Based on other reviews, I seasoned the burgers with salt and pepper, but they were still just a big ball of meat, and I just didn't like them at all, I'm sorry. Also, it says it serves 4, but when you read the recipe, it only makes 2 burgers. This was a little confusing, but luckily I had extra mince in the freezer. I did enjoy the sauce though, and I still like the concept of the pineapple inside the burger, I just think it needs a better burger recipe. The kids and I couldn't finish ours, so I was going to rate it a 2, but hubby didn't mind them, so I changed to a 3.

A very simple recipe....but like Sam#3 I thought the burger itself needed a little more attention.
Absolutely loved the sauce...which really couldn't be any easier...completely makes the burger!
Made for PRMR.

Loved the pineapple inside the burgers! Made them very juicy. The burger was kinda bland though. I want to try adding crushed pineapple to the ground beef itself next time.
