Teriyaki-Pineapple Burgers

Here's the Dish

These teriyaki-pineapple burgers are wonderful to make on the grill during the summer months.  In fact, they are pretty much a staple in my summer diet paired with grilled veggies! However, in the winter months, a non-stick pan can work just as well! I add the pineapple on top because I have tried to use it in the burgers and they tend to fall apart due to the excess moisture.

I broke the recipe down into single burger portions because very often I just make a few burgers at a time and freeze the rest of the meat.  If you would like to make the whole package of ground meat, you can just measure out the meat with a half cup (per burger) and multiply the recipe according to how many burgers you make.Also, you can always use lean ground beef for this recipe instead of the ground turkey if you prefer.  Just make sure it is around 150 calories per 4 oz serving of meat.

Method

The estimated total time to make this recipe is 20 minutes.

1

In a large bowl, combine turkey, marinade, garlic salt and pepper. Mix well and shape into 4 (1/2-inch-thick) patties. Coat non-stick pan (or grill) with cooking spray.

2

Cook patties in pan over medium-high heat 6 to 7 minutes per side or until no longer pink in center and remove from pan.

3

Place rolls cut side down on pan if desired during last 1 to 2 minutes of cooking to toast lightly. Serve patties in buns and top with pineapple, tomato and lettuce if desired.

Ingredients

4 Small light hamburger bun 1
1 lbLean ground turkey
4 tbs Teriyaki marinade 3
PinchGarlic powder, salt, pepper and sweetener of choice, or to taste
4Pineapple ring

1 Look for buns with around 80 calories and at least 3g fiber

2 Look for a ground meat with 150 calories and 8gm fat or less per serving

3 Look for a marinade with about 20 – 25 calories per tbsp (I like the one by Lawry’s)

Katie's Tip!

These taste great topped with grilled pineapple!

My fiance is always hassling me about loving burgers and they aren’t healthy to eat, so this will be a great alternative for summer parties!

I loved these! This is the first thing I have made from your website, although I have been admiring ever since my sister told me about it! My fiance doesn’t like turkey burgers, but these were so good he even admitted it!

Could you use ground chicken instead of turkey?

Does the WWP value include the bun or just the meat and pineapple? And does using ground chicken change the WWP? The lean chicken at our store had 10g less fat per lb than the lean turkey. I LOVE your food. I have tried about four recipes and they have all been a huge hit with my family. Thank you for making healthier eating interesting and delicious!
