I had ground pork and fresh pineapple, so I made burgers. My hubby loves them in grilling season. We serve them with slaw and roasted potato wedges. —Hope Wasylenki, Gahanna, Ohio

Ingredients

  • 3 tablespoons Dijon mustard
  • 2 tablespoons honey
  • 1 tablespoon reduced-sodium teriyaki sauce
  • 1/2 pound ground pork
  • 2 green onions, finely chopped
  • 1/2 teaspoon grated fresh gingerroot
  • Dash ground allspice
  • Dash pepper
  • 2 fresh pineapple slices (about 1/4 inch thick)
  • 4 green pepper rings, thinly sliced
  • 4 Hawaiian sweet rolls, split
  • 2 Bibb or Boston lettuce leaves, halved

Directions

  1. In a small bowl, mix mustard, honey and teriyaki sauce.
  2. In a large bowl, combine pork, onions, ginger, allspice and pepper, mixing lightly but thoroughly. Shape into four 1/4-in.-thick patties.
  3. Grill burgers, covered, over medium heat until a thermometer reads 160°, 2-3 minutes on each side.
  4. Meanwhile, brush pineapple slices with 1 tablespoon mustard mixture. Grill until lightly browned, 2-3 minutes on each side. Grill pepper rings until crisp-tender, 1-2 minutes on each side. Cut pineapple and pepper slices in half. Grill rolls, cut side down, until toasted, 30-60 seconds.
  5. Serve burgers on rolls with lettuce, pineapple slices, pepper rings and remaining mustard mixture.
