Whether you’re serving them for a weeknight meal, a Sunday picnic, or a game day party, these Hawaiian teriyaki burgers are simple, delicious and on the table in under 30 minutes! Ground beef is simply formed into patties and grilled to a charred perfection. Topped with pineapple, bacon, avocado, lettuce and sesame seeds, this burger takes on a whole new level of flavor.

I debated on whether or not to post this recipe right now. First off, we are getting out of summer season foods. For most, grilling burgers becomes a thing of the past. I thought about waiting until next spring, but honestly I didn’t really want to wait that long. Second of all, I have come to terms with the fact that I hate photographing sandwiches and burgers. I can never get them just the way I want, which is why there are only two photos of them.

The burger gods are against me when it comes to photographing them. Ugh.

For a hot minute I thought about getting rid of the post altogether, but then I thought “what a waste. I can’t do that.” I then thought about the fact that Zach and I grill all year round. 10 feet of snow and -20 degrees F has nothing on us.

With football season beginning, people will still be grilling right? I think so. In the end, here we are, and I’ve decided to post this recipe for Hawaiian teriyaki burgers anyway. They really are delicious you guys, and the Hawaiian teriyaki sauce makes it. It’s so easy to make yourself that I promise you won’t buy the store-bought stuff again. I like to make a big batch and store it for quick marinades and/or sauces.

Recipe for these Hawaiian teriyaki burgers is below! Pair them with a smoked porter. It will really bring out that beefiness in the burger! Have a great day everyone! xo
