The Ultimate Hawaiian Burger

The Ultimate Hawaiian Burger As with any construction project, it is important to start with the base. If your burger patty is not flavorful and delicious, the toppings can’t do anything but mask the flavor.

This makes 4 very generous hamburgers.

Patty Ingredients
1 egg, beaten
1 bunch fresh chives, minced
2 cloves garlic, minced
Pinch of sea salt
Freshly ground black pepper
1 pound fresh ground chuck
2 to 3 tablespoons canola oil

Topping Ingredients
4 fresh pineapple slices, 1/2-inch thick slices
1/4 cup unsalted butter, melted
1 cup mozzarella cheese
4 brioche buns, toasted and cut in half
Red onion, sliced into 4 ½ inch thick slices
8 pickle slices
Jalapenoe, sliced
4 slices of pepper jack or plain jack cheese

Sauce Ingredients
½ cup crumbled Feta cheese or blue cheese
1/4 cup mayonnaise
1 avacado, mashed
Pinch sea salt
Freshly ground black pepper

Directions
Add the beef and seasonings and gently mix together  for 30 seconds but you don’t want to over mix, cover and set aside.

Turn the grill on to high heat and once up to temperature, turn it down to medium. Brush the pineapple slices with a bit of oil and allow them to cook for 30-60 seconds on each side until beautiful grill marks are visible. Set this aside.

Divide the ground beef mixture into four equal parts and create the patties so they are 1-inch thick. Add the patties to the grill and allow them to cook for 3-5 minutes on each side depending on how you like your patties cooked.

In a non-stick pan, toast the jalapeno and pickle slices, add the mozzarella cheese and dump into a plate immediately and cover with the hot pan. This will melt the cheese.

Sauce Directions
Combine together the ingredient.

Assembly
On the bun, add the sauce to the bottom followed by the patty, sliced cheese, onion, quarter of the mozzarella topping. Place the pineapple slices on the side along with the top of the bun.
