Aloha BBQ Sliders | burger recipe


Fire up the grill this summer for this mini beef burger recipe flavored with barbecue sauce and served on sweet rolls with cheese, pineapple and bacon.

Summer officially arrives later this week, and that means grilling season is upon us!  My family has rarely met a burger they did’t like, but some seem to really go over better than others.

Enter……… Aloha BBQ Sliders!  Since we’ve been busy packing, moving and unpacking, I’ve been all about easy dinners, so when I saw these gourmet sliders on the website I knew I found something I could whip up in no time, with minimal mess in the kitchen and I was pretty sure my family would love.

These burgers just scream summer, but I know we would eat them all year long.  I think it’s the barbeque sauce with a touch of pineapple juice inside the burger and again on the bun.  I love a burger swimming in sauce.  Or maybe it’s the grilled pineapple and slice of bacon on top, you can’t go wrong anytime you slap a piece of bacon on top.  Am I right?

If you’ve never toasted your burger buns, you are in for an extra special treat!  You will never eat a burger on a plain bun again, I love the crispy crunch the toasted bun adds to a burger.

To make these Alhoa Sliders, simply spray your cold grill with PAM® Grilling Spray (I was out, so I just used original) so your burgers don’t stick to the grill.  Add pineapple juice to some barbeque sauce (be sure to use a sweet BBQ sauce, one with Brown Sugar in the name).  Then mix ground beef with 1/3 cup of the pineapple barbeque sauce and a little Montreal Steak Seasoning (this stuff is our secret to great steaks too!) and make 12 little patties. – You can always make these Aloha Burgers full size, but be sure to use Hawaiian Hamburger Buns if you do. 

Grill your sliders, buns and pineapple then assemble burgers.  Top each toasted bun with a little pineapple barbeque sauce, lettuce, burger, cheese, bacon and pineapple and your set!

Get in my BELLY!  Trust me, you want this recipe in your burger arsenal!

WARNING:  One bite and these Aloha Sliders will have you booking the next flight to Hawaii.
