Hawaiian Mini Burgers

All of the mini burger commercials on TV really got me craving mini burgers. Then one night in my sleep I came up with this sweet gem. This is often how my foods come about. What can I say? I think about food 24/7. The main problem with mini burgers is finding a suitable bun. The King's Hawaiian, Hawaiian Sweet Rolls was just the thing I needed to make the mouth-watering burgers.

Hawaiian Mini Burgers
Serves 4
You will need:

  • 1/2 to 3/4 pound ground beef
  • 1 package Hawaiian Sweet Rolls
  • 1 can of pineapple slices
  • onion flakes
  • garlic powder
  • Worcestershire sauce
  • pepper
  • barbecue sauce (sweet)
  • red pepper flakes (optional)

Place a grill pan or a skillet on the stove and heat to medium. Meanwhile, section out the ground beef into 10 to 12 equal sections. Form sections into balls and press into patties. Season with garlic powder, pepper, onion flakes, Worcestershire sauce and red pepper flakes (optional, but gives it a sweet and spicy flavor). Place the patties into the preheated skillet. Cook for two minutes and flip. Add the pineapple slices. Continue cooking patties until desired doneness. Remove from pan and place on bun. Spoon bbq sauce on top of the burgers. Continue cooking pineapple until it starts to turn light brown. Cut pineapple slices into quarters. Place on burgers. Close buns. Serve. Leftovers can be saved off of the buns.
