Top with the avocado and the pineapple-salsa mixture.
