Teriyaki Turkey Burger with Grilled Pineapple and Peppers

My husband and I had a grilled teriyaki chicken breast burger with pineapple at a restaurant. It was so yummy but I would have preferred it ground, just for easier eating. So I decided to make my own version of this burger at home. 


2 Mixing Bowls
Grill or Grill Pan
Cutting Board
Pineapple Corer(Optional)


1 lb Ground Turkey
1 Egg
1/2 C Bread Crumbs
1/2 C Teriyaki Sauce
1 Red Bell Pepper, Sliced in rings
1 Medium Onion, Sliced in rings
1 Medium Pineapple, Cored and Cut in rings
Pinch of Salt
Pinch of Black Pepper
Buns for burgers
1 Tbsp Oil, for grill


Put 1/4 C of teriyaki sauce in mixing bowl with onions, peppers, and pineapples. Let it marinate while getting the meat together. 

Put ground turkey, 1/4 C teriyaki sauce, egg, and bread crumbs in a mixing bowl.  Add the salt and pepper and mix until combined, be careful to not over mix. Make into 4 to 6 patties depending on the size you want. Rest for 5 to 10 minutes before cooking so the burgers hold together. 

Heat up grill or grill pan on medium high heat. Oil the grill pan and start by grilling the peppers, onions and pineapples. 

Then grill the burgers until completely brown through the center, flipping only once.  Then assemble the burger and serve with fries or potato wedges.
