- 2 pounds ground beef
- 1/4 cup teriyaki sauce
- Salt and pepper
- 2 Tablespoons butter, melted
- 4 slices of pineapple, core intact*
- 1/3 cup pina colada sauce**
- Sliced Colby jack cheese
- 4-8 slices of cooked bacon
- 4 hamburger buns
- Ingredients for piña colada sauce**
- 1/3 cup mayonnaise
- 1 small can crushed pineapple
- 2/3 cup cream of coconut
- 1/3 cup sour cream
Make piña colada sauce by mixing mayonnaise, crushed pineapple, cream of coconut, and sour cream together.
Mix ground beef with the 1/4 cup teriyaki sauce. Form into 8 patties. Press the centers of the patties down so that the burgers don’t get to thick in the middle when you grill them. Season each side with salt and pepper.
Preheat grill to medium/high heat. Grill patties on each side for 2-3 minutes for medium rare, 3-4 minutes for medium and 5-6 minutes for well done. While burgers are cooking, drizzle teriyaki sauce on each side of patty. The last minute of cooking, add the Colby jack cheese to each patty.
Meanwhile, grill the pineapple, brush with a little melted butter until marks appear, about 2 minutes on each side. Remove to a plate and cut out the core.
Grill buns until grill marks appear. Spread the piña colada mayo on each side of the bun. Place the burger, pineapple and bacon on the bottom, top with teriyaki sauce and the top bun.
*Leaving the core in while cooking will help the pineapple to not fall apart and will be easier to turn.
