Tropical Burger

READY IN: 15mins
YIELD: 4 Burgers


  • 1
    lb hamburger (try a mix of 1/2lb of burger and 1/2lb of ground sausage...mmmm!)
  • 1
  • 12
    cup breadcrumbs
  • 3
  • 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!
  • 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
    tomatoes, sliced
  • 1
    head lettuce
  • 4
    hamburger buns


  • 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.
  • Mush a bunch (10-15) of the peanuts into each patty and then put them on the grill, peanut side down.
  • 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.
  • Take'em off the grill and add them, with lettuce and tomato, onto your buns with any mustard/ketchup/condiment you like and enjoy!
  • Goofy sounding, but darn tasty!
  • Try'em!
  • 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.
