Recipe from: **Kelly*
There is nothing we like better than a well rounded burger with sensational toppings. This burger combines fabulous flavors and really hits the spot! The prep time/cook time is flexible because I included some of the refrigeration time and when you combine tasks, it doesn't take near so long.
For the grilled onions:
1 red onion, sliced ½-inch thick
1 teaspoon crushed coriander seed
1 teaspoon chopped fresh thyme
½ cup white wine
2 tablespoons olive oil
1 teaspoon lemon juice
Place onion slices in a shallow baking dish. In a small saucepan, combine coriander seeds, thyme, wine, oil, and lemon juice; bring to a boil over medium heat. Let cool slightly, then pour mixture over onions. Cover and refrigerate for 2 hours.
For the grilled pineapple:
4 slices pineapple rings
1 teaspoon pink peppercorns, freshly crushed
¼ teaspoon salt
olive oil flavored cooking spray
Place pineapple slices on paper towels to drain. Remove and sprinkle with pink peppercorns and salt. Spray lightly with oil. Set aside.
For the burgers:
4 slices white bread, cubed with crusts removed
3 tablespoons teriyaki sauce
1 pound ground chicken
3 tablespoons finely diced onions
1 garlic clove, minced
1 teaspoon fresh parsley, chopped
1 teaspoon sesame oil
2 teaspoons prepared mustard
1 egg, slightly beaten
½ teaspoon salt
½ teaspoon fresh ground pepper
¼ teaspoon nutmeg
3 to 4 drops hot sauce
In a large bowl, combine cubed bread with teriyaki sauce and let rest for 5 minutes. Fold in ground meat. In a small pan, sauté onions, garlic, and parsley in sesame oil for 1 minute. Add to ground meat mixture and combine. Add mustard, egg, salt, pepper, nutmeg, and hot sauce. Mix well. Mold into 4 patties and refrigerate, covered, for 1 hour.
Spray burgers lightly with oil and place in center of cooking grate. Grill 6 to 8 minutes until well done and internal temperature registers 180°F turning once halfway through grilling time. Place onions on grill for 4 to 6 minutes, turning once halfway through grilling time, and grill pineapple for 1 to 2 minutes, turning once halfway through grilling time. Place burgers on grilled buns; top with pineapple and onion.
