IMG_6822Looking for something yummy to grill for your 4th of July barbecue?  Try these delicious Hawaiian Burgers!  They’re my daughter’s all time favorite!


4 Lean Hamburger Patties

4 Bakery Hamburger Buns with Sesame Seeds

1 Can of Pineapple Slices

4 Slices of Swiss Cheese

1/2 Cup of Teriyaki Sauce

1/4 Cup of Brown Sugar


  • Mix teriyaki sauce and brown sugar together in a small bowl.
  • Divide mixture into two bowls.  Put hamburger patties into one bowl to marinate. Put the pineapple slices into the other bowl to marinate.
  • Marinate for 30 min to overnight.
  • Heat your barbecue grill and put the hamburger patties on to cook.  Approximately halfway through the cooking time, begin brushing the leftover marinade over the burgers, turning frequently and adding more marinate each time until the burgers are completely cooked and the teriyaki sauce has caramelized.
  • Top each hamburger patty with a slice of Swiss cheese.  Remove the  burgers from the grill before the cheese has completely melted and place them on the buns.
  • Put the pineapple slices on the grill and baste with marinade.  Turn them over and do the same to the other side.  When pineapples are completely warmed through and covered with some of the caramelized teriyaki sauce remove them from the grill and put one or two on top of each burger.

Serve with chips, salads and fresh fruits and vegetables.
