    Marty Fredericks's Note:

    I ate this at a restaurant called INDiGO in St. Thomas, U.S Virgin Islands and it was the BEST burger I'd ever had! Absolutely wonderful! Since I didn't have much time, I used honey roasted peanuts instead of a peanut sauce, canned pineapple instead of fresh and guessed at the rest...kind of made it my own. They turned out so good that I just had to share them with you all. Eat these burgers at your next gathering and your guests will be raving!

    Ingredients:

    Yield:

    Burgers

    Units: US | Metric

    • 1 lb hamburger (try a mix of 1/2lb of burger and 1/2lb of ground sausage...mmmm!)
    • 1 egg
    • 1/2 cup breadcrumbs
    • 3 tablespoons Worcestershire sauce
    • 1 cup shredded Mexican blend cheese (Kraft makes a blend like that. It's got monterey jack, cheddar and one or two others in it. Tasty to)
    • salt and pepper, to taste (Any spices that you like, I prefer "Slap Ya Mama" - GREAT cajun spice! www.slapyamama.com)
    • 1 (12 ounce) can pineapple slices
    • 1 (16 ounce) package sliced ham
    • 1 (10 ounce) package cheddar cheese, sliced
    • 1 (16 ounce) can honey roasted peanuts
    • 1 tomato, sliced
    • 1 head lettuce
    • 4 hamburger buns

    Directions:

    1. 1
      Mix first 6 ingredients well in a bowl with your hands, to make sure that it's really all mixed well, and then form into 4 burger patties.
    2. 2
      Mush a bunch (10-15) of the peanuts into each patty and then put them on the grill, peanut side down.
    3. 3
      When they are almost halfway done (depending on your heat, this could be anywhere from 2-4 minutes), flip'em and add a couple slices of ham, some cheddar and a slice of pineapple to each and let'em finish cooking.
    4. 4
      Take'em off the grill and add them, with lettuce and tomato, onto your buns with any mustard/ketchup/condiment you like and enjoy!
    5. 5
      Goofy sounding, but darn tasty!
    6. 6
      Try'em!
    7. 7
      If you really have some time on your hands, you could make a peanut sauce instead of using honey roasted peanuts, but I'm just lazy and the peanuts worked out very well.
