Grilled Caprese Toast with Burrata Cheese + Grilled Avocados.
And the tropical eats continue with these Aloha Burgers with Island Jerk Pineapple!
Seriously, I have a problem. I have so many tropical recipe ideas floating around in my head.
It’s crazy. I am sorry if all this fruity tropical food is not your thing. For your sake, I will throw in some regular foods at some point here, but I can’t seem to stop. Tropical foods just make me happy.
For this reason, I am just going to put this out here right now. You know I always want to be upfront with you guys. I have a new disclaimer for the Half Baked Harvest site: From here until mid-August I cannot be held accountable for the large (possibly ridiculous) amount of fruit recipes posted on this site. Just warning ya.
Speaking of fruit and produce, I walked into the grocery store yesterday, and you guys – there was fresh and beautiful produce everywhere! Berries galore (and on sale too!) I bought raspberries for a dollar a pack! Obviously, I bought ten (duh). I bought fresh corn, peaches and nectarines (super early, I know, but they looked good), watermelon, cherries, and all kinds of greens. I practically bought the whole produce section.
So excited for all the color to be back in the stores. Very very exciting if you ask me!
Ok, ok, ok, but these burgers? Well, these are a summer cookout burger for sure. With Memorial Day coming, I figured it was time to start talking about all things cookout.
And yes, I know it was twenty degrees here all day yesterday. AND that it has snowed for the last three days. BUT… I also know that most of the world is enjoying spring, and for some even – summer temps (or at least I pray that you are – I would not wish this cold and snow upon anyone)! So cookout time it is!
Just a fun little side note, I totally grilled these in the middle of a snowstorm. It was cold and depressing 🙁
These burgers are all about the pineapple.
Yes, the pineapple. One, I am head over heels for pineapple right now, so I may be a bit biased. Probably not though, the stuff is so good. Let’s put it this way, it gets soaked in coconut rum, brown sugar, and jerk spices. Told you, so good.
Then there’s island teriyaki sauce, cheese, and bacon. Bacon because, well, islanders love their pork.
Bonus point if you make a fun drink and serve them out of real coconuts.
Best drink ever (no matter what’s inside).
Lastly, if you make these Aloha Burgers with Island Jerk Pineapple, be sure to leave a comment and/or give this recipe a rating! Above all, I love to hear from you guys and always do my best to respond to each and every comment. And of course, if you do make this recipe, don’t forget to tag me on Instagram! Looking through the photos of recipes you all have made is my favorite!

See you on the beach…. (I WISH!)
My husband and I absolutely love these burgers! We tried them according to the exact recipe the first time we made them but decided to leave the bacon off the other times. We’ve come to the decision that bacon is too delicious to be covered by any other flavors. We’re making this for dinner tonight again, and we can’t wait. Yum!
SO happy you both love them!!
This looks amazing! Do you think it would be ok without the bacon?
Thank you and yes, I think it will be great! Hope you love them!
You have the most incredible flavor combinations in your recipes! I’m always excited when I see a new blog post in my inbox:)

Keep the tropical eats coming! Love the grilled pineapple on these burgers!
Ya! Happy you like the tropical eats!
Ummmmm.. These look frickin delicious! So so so good. We’re experiencing torrential rain here–picture floods and lots of umbrellas. So definitely not the happiest of weather either.
I’m hoping the weather will clear up by this weekend so I can make these! So so good looking. Need these burgers!
Oh no!! Rain is the worst, so sorry!!
These burgers are just making my mouth water! They look amazing. 🙂
Ah great minds think alike! I totally just posted a similar grilled chicken sandwich today, with the pineapple and bacon and everything! We call them Gorgeous Georges at my house 🙂 These look so amazing! I’ll definitely have try a teriyaki burger version!
No way! checking that out now!!
Someone send me to the islands, RIGHT NOW!!!
🙂 Thanks Megan!
I was drooling just when you were talking about the grilled pineapples, and then you went and put it on a burger! And there are drinks in actual coconuts with little umbrellas and I just want to go to the beach. 🙂
The beach! 🙂
Oh my lawdy mercy, that looks amazing!
