I love this combination of flavors and we are big fans of teriyaki pineapple burgers here. I recently made mini meatballs with this recipe and they turned out amazing! You can do them in the slow cooker or the oven and they are a great party/luau food!
I didn't use the ginger because I'm not a fan. I also should have thought about adding some kind of spice to the meat instead. It turned out a bit bland- probably not due to the original recipe. If you omit the ginger make sure you add a little something something instead!
very delicious this is a new staple at our house. These do well in a skillet on top of the stove too. Any kind of white cheese on top is good we used muenster. I also substituted ground ginger from the spice cabinet when I ran out of fresh ginger and they tasted just as good.
Wanted a healthier way to make burgers. Of all the turkey burger recipes this is the best we have tried. Since turkey is such a lean meat/protein I would suggest using the ground turkey that is 93/7. I put the formed burgers in the freezer for about 30 minutes. This made the burgers firm and we had no problem with the burgers falling apart while on the grill. The grilled pineapple adds the sweet while the cheese adds the saltly/savory. Cheddar cheese is what we use however I am looking to try another type cheese just to switch it up a bit.
The recipe calls for canned pineapple juice... don't use fresh juice. Fresh pineapple juice contains an enzyme (Bromelain) that breaks down proteins. When this is allowed to sit with your meat it keeps everything from sticking together... resulting in a burger that has the texture of canned dog food you threw on the grill.
