Instructions Jump to Ingredients ↑

  1. Heat grill (we use a gas grill) to Low/Medium.

  2. Mix ground turkey and jerk seasoning until combined, but don't mix too much or it will damage the meat, causing it to get tough.

  3. Form into (4) 3/4 inch thick patties. (You can cover and refrigerate for an hour to blend the flavors better or move onto the next step).

  4. Add burgers to bottom rack on grill.

  5. Add pineapples to bottom rack on grill. Brush with teriyaki sauce and flip so teriyaki sauce is face down.

  6. Cook for 6-7 minutes and flip burgers. DO NOT press down with the spatula or it will squeeze out juices.

  7. After you flip the burgers, brush the pineapple (the "naked" side) with teriyaki sauce and flip.

  8. Cook for another 6-7 minutes.

  9. After 5 minutes, add the cheddar cheese and bacon.

  10. Also, in the last 2 minutes of cooking, spray the inside of the buns with cooking spray and add them to the grill to toast them, taking care to watch and make sure that they don't burn.

  11. After the cooking time is up, remove the buns from the grill.

  12. Remove the burger from the grill and place on the buns. Top with grilled pineapples.

  13. Top with romaine and ranch dressing to serve.
