Pineapple Bacon Burgers


This easy pineapple burger recipe was one of my grandmother's favorites that we would make when she visited. Seasoned hamburger and a slice of pineapple are slapped together and wrapped in bacon. It's that easy — and it adds a wonderful flavor to a regular burger!

  • 2 pounds lean ground beef

  • ½ cup prepared barbecue sauce

  • 1 (8 ounce) can sliced pineapple

  • 8 slices bacon


  1. Prepare the grill for indirect cooking.

  2. In a large bowl, mix together ground beef and barbecue sauce. Season with salt and pepper.

  3. Shape mixture into 4 large patties. Place a slice of pineapple on top of each. Crisscross 2 bacon strips around each burger, and secure with toothpicks.

  4. Brush oil on the grate. Place burgers on the grill over medium-low heat. Cook, covered, until burger is cooked through. Turn often to avoid burning bacon.
