Pork Burgers with Grilled Pineapple

Oink, Oink! I get tired of the good ole fashioned hamburger … we eat a lot of them in the summer. No matter how much I love them, I like to experiment with what goes between the bun. While searching for some inspiration, I ran across these BBQ Pork Burgers from Leite’s Culinaria. They looked darn good, so I headed out to make my own rendition.

I stuck to the general premise of using BBQ sauce, but I added a little Accent seasoning … a trick I learned from our local golf course head burger chef! I’m a sucker for Sweet Baby Ray’s BBQ sauce, too. If I want sweet, that’s my go-to sauce!

It didn’t take long to grill these … about 4 minutes on each side. I added some fresh pineapple rings and asparagus to the grill, too. Grilled fruit, especially pineapple, is one of my favorite summertime foods! Add a slice of sweet onion and extra BBQ sauce, and you’re set to go! 

MPG wasn’t too keen on the idea of pork burgers, so I didn’t tell him the night I made these that they were pork. Yeah, sneaky, I know. He actually raved about them. Noodle gobbled hers down as fast as she could. I’d say that was a home run!
