  • 1 pound 93%-lean ground turkey
  • 2 tablespoons reduced-sodium teriyaki sauce
  • 2 scallions, sliced
  • 1 large clove garlic, minced
  • 6 1/4-inch-thick fresh pineapple rings

Grilled pineapple tops flavorful turkey burgers to give this easy slider recipe Hawaiian flair.


  1. Preheat grill to medium-high.
  2. Combine turkey, teriyaki sauce, scallions and garlic in a medium bowl; gently knead together. Do not overmix. Form into 6 burgers, about 3 inches wide.
  3. Oil the grill rack. Grill the burgers until an instant-read thermometer inserted in the center registers 165°F, 2 to 3 minutes per side. Grill pineapple rings until lightly charred, about 2 minutes per side. Grill onions until lightly charred and starting to soften, about 2 minutes per side.
  4. Assemble the burgers on toasted buns with 1 teaspoon mayonnaise, 1 lettuce leaf, 1 pineapple ring and about 3 onion rings each.


  • Oiling a grill rack before you grill foods helps ensure that the food won’t stick. Oil a folded paper towel, hold it with tongs and rub it over the rack. (Do not use cooking spray on a hot grill.) When grilling delicate foods like tofu and fish, it is helpful to coat the food with cooking spray.
