Teriyaki Burgers

Summer is the time for burgers! But you can only have a burger so many times before it starts getting old, so my wonderful husband came up with this recipe a few years ago and we all approved!

Please excuse my bare burger. I was so tired because we had attended an all day fair and went swimming afterwards that I did not feel like chopping up lettuce and tomatoes!:) Oh and that is not grease, it is overflowing delicious teriyaki sauce.

Teriyaki Burger
Serves 8

2 lbs ground chuck
1 tsp. onion powder
1 tsp. garlic powder
1 tsp pepper
1 tsp. worcestershire sauce
1 can pineapple slices
1/4 c. soy sauce
1/4 c. brown sugar
1/2 c. water
teriyaki sauce
your choice of cheese (we used provolone)

Mix all ingredients for sauce in a small saucepan until well combined. Heat to a boil then simmer for 2 min. Set aside.
Mix all burger ingredients in a medium bowl. Shape into patties making them thinner in the middle. 
Grill burgers on each side for 5- 7 minutes depending on how thick you made yours. Baste burgers on both sides while grilling. 
Serve on buttery, toasted buns and top with a slice of pineapple, more teriyaki sauce and any other desired toppings. Enjoy!
