We’re looking at temperatures worthy of breaking out the grill this weekend! Be sure to save the juice from the canned pineapple in this recipe for a yummy tropical drink on the deck. Feel free to use fresh pineapple, too!
Teriyaki Turkey Burgers
½ c. dry bread crumbs
3 green onions, chopped
4 Tablespoons teriyaki sauce,
¼ tsp. onion powder
1 pound ground turkey or chicken (85/15 mix – avoid the extra lean)
1 can (8 oz) sliced pineapple, drained and patted dry
4 hamburger buns
Combine egg, bread crumbs, onions, 2 tablespoons teriyaki sauce and onion powder in large bowl. Add turkey and mix well. Shape into 4 patties. If using outdoor grill, coat grill rack with cooking spray before starting the grill. Preheat grill. Grill patties over medium heat for 6-8 minutes on each side or until meat thermometer reads 165 degrees, brushing with remaining teriyaki sauce during the last 5 minutes.
Grill pineapple slices for 3-4 minutes on each side or until heated through. Serve burgers and pineapple on buns.
