Quick and easy dinners are a must have for our family during the summer. Not only is it busy during the summer months with all the kids home, but I try (for the sake of my sanity) to keep the kids outside as much as possible. Because of this, grill recipes are a perfect solution. Quick, easy, and I can keep an eye on the kids as they play in the backyard. These Hawaiian Brat Burgers were a hit with the entire family!
Earlier this month, I was sent a set of bamboo cutting boards to try out – they have been perfect for our grill! This set of four bamboo boards – red meat, seafood, poultry, and fruits/veggies – comes with a convenient rack that makes it perfect for prepping meals on the grill’s side table.
Not having to run in and out of the house while cooking on the grill is a huge time and sanity saver!
From start to finish this recipe took about 15 minutes to make. The hardest part was making sure that the pineapple did not dry out while grilling.
To help prevent that, I simply kept a glass of water near the grill and added some water to each slice as I flipped them.

Grilled Hawaiian Brat Burgers
- A Fresh Pineapple
- 8 Hamburger Buns
- 3/4 pound ground pork
- 1 small onion grated
- 2 cloves garlic grated
- 1/4 teaspoon nutmeg
- 1/4 teaspoon coriander
- 1/4 teaspoon paprika
- Shredded Cheese as desired
In a large mixing bowl, mix together the meat, shredded cheese, onion, garlic, and spices until combined. Separate into 8 patties.
Add the patties to the grill. Flip every 3-4 minutes until fully cooked.
Slice up the fresh pineapple.
Add the slices to the grill. Flip frequently.
Once both items are done, add desired condiments to a hamburger bun with pineapple and brat burger. We prefer ours with Mayo.
Serve and Enjoy!
Keep a glass of water on hand to sprinkle on top of pineapple while grilling to help keep it moist.
