Hawaiian Burgers and Grilled Potatoes for Recipe Friday

Well, I forgot to take pictures, but we had the yummiest burgers on the Traeger last night. I actually started with pre-made angus burgers from Costco, but you could patty up burgers from fresh hamburger. I’ve actually done that before, and they were good then, too. Last night we served these with baked beans and Grilled Potatoes.

Hawaiian Burgers


Pre-made burgers
1 lb hamburger mixed with ¼ cup pineapple salsa and pattied
Canned pineapple rings
Provolone cheese slices (optional)
Sesame buns
Barbeque sauce
Miracle Whip or mayonnaise


Grill burgers. When burgers are about half done, place pineapple rings on grill. Assemble burgers with 2 slices of pineapple per burger.

Grilled Potatoes


2 – 4 Large Russet potatoes
Pam cooking spray
Salt and pepper


Peel potatoes and cut into small cubes. Spray a large piece of heavy-duty aluminum foil with cooking spray. Place the potatoes on the foil and sprinkle with salt and pepper. Close the packet up. Place on the grill and cook for 35 to 45 minutes. (Note: I started these quite a bit before the burgers.)

    I think we have one last shot at doing anything like this before the cloud of cold descends. Hope I can get time away to try it soon.
    Pineapples are on my list of favourite fruits and beef and pineapple together are a whole new world of flavour bursts! 🙂
    I suspect this will be a hit in our home as well.

    • Ann, The beef and pineapple combination is amazingly delicious! I hope you do get a bit more warm weather so you can try this before the cold hits. I must say I’m glad I don’t live as far north as you do. It’s one thing to be contemplating fall already, but to think about it getting cold any time soon would be tough for me. 🙂 Peace, Linda

  3. Oh . . .I love the sound of this! I’ve been adding a little something extra into the burgers to try to make them tastier . . .more exciting. This sounds like a wonderful alternative! Thank you so much. I truly, truly appreciate the help you give me in the kitchen!
    God bless you and your family and your mealtimes together!
    p.s. pork tenderloin roasts have become one of our meals now . . .thanks to you!

    • Deb, I appreciate the encouragement. I’m starting to feel like I’m running out of recipes, but then something comes to me. I just wish I’d remembered to take pictures. My son put ketchup on his first one, then said that just seemed wrong on a Hawaiian burger, at which point I told him that is why the barbeque sauce was out. He used the bbq on his second one. 🙂 Glad you are enjoying the tenderloin. Peace, Linda
