Cade has created a monster. A real life hamburger monster. Annnd that sounds gross. I’ve never really cared for burgers, but slowly and surely I’m realizing that it’s all about a well done burger. In fact I had one in Portland at Yakuza last fall that is still one of the best I’ve ever had. Except I had to shower when I got home as all the spices had gotten stuck in my hair and made my hair smell horrid. But it was worth it. Anyway we’ve been creating quite a few favorites like the Brazilian burger and the rest I’ll list with photos at the bottom of the post so you all can go pin crazy. But this teriyaki pina colada burger (which was inspired by the darling Jeana Hammer), well thanks to our 2 secrets for the best burger, is awesome!


What Hamburger Meat is Best?

Cut from the shoulder, ground chuck ranges from 15 to 20 percent fat and has a “rich” flavor and “tender,” “moist” texture.

The best choice for burgers.

Ground sirloin is a bit “dry” in burgers, though it does have “good beef flavor.”

This is one of those burgers that you kind of have to trust me on. I know some maybe find it weird that we baste the burger, but trust me, it’s so yum. Good golly it’s good! I mean, if you can make a teriyaki steak (which happens to be a favorite of mine at Tepanyaki grills) then why not a burger? And then as they were cooking I thought, we just had Maui pork nachos with pina colada sauce which is one of our favorite football foods ever, so why not use the leftover sauce to make a pina colada mayo?! BOOYAH BABY!!


When is Hamburger Meat Done?

The interior of a raw hamburger usually does contain bacteria, and is safest if cooked well done.

Because E. coli is killed at 155 degrees Fahrenheit, the USDA sets the minimum safe temperature for ground beef at 160 degrees Fahrenheit.



The pina colada sauce originally comes from our ham dipping sauce, and you absolutely must try it and the world’s best honey mustard sauce come holiday season.

It turned out so fantabulous! We all agreed that the only thing that would have made it even better would have been to use this brown sugar grilled pineapple, but we were trying to not ingest 5 million calories in one sitting so we decided on plain pineapple.


Bless this Mess also has a yummy Fajita Burger so check it out!

  • 4 Brioche Buns
  • 2 pounds the [perfect burger mix]
  • 2/3  cup teriyaki sauce divided
  • salt and pepper
  • 2 tablespoons of butter melted plus more for buns
  • 4 slices of pineapple core intact (see note)
  • 1/3 cup[ Pina Colada Sauce]
  • 1/3 cup mayonnaise
  • 4 slices colby jack cheese
  • 4-8 slices of cooked bacon


  • In a small bowl, combine the 1/3 cup pina colada sauce and mayo.
  • Butter each side of the buns, set aside, and heat the grill to high heat.
  • Mix the meat gently with the 1/4 cup teriyaki sauce.
  • Form into 4 burgers and brush with a little melted butter then sprinkle each side with salt and pepper.
  • Place on the grill and grill 4-7 minutes .
  • Using a spoon drizzle the teriyaki over the burgers.
  • Flip the burger and using a brush or a new spoon, spread teriyaki over the burger, plus any more at the end to taste.
  • Allow to cook for another 4-7 minutes or until done. (A well done burger will not be as flavorful so we usually do medium)
  • Place cheese over each burger right before it is done and close the lid to melt the cheese.
  • Meanwhile, grill the pineapple until marks appear, about 2 minutes, flip and grill again.
  • Remove to a plate and cut out the core.
  • Grill each bun, inside down until grill marks appear.
  • Spread the pina colada mayo on each side of the bun.
  • Place the burger, pineapple and bacon on the bottom and top with the lid.
  • Enjoy!



Leaving the core in while cooking will help the pineapple to not fall apart and be easier to turn. Once it's done use a paring knife or small donut hole cutter to remove the core.

  12. Your burgers sound delicious. I want to make the teriyaki piña colata one first. I have never heard of pia colata sauce. Do you buy it made, or do you make it.
    If you make it, what is the recipe? Thanks,

  13. Next time you are at Harmons you need to try Lolitas Brioche Bun, they are made in Utah. After you try them you will wounder why you used those so called brioche bun in this recipe.

  14. These look amazing! When you say pins colada sauce are you referring to cream of coconut used in making the drink? The combo of sweet, savory, salty, etc. sounds like perfection!
