Jerk seasoning and mango chutney put a Caribbean twist on your average burger.

Ingredients

  • 1 lb 95% lean ground beef
  • 1/4 cup mango chutney
  • 2 tsp 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

Directions

  • Combine ground beef, chutney and jerk seasoning in large bowl, mixing lightly but thoroughly. Lightly shape into four 1/2-inch thick patties.
  • Place patties in center of grid over medium, ash-covered coals; arrange pineapple slices around patties. Grill patties, uncovered, 11 to 13 minutes (over medium heat on preheated gas grill, covered, 7 to 8 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.
