Hawaiian Burgers with Avocado Spread

This is a older recipe of mine I made a while back. But, I love it and would love to make it again. The recipe does require a bit of prepping but turns out delicious. Great to make during the summer time. This recipe will make 4 hamburgers



  • 1 pound of ground beef
  • 4 hamburger buns or Hawaiian bread buns
  • 3 tbsp of teriyaki sauce
  • one small red onion- 1/4 cup chopped and the remainder sliced
  • 1/2 cup of bread crumbs
  • add salt to taste
  • 1 tbsp of garlic powder
  • 1 tbsp of soy sauce
  • one fresh pineapple- 1/4 cup chopped and four slices for each burger
  • 1 small avocado 
  • 1/8 cup of sour cream
  • 1/8 cup of mayonnaise 
  • slices of lettuce
  • gruyere cheese


First, open up ground beef and put in a bowl. Mix in 1/2 cup of bread crumbs, 1 tsp of salt, 1 tbsp of garlic powder, 1/4 cup of chopped red onion, 1/4 cup of pineapple, 3 tbsps of teriyaki sauce, and 1 tbsp of soy sauce. Mix all the ingredients together. Add more bread crumbs if the mixture is really moist. Allow to marinate in the refrigerator for a hour. 

Next, make a avocado spread for the hamburgers by smashing up a small avocado with a 1/8 cup of sour cream and 1/8 cup of mayonnaise . Add salt to taste.  Put in the fridge until ready to serve the hamburgers.  

Heat up a grill pan or outside grill. Form ground beef mixture into four large patties. Grill patties as long as you prefer depending on well you want the meat cooked.  Add slices of gruyere cheese on the top of the patties when nearly cooked to melt the cheese.  Grill the slices of pineapple. In another pan, saute the slices of red onion with a little olive oil. Heat up or toast hamburger buns for a few minutes.

Serve burgers by putting avocado spread on each slice of bread. Place patties on the bread topped with grilled pineapple, red onion, and a piece of lettuce. Serve with your favorite side.  I enjoyed mine with mango pineapple salad and oven fries. Bon Appetit!
