Teriyaki Burgers with Grilled Pineapple Recipe

Teriyaki Burgers with Grilled Pineapple Recipe
As summer approaches and the weather warms up, most of us look forward to getting the grill ready to cook all our favorite grilled specialties. Memorial Day is the first holiday of summer, and it’s a great time to introduce the following Teriyaki and Grilled Pineapple Burgers as an alternative to regular grilled burgers. This recipe comes from Kari Coates, an excellent cook and busy business owner, who serves them often. They are a favorite with her family and friends.
If you have a little extra time, you can serve these burgers with Teriyaki Bacon Jam which is a great condiment that can not only be served on these burgers, but also on sandwiches, or alongside steaks, chicken, and fish. The teriyaki bacon jam keeps two weeks or more in the refrigerator if it lasts that long.
