Hawaiian Burger

Hawaiian Burger 2 I really like pineapple.  A lot. In fact, one of my favorite sides to make that goes with anything is my Grilled Sweet Pineapple Slices. Yum. Heck, we’ve even put grilled pineapple in a drink with our Pineapple Mojito! What’s my point? Well, it was only a matter of time until we put it on a burger. It just makes too much sense. This does not disappoint. A perfectly grilled burger topped with Swiss cheese, grilled onions, and of course the grilled pineapple – all put together on a light and buttery Hawaiin bun. Aloha, deliciousness.   Hawaiian Burger 1 

Hawaiian Burger

Prep Time: 10 minutes

Cook Time: 20 minutes

Total Time: 30 minutes

Hawaiian Burger


  • 1 lb ground chuck (or beef)
  • 4 slices of Swiss Cheese
  • 1 can of pineapple slices (or fresh if you dare to slice yourself)
  • 1 red onion
  • 1 tbs granulated garlic
  • 1 tbs onion powder
  • Salt & Pepper to Taste
  • Hawaiian Hamburger Buns


  1. For Burgers: Mix meat with garlic, onion, salt & pepper. Make into 4 patties, set aside.
  2. Set up grill for direct cooking.
  3. For pineapple, simply grill for 2-3 minutes per side until golden brown. I didn't add any spices.
  4. For onions, I simply put slices of onion directly on grill to brown them up. 3-5 minutes total.
  5. Grill burgers as you normally would - high temp for searing until medium (140-145). 2 minutes before they're done, add your cheese and close lid to melt.
  6. Assemble burger with meat, cheese, pineapple and onion, then add your favorite condiments!
