  • Hamburger buns
  • olive oil
  • salt
  • pepper
  • garlic powder
  • Glaze:
  • 1/2 cup teriyaki sauce I used Island Girl

  • 2 TBSP water
  • Burger Toppings:
  • fresh pineapple rings
  • sliced cheese I used pepper jack
  • thinly sliced red onion rings

  • mayonaise


  • Gently mix together ground turkey with salt, pepper, garlic powder (amounts will vary depending on how many burger patties you're making), with a small drizzle of olive oil. Do not over mix. Form into patties (3:1 or 4:1)
  • Grill burgers on outdoor grill or use a grill pan indoors
  • Add cheese at end of grilling
  • Toast Buns
  • To make glaze, mix together corn starch with water.
  • Heat teriyaki sauce
