I have for you today on this lovely Aloha Friday a burger of epic proportions. My Hawaiian Pineapple Burger with Sweet Maui Onions and Homemade Taro Chips. That goes amazingly well with Maui Brewing Co. beer.
When my friend Kita of the blog Girl Carnivore asked me to join in her burger month group I was excited to join in since it has been a while since I posted a burger recipe on my blog. I found out about the group before my recent trip to Hawaii and I told her my burger would be ” some sort of epic Hawaiian burger”.
A huge thanks to all the sponsors of this awesome burger month – and check out at the end of the post an amazing giveaway you can enter to win awesome prizes from all of these sponsors. Yay free stuff!!
I know its a bit cliche to have something pineapple in a recipe and call it Hawaiian. When that actually bugs me to no end. Just adding in pineapple doesn’t make it Hawaiian. Especially when its nachos, or tater tot casserole, or a grilled cheese sandwich or anything really that isn’t remotely close to Hawaiian cuisine. So for me to even call this Hawaiian – it should be more Hawaiian inspired – BUT – I have so many ingredients in it that came from Hawaii that I am sticking to the name.
