Hawaiian Teriyaki Burgers

This recipe was submitted by Traci McConnell of Hendersonville, NC, in the Carolina Eats March Hoops Recipe Sweepstakes presented by Ingles.


1 pound ground sirloin
1/2 pound ground pork
1/2 cup finely chopped red onion
1 egg, slightly beaten
1/2 cup Panko bread crumbs
3/4 teaspoon minced garlic
1/4 teaspoon red pepper flakes
1 teaspoon McCormick Grill Mates Hamburger Seasoning
2 tablespoons spicy brown mustard
1/4 cup teriyaki sauce
Vegetable oil, for brushing on the grill rack
12 Kings Hawaiian Rolls, split
Fresh spinach leaves
1 20 oz. can pineapple tidbits, drained
4 slices bacon, cooked & crumbled
Fresh spinach leaves


  • Prepare a medium-hot fire in a charcoal grill with a cover or preheat a gas grill to medium-high.
  • To make the patties, combine the sirloin, pork, onion, egg, breadcrumbs, garlic, pepper, Grill Mates seasoning, mustard, and teriyaki sauce in a large bowl. Handle the meat as little as possible to avoid compacting it, mix well.
  • Divide the mixture into 12 equal portions and form the patties to fit the buns.
  • When the grill is ready, brush the grill rack with vegetable oil. Place the patties on the rack, cover, and cook, turning once, until done to preference, 7 minutes on each side for well done.
  • During the last few minutes of cooking, place the buns, cut side down, on the outer edges of the rack to toast lightly.
  • To assemble the burgers, on each roll bottom, place several spinach leaves, then place a patty, pineapple, bacon crumbles, and a couple of jalapeno slices.
  • Brush bun tops with teriyaki sauce and serve.
  • Makes 12 slider burgers
