I must admit I am a weird person, I like hot coffee in the summer and ice cream in the winter, so of course I like a summertime staple in the cold months as well. This recipe may seem odd, but give it a try, I promise it will amaze your taste buds.
For Burger Patties:
1 lb. Ground Beef (I use venison, also great with ground chicken)
1/4 C Crushed Pineapple, drained
1/4 of a small Onion, diced small or minced
2 Cloves Garlic, minced
1/4 C Swiss Cheese, shredded (can use any cheese you wish)
1 T Spicy Mustard
1/4 C+2 T Bread Crumbs (I used Panko, can use GF if wanting a GF version)
For Finished Burger:
Slice of Cheese for each burger (I prefer sharp cheddar or pepper jack)
2 Slices Cooked Bacon for each Burger (can use more)
Rolls (I prefer ciabatta bread)
Sriracha Mayo https://junecleaver21stcenturystyle.wordpress.com/2016/01/06/sriracha-mayonnaise/ (optional)
-Combine all burger ingredients in bowl. Ensure all ingredients are mixed together well. I like to allow mine to sit overnight to allow all the flavors to blend, but I suggest at least 1 hour.
-Cook Burger as you desire to doneness you like. Top with 2 slices of bacon, place cheese over bacon and allow to melt.
-Place 1/2-1T Sriracha Mayo on top bun. Top burger with your favorite condiments and veggies (I love red onion on mine). Enjoy!
