Hawaiian Burger (Hamburguesa Hawaiana)

Hawaian Burger

I absolutely love Hawaiian pizza, so I decided to make a hamburger with those delicious flavors. The ingredients combination is simple and fantastic: grilled pineapple, provolone cheese, ham and a delicious meat patty. This was so good that I couldn’t get enough of it, and actually can’t wait to make it again.

I want to share this Hawaiian hamburger idea with you for the Labor day weekend coming up soon.

Buen provecho!



(4 burgers)

  • 1 pound ground beef
  • 1 garlic clove, finely chopped
  • 2 scallions, finely chopped
  • ½ cup chopped white onion
  • ½ teaspoon ground cumin
  • Salt and black pepper
  • 4 hamburger buns
  • 4 ham slices
  • 4 pineapple slices
  • 4 provolone cheese slices


  1. In a large plastic bowl add the ground beef, garlic, scallions, onion, cumin, salt and pepper. Mix well and refrigerate for about 1 hour. Form 4 patties.
  2. Heat a grill or sauté pan and cook the hamburgers for 5 minutes on each side until done. Remove to a plate and cover with aluminum foil.
  3. Spray a large grill pan, (or even your outdoor grill) with cooking spray and heat over a medium flame. Grill the pineapple for 2 to 3 minutes on each side, until it is nicely brown and grill marks have appeared.
  4. Allow the hamburgers to rest for 5 minutes and serve immediately on buns with the 1 pineapple slice, 1 ham slice and 1 cheese slice.

Marvelous, Erica. Super flavors together and perfect for the coming weekend. How about that mango milkshake alongside??

There was a time when I could not get enough pineapple in dishes- recently I had something in Arizona with a southwester twist and it brought back that rush of memory, so I say ‘Yeah’ on this Erica!
