Surprise Burgers

"My favorite burgers are 'Surprise Burgers'. The pineapple inside the burger adds a hint of sweetness, while the sauce adds some tanginess! Warning: the added sauce and pineapple makes for a mess with little ones!"

  1. Preheat a grill for high heat.
  2. Divide the ground beef into four portions, and form patties around pineapple rings so that none of the pineapple is showing. In a small saucepan, mix together the ketchup, brown sugar, and mustard. Heat until sugar is dissolved. Set aside.
  3. Place burgers on the grill, and cook for about 5 minutes per side, or until well done. Spoon some of the brown sugar sauce over the burgers before serving.

WONDERFUL!!! My husband and I grilled these burgers the other night. The pineapple helps to keep the lean meat very moist. The sauce is like icing on a cake. This is one of the best recipes ...

Awesome burgers. I used crushed pineapples also. Added some diced jalapeno too. For the sauce I added a few tbs of the pineapple juice and left out the mustard. Very good. will make again!

The flavor of this is unbelievable - the burgers were incredibly moist due to the pineapple, and the simple sauce is out of this world. I put a little of the sauce on the burgers as they were c...
