The best burger for summer grilling, Teriyaki Pina Colada Burger

Cade has created a monster. A real life hamburger monster. Annnd that sounds gross. I’ve never really cared for burgers, but slowly and surely I’m realizing that it’s all about a well done burger. In fact I had one in Portland at Yakuza last fall that is still one of the best I’ve ever had. Except I had to shower when I got home as all the spices had gotten stuck in my hair and made my hair smell horrid. But it was worth it. Anyway we’ve been creating quite a few favorites like the Brazilian burger and the rest I’ll list with photos at the bottom of the post so you all can go pin crazy. But this teriyaki pina colada burger (which was inspired by the darling Jeana Hammer), well thanks to our 2 secrets for the best burger, is awesome!

Teriyaki Pina Colada Burger deliciousness! Making it!!

This is one of those burgers that you kind of have to trust me on. I know some maybe find it weird that we baste the burger, but trust me, it’s so yum. Good golly it’s good! I mean, if you can make a teriyaki steak (which happens to be a favorite of mine at Tepanyaki grills) then why not a burger? And then as they were cooking I thought, we just had Maui pork nachos with pina colada sauce which is one of our favorite football foods ever, so why not use the leftover sauce to make a pina colada mayo?! BOOYAH BABY!!

It turned out so fantabulous! We all agreed that the only thing that would have made it even better would have been to use this brown sugar grilled pineapple, but we were trying to not ingest 5 million calories in one sitting so we decided on plain pineapple. And as we were eating those crazy awesome burgers I kept thinking that we needed a roundup of the Must Make Burgers of the Season and guess who emailed? The genius, Vijay from Nosh On It. He was putting together an entire burger week that would eventually lead to a killer post with all of the links. Which don’t worry, I’ll post to our facebook page and pin to pinterest later. In the meantime, here’s today’s bloggers with their recipes and make sure you keep watching Nosh On It for the rest and a fun giveaway!!

Teriyaki Pina Colada Burger

Juicy teriyaki pina colada burgers


  • 4 Brioche Buns
  • 2 pounds the perfect burger mix
  • 1/4 cup teriyaki sauce
  • salt and pepper
  • 2 tablespoons of butter, melted plus more for buns
  • 4 slices of pineapple, core intact * see note*
  • 1/3 cup teriyaki sauce
  • 1/3 cup Pina Colada Sauce
  • 1/3 cup mayonnaise
  • 4 slices colby jack cheese
  • 4-8 slices of cooked bacon


  1. In a small bowl, combine the 1/3 cup pina colada sauce and mayo.
  2. Butter each side of the buns, set aside, and heat the grill to high heat.
  3. Mix the meat gently with the 1/4 cup teriyaki sauce. Form into 4 burgers and brush with a little melted butter then sprinkle each side with salt and pepper. Place on the grill and grill 4-7 minutes . Using a spoon drizzle the teriyaki over the burgers without.Flip the burger and using a brush or a new spoon, spread teriyaki over the burger. Allow to cook for another 4-7 minutes or until done. (A well done burger will not be as flavorful so we usually do medium) Place cheese over each burger right before it is done and close the lid to melt the cheese.
  4. Meanwhile, grill the pineapple until marks appear, about 2 minutes, flip and grill again. Remove to a plate and cut out the core.
  5. Grill each bun, inside down until grill marks appear.
  6. Spread the pina colada mayo on each side of the bun. Place the burger, pineapple and bacon on the bottom and top with the lid. Enjoy!


Leaving the core in while cooking will help the pineapple to not fall apart and be easier to turn. Once it's done use a paring knife or small donut hole cutter to remove the core.
