{July 29, 2008}   Maui Burgers

“This one’s for the girls…” Martina moment aside, here’s the burgers for my fabulous sisters.

"Savory Seasoned" (these, in the freezer)

The ones to get: "Savory Seasoned" (look like this, in the freezer)

Maui Burgers (inspired from the back of the burger box when I pulled them out of the freezer)
Jennie-O preseasoned turkey burgers
1 can of pineapple slices, in juice
2-3 Tbsp olive oil or butter (or combo)
1 onion, sliced in half rounds
1 or 2 bell peppers, sliced
sweet and sour sauce (mine leftover from Eli’s takeout)
hot dog or hamburger buns

Thaw the burgers before cooking (especially if you will be grilling them, so as no rare poultry). Then put them on a preheated grill or grill pan (regular pan works fine too), straightforward enough cook them flipping once. Then for the rest: Saute the onions and peppers in a bit of olive oil or butter over MED heat stirring until the onions start to look a bit translucent (maybe about 5 min). Stir in a little salt and pepper and let them hang out over MED LOW stirring occassionally until everything else is done. Drain the pineapple, reserve the juice, and put it on the grill or pan to get a bit of golden or grill marks on it. Set them aside, on a plate if they look juicy enough or in the drained juices if they look dry. You can toast your buns if you like, but I’m a bread burner, and then assemble the burger with sweet and sour on both halves of the bun: bottom bun, pineapple on bottom, burger, onions and pepper another little drizzle of sweet and sour, and top bun–or however, you want really–and eat.
