Anyways, the only reason that stuff is remotely important is because we all know that with back-to-school, comes the need for quick and easy meal ideas. If you're looking for something a little different that won't keep you stuck in the kitchen, be sure to give this Pork & Zucchini Pasta Ragu a try! Enjoy!

Who's the grill master at your house? At our house, I am. Burgers are always popular in the summertime and I love changing it up and making different kinds. We have burgers about once every two weeks from about May until September sometime .... which means I need lots of variations! Of course, we eat them throughout the year, just not as frequently as in the summer. One of our favorites is this Pineapple Teriyaki Burger. I hope you enjoy it as well!
Preheat your grill (direct grilling over high heat).
Divide the ground beef into 8 equal portions. On waxed paper, flatten each portion into thin patty shapes. Season with salt and pepper.
Grill the pineapple slices a few minutes on each side until it has grill marks.
Meanwhile, place the burgers on the grill and grill for approximately 4-5 minutes. (Use your best judgement here - all grills are different!) Carefully flip and continue to cook the patties for another 3-4 minutes or until the meat is cooked through (cook to 160°). **Whatever you do - DO NOT USE A SPATULA TO PRESS THE BURGER - not with this burger or any burger!! Just my two cents! I'm sure the burger police will come after you if you don't heed my advice!** Using a basting brush, brush the burger with teriyaki sauce. Allow to cook for an additional minute or two - and baste with teriyaki sauce again. Top each burger with a slice of cheese and cook until cheese melts - about 1-2 minutes. Remove the burgers from the grill and allow them to rest for a few minutes before serving. (Now is a great time to toast your buns if you like them toasted!)
Top each bun with a bit of mayonnaise. Add a burger patty, pineapple slice and shredded lettuce. Serve!
