Be A Healthy Chef: Maui Burgers!

I’m loving this warm summer-esque weather we’ve been having and there is nothing I love more than cooking on the grill. And even more than cooking on the grill, I love that there is no clean up afterwards!

Try these Maui burgers for a healthy and sweet spin on the traditional burger.

To prepare:

1. Form 1/4 lb lean ground turkey into patties

2. Mix in 1/8 cup teriyaki sauce

3. Grill to desired temperature

4. Grill sliced pineapple rings

5. Place burger and pineapple on a whole wheat bun

6. Top with additional teriyaki sauce

7. Enjoy!


 I paired mine with baked sweet potato “chips” for dinner

Been there, cooked that tips:

  • Try substituting veggie burgers for turkey for a vegetarian swap out
  • This recipe is a little high in sodium so make sure to pair it with a low sodium side
  • Top with additional veggies (red onion, jalapenos, spinach, etc) for  a little extra kick
