Grilled Pineapple and Jalapeno Burgers



This recipe came from a food blog I enjoy reading http://noblepig.com/2008/11/03/lazy-taxpayers-bipartisan-burger.aspx My husband said this was the best burger he has ever had!!! The grilled pineapple added a nice sweetness while the jalapeno added a nice level of spiciness. I also added some Gouda cheese to melt over the burgers! We will be having these again. I have to thank my husband for doing the grilling. It was raining outside and I was just going to cook them inside, but he said he would do the grilling. Men love to grill. I guess they can help out and drink a beer at the same time!!

Grilled Pineapple and Jalapeno Burgers

1 lb ground sirloin
1 tsp Worcestershire sauce
1 tbsp dried minced onion
1/4 red onion, grated
salt and pepper
8 slices pineapple, canned
4 jalapenos, slice in half (seeds can be discarded)
4 slices Gouda cheese
mayonnaise
lettuce

Combine beef, Worcestershire sauce, onions, salt, and pepper.
Shape into 4 patties.
Grill burgers on medium high heat for 6 minutes per side.
Melt the cheese over the burgers.
Grill pineapple and jalapenos for about 3-4 minutes.
Assemble burgers with 2 slices of pineapple, and 2 halves of jalapeno.
Add condiments of your choice (We added mayo and lettuce).
