Hamburgers Barbecued with Pineapple and Bacon

    25 minutes

    A pineapple and bacon burger all cooked together. Slightly simpler, though not quite as good, is to cook the ingredients separately and combine at the end.

    I will never eat a regular hamburger at home again!!! This was great, We had to make do with the George Foreman as we ran out of propane. I cooked the pineapple and bacon separately and then just layered it onto top of cooked hamburger. Next time I will stick a slice of cheddar in there. The pineapple gives it a tangy taste. I think this may be even better on ground pork. Thank you! ***UPDATE- can be made the same way and tastes just as good with a boca burger and the soy bacon from Morningstar Farms.  -  27 May 2003  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    I made these for our Labor day cookout yesterday. I was so embaressed. This is a horrible recipe. The burgers fall apart and into the grill and the bacon didn't even cook all the way. I used lean ground beef, but still the combination of the hamburger and bacon grease kept threatening to put the fire out. Basicaly when all was said and done the hotdogs, that were suppost to be for the kids, turned out to be all we ended up eating.  -  03 Sep 2002  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    What a yummy recipe? As other reviewers suggested, grilled the bacon and pineapple separately. I didn't have rings of pineapple so I used tidbits, placing them on a piece of foil. Treat the burgers very gently. I added a bit of plain breadcrumbs to the seasoned meat to help everything bind and flipped them very carefully. They were deliclious and went well with the Tropical Salad with Pineapple Vinigarette recipe from this site. Flavors matched beautifully. Also served with a great Napa Zinfindel. What a great meal.  -  13 Aug 2003  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
