Pineapple Bacon Burgers

  • Author: Our Best Bites
  • Prep Time: 15 minutes
  • Cook Time: 10 minutes
  • Total Time: 25 minutes
  • Yield: 4 burgers


Tender burgers with sweet grilled pineapple, bacon, and bbq sauce.


1 pound lean ground beef
1 teaspoon kosher salt
2 tablespoons bbq sauce

Additional ingredients
4 brioche hamburger buns
48 slices bacon, cooked
4 slices fresh pineapple, about 1/31/2 inch thick
additional bbq sauce


  1. Preheat grill to medium.
  2. Combine ground beef, salt and 2 tablespoons of your favorite bbq sauce.
  3. Shape into 4 patties, and flatten to roughly the same size of your buns (they will shrink some during cooking).  Place burgers on the grill and cook for a few minutes on each side, until the internal temperature registers 160 degrees.
  4.  When you flip the burgers, add the pineapple slices to the grill, making sure you get a chance to flip them once as well.  They should be tender and have some char marks on them. 1-2 minutes on each side should be sufficient.
  5. If desired, toast your buns. Spread mayo on each side, or what I did in my photos is a 50/50 mix of mayo and bbq sauce.
  6. Place burgers in buns, top with the slice of pineapple, top with 1-2 slices bacon, and an extra drizzle of barbecue sauce.
