Whether or not you’re a fan of pineapple on pizza (#teamnot), you’ll absolutely love throwing a slice of grilled pineapple on your burgers this summer! The first time I tried pineapple on a burger, it was on a teriyaki-style burger at a popular chain restaurant. It was delicious! Since then, grilled pineapple has become a total summer staple in our house.
Grilled pineapple is so good on its own, but I especially love it on burgers, like this Sriracha burger! With grilling season upon us, it’s time to spice up your grilling recipes with this slightly sweet and savory burger combo!
So let’s get down to business! What makes a great burger? In my opinion, it’s homemade patties infused with lots of flavor, a wide variety of toppings to choose from, and of course, a great bun! We love Pepperidge Farm® Hamburger Buns. There are a wide variety of flavors to choose from (we love the 100% Whole Wheat buns) and they’re always baked the right way with special touches!
We also love spicy food! But during the summer, I don’t want my food to be totally burn-my-mouth-off hot. It’s hot enough outside already! That’s why Sriracha has enough kick to boost the flavor of your summer favorites without turning up the heat! I only used a teaspoon of Sriracha sauce to make my burger patties, but then I gave my burger an extra kick with Sriracha mayo. The amount of heat you want in your burger is totally up to you!
The nice thing about adding grilled pineapple to this burger is that it balances out the spicy flavor. It gives the burger a little tangy sweetness that’s perfect for summertime! Plus, if you’ve never grilled pineapple, it’s the perfect time to start! Grilling pineapple slices brings out the sweetness of the fruit. Save some extra grilled pineapple for dessert. It’s awesome on top of vanilla ice cream, too!
