caribbean cheeseburgers with grilled pineapple

Imagine a taste of the Caribbean as you bite into these burgers with jerk spices, mango and pineapple. You're gonna love it.


  • 1 pound Ground Beef (93% lean or leaner)

  • 1/4 cup mango chutney

  • 2 teaspoons Caribbean jerk seasoning

  • 4 fresh or canned pineapple slices, cut 1/2 inch thick

  • 4 Kaiser rolls or hamburger buns, split

  • 4 slices sharp Cheddar cheese


  1. Combine Ground Beef, chutney and jerk seasoning in large bowl, mixing lightly but thoroughly. Lightly shape into four 1/2-inch thick patties.Cook's Tip:If using 93% lean Ground Beef, add 1/4 cup soft bread crumbs and 1 egg white to ingredients in step 1. If fruit chunks in chutney are large, use kitchen shears to snip them into smaller pieces.
  2. Place patties in center of grid over medium, ash-covered coals; arrange pineapple slices around patties. Grill, uncovered, 8 to 10 minutes (over medium heat on preheated gas grill, 7 to 9 minutes) until instant-read thermometer inserted horizontally into center registers 160°F, turning occasionally. Grill pineapple, uncovered, 8 minutes or until heated through. (Gas grilling times remain the same.) About 2 minutes before burgers are done, place rolls, cut sides down, on grid. Grill until lightly toasted. During last minute of grilling, top each burger with cheese.Cook's Tip: Cooking times are for fresh or thoroughly thawed Ground Beef. Ground beef should be cooked to an internal temperature of 160°F. Color is not a reliable indicator of ground beef doneness.
  3. Place 1 pineapple slice and burger patty on bottom of each bun. Close sandwiches.
