It's like a luau in your mouth with this Hawaiian burger recipe from yours truly and sponsored by Omaha Steaks.
2 tsp. Kosher salt
Ground black pepper
8 slices ham
4 slices pineapple approximately ½ inch thick, skin and core removed
1/3 cup mayonnaise
4 Hawaiian sweet hamburger buns, lightly toasted
Prepare grill for high heat cooking. Season both sides of the burger patties liberally with salt and pepper. Make a small indentation in the center of each burger with your thumb (this will ensure that the burger maintains an even thickness and doesn’t plump up in the center while cooking). Place the burger patties on the grill and cook for approximately 4 minutes per side for medium rare (130-135 degrees internal temperature). As the burgers cook, grill the pineapple slices for 2 minutes per side until caramelized and softened. Remove the burgers and pineapple from the grill.
To assemble the burgers, spread mayonnaise on the top and bottom buns. Place burger patties on the bottom buns, top each patty with 2 slices ham, 1 slice of pineapple and the top bun.
