Tropical Burger

Tropical Burger created by Marty Fredericks

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!

Ready In:
15mins
Yields:
Units:

ingredients

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

directions

  • 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.

    Wow, what a fantastic burger! Peanut sauce and Pineapple certainly sounds weird, but it works!

    Quite a novel taste. I just had lean ground beef. I also made a peanut sauce (first recipe that appeared on a google search). I didn't have the recommended cheeses either, just cheddar and mozzarella. I also used leftover Christmas ham cooked with sugar and pineapple tidbits. The way I would describe the taste is that of a very moist burger patty with a smothering of peanut butter and tiny bursts of pineapple flavor. Not bad especially because I appreciate the texture. If I want a moist burger, this could be my inspiration.
