  • 1 tablespoon soy sauce

  • Island Hamburger Grilling Instructions

    1. Preheat the grill as follows:

    Gas:
    Direct heat, medium-high
    (425 - 450 degrees F)

    Charcoal:
    Direct heat, light ash, grate should be on lowest setting

    Wood:
    Direct heat, light ash, 3 - 4 inches deep, grate should be 2 inches above the fire

    2. Meanwhile in a large bowl, mix together everything except the last four ingredients. Don't overmix. With a light touch, form into 8 patties no more than 1/2 inch thick.

    Place 1 slice of smoked gouda cheese in the middle of 4 of the patties, place remaining 4 patties on top, press together, and seal edges well. This will keep the cheese from oozing out onto your grill and making a mess during the grilling process.

    3. Lightly cut criss-cross marks into one side of your burger patties. Refrigerate them until the grill is ready.

    4. Clean and lightly oil grill grate. Grill burgers, covered, 8 minutes total, flip once halfway through.

    Also at halfway point, add your pineapple rings and grill with your burgers for the last 4 minutes flipping the fruit after 2 minutes.

    5. Allow them to rest a few minutes before serving to let the juices settle.

    6. Top burgers with the grilled pineapple and some fresh spinach. Serve with onion rolls.
