Bacon Pineapple Burgers

Are you ready for some……did ya think I was going to say “Football”?   Nope! I am ready for some….Summer!  This weekend we had beautiful weather that made me get excited for warmer nights and barbecuing outside.

In anticipation of the longer days of summer, we decided to make these Bacon Pineapple Burgers that I pinned many moons ago on Pinterest:

Pretty simply, make your hamburger patties and criss-cross two pieces of bacon.  Place your patty in the middle of the bacon and put a pineapple slice on top.  Then cross the bacon over the burger and pineapple and pin with two toothpicks:

We put these on the BBQ grill and everything was cooking just fine so hubby came inside to check his email.  After a few minutes, he went back out to the grill and then came running back inside yelling “Debbie…get me something!”

Get him what?

A plate for the burgers?

A spatula?

Oh no.  How about some water because the grill was ON FIRE!

He grabbed a spray bottle with some water and ran back outside to douse the hamburgers and the grill with water.

Fortunately we got the fire out but unfortunately the burgers….well….they kinda looked like hockey pucks.  

I was somewhat disappointed but I have some growing boys in my family and a little charbroil wasn’t about to stop them from eating these so our whole family decided to just slather some BBQ sauce on these  and guess what?

They were still good!So if these burgers tasted good even after being burned, then I can say that This Pin Really Rocks!

  1. Oh man! This looks fabulous. I just pinned this an cannot wait to try it. I must say my cooking has improved exponentially since I’ve found the wonderful world of Pinterest! Thanks so much for sharing this creation. I can not wait to make them! Krista @ A Handful of Everything

  2. LOL! Debbie. This is definitely MAN food. They actually look pretty darn good–even charbroiled! I’ll have to mark these and make them for my MEN.

  3. My Bloglovin’ feed this morning is inundated with notices of comments to recent posts on this blog. This is new… I’ve never seen it with other blogs, and your blog didn’t used to do this. I would guess you changed something in the last day that makes Bloglovin’ think your comments are posts. Please fix this problem.

  4. Debbie, fantastic take on a burger – I wonder if the pineapple being sweet was part of why it burned – but there is nothing wrong with a bit of char! Please do drop me a line on [email protected] if you are ok with me linking it to my blog (Carole’s Chatter). Cheers

      Hi Carole! haha The pineapple was actually perfectly intact! I’m guessing it might have been the bacon drippings but it was so funny! We’d love to have you share! Thanks so much for stopping by! Deb – The Oldest Sister
