- 1 lb. ground beef
- 1/4 cup mango chutney
- 2 tsp. Caribbean jerk seasoning
- 4 fresh or canned pineapple slices, cut 1/2-inch thick
- 4 Kaiser rolls or hamburger buns, split
- 4 slices sharp Cheddar cheese
Combine ground beef, chutney and jerk seasoning in large bowl, mixing lightly but thoroughly. Lightly shape into four 1/2-inch thick patties.
Place patties in center of grid over medium, ash-covered coals; arrange pineapple slices around patties. Grill patties, uncovered, 11 to 13 minutes (over medium heat on preheated gas grill, covered, 7 to 8 minutes) until instant-read thermometer inserted horizontally into center registers 160 degrees, turning occasionally. Grill pineapple, uncovered, 8 minutes or until heated through. (Gas grilling times remain the same.) About 2 minutes before burgers are done, place rolls, cut sides down, on grid. Grill until lightly toasted. During last minute of grilling, top each burger with cheese.
Place 1 burger and pineapple slice on bottom of each bun. Close sandwiches.
If fruit chunks in chutney are large, use kitchen shears to snip them into smaller pieces.
