Teriyaki Hawaiian Burgers

It has started snowing here and I find myself dreaming about some of the places we have visited. One of our favourites was Hawaii. Hawaii has a great mix of Japanese and island foods. This burger was the perfect thing to combine those flavours and fill my belly. We don't have a BBQ so I pan fried the burgers and they ended up being flavourful, juicy and delicious. The pineapple,teriyaki and cheese make this burger a little different from the norm while keeping the satisfaction of having a burger.

Here is the burger mix prior to the egg and bread crumbs:

  • 1-1.5 lbs of ground beef
  • 1/4 cup soy sauce
  • 1/4 cup teriyaki
  • 4 cloves garlic (minced)
  • 1/2 medium onion (thinly sliced)
  • 2 green onions (sliced)
  • 1/2 tsp red pepper flakes
  • 1 egg
  • 1/3 cup bread crumbs

I mixed everything other than the eggs and bread crumbs a couple hours before we ate so that the onions would soften up a little and the flavours would combine evenly. Add the egg and crumbs and form into patties and cook however you prefer. I took the pineapple slices and warmed them up in the pan I cooked the burgers in. I topped the burgers with either a Havarti or spicy Monterey Jack slice.
