Fire up the grill this weekend and make these Teriyaki Turkey Burgers with Grilled Pineapple and Onions. The grilled toppings on these burgers put them over the top!
I can’t believe the last weekend in May is nearly here! The schools had their last day yesterday which has significantly cut down on the traffic on my 5 minute drive to the gym in the morning…I know, it’s a rough life I lead. Whenever school get’s out it really makes it feel like summer has started even though it doesn’t officially start for almost another month. What better way to kick off summer vacation than with a Memorial Day barbecue and grilling up these Teriyaki Turkey Burgers with Grilled Pineapple and Onions!
We’ve been grilling pretty much everything for the past week and a half. Ever since it’s warmed up we can’t get enough grilled meats and vegetables. Grilled chicken and fish are on the menu at least 2-3 nights a week with grilled vegetables right along side them. I like to surprise my husband every now and then and grill up some burgers. He of course would prefer beef, but I’m more of a turkey burger kind of girl and if I’m doing the grilling I’m choosing what we’re eating.
My latest burgers were these Teriyaki Turkey Burgers with Grilled Pineapple and Onions. I love teriyaki anything so it only made sense to add it into the burger mix and use some of the extra as a sauce on top. I took an extra step and made my own teriyaki sauce so I could control the ingredients and sweetness of it. It’s a super easy sauce to make and only took a few extra minutes, plus it tastes awesome!
To add a ton of extra flavor to the turkey burgers I grilled some fresh pineapple and thick slices of red onions. I can’t stand raw onions, but I love them when they’re grilled, caramelized or sautéed. The flavor is much sweet and the potency of them disappears. If you’ve never grilled pineapple, just take my word and do it, you won’t regret it! The final flourish to this beauty of a burger is the avocado spread. Instead of mayo use this healthy and much tastier alternative. Avocado, Greek yogurt, lime, honey and salt and pepper are all you need to make this tasty topping. Let’s get our grill on this weekend and celebrate Memorial Day and school being out with these Teriyaki Turkey Burgers with Grilled Pineapple and Onions!
