Pineapple Barbecue Burgers

When it comes to burgers in our house, we all love them. OK. So the Goose only loves one or two bites. But she still eats them and that’s something. And she did try and enjoy these Pineapple Barbecue Burgers if only a few bites.

When it comes to cooking burgers, I’m pretty much the only one who makes them. The Goose has gone through periods of helping mix, but lately she loses interest pretty quickly in favor of twirling like a princess or just wreaking general havoc.

With this last set, she was too busy watching Moana to really care. I suppose happily screaming “every step I take” over and over is more appealing than touching raw meat.

For Jenna, suffering through another round of Moana may also be more appealing than mixing the burgers. I’m not sure. But regardless, she is happy to let me mix and make burgers so she doesn’t have to massage seasonings and burger altogether.¬†(Note frome Jenna: Ummmm… I am totally happy to just not cook at the end of the day when I am pooped. Watching the same Disney movie for the 5000 time is totally better some nights than actually getting dinner on the table. And I am just so thrilled we are out of the Zootopia phase.)

And that’s is fine with me. I don’t mind the process of mixing them by hand. I’ve tried a spoon with little luck. Ingredients often spill and the burgers aren’t well incorporated. But mixing by hand spreads the spices out evenly. The end result is always worth it. Everyone happily eats them.

These Pineapple¬†Barbecue Burgers take our love of burgers and combines them with our general affinity towards Asian cuisine. If you have read any of Jenna’s previous posts, you’ll know the Goose was made from Thai food. And she still eats it regularly.¬†(Jenna’s note again. Except when my husband goes on man dates to one of my favorite places and doesn’t bring me any Panang curry home. Grumble, grumble, grumble.)

Naturally, as foodies tend to do, we did a fusion of Asian inspired barbecue sauce and a southwest style burger. The combination makes an excellent melding of sweet and spicy flavors. These burgers are well worth the sticky hands that come from mixing the ingredients together. Topping them with a slice of juicy, sweet grilled pineapple and a crunchy cheddar cheese crisp. Well, that’s the icing on the cake. Or in this case, the pineapple on the burger.
