Freezer-friendly Hawaiian burgers may sound crazy, but they are worth trying! Believe me, once the days get longer, and the sun is out, my family begs for me to make these.
These Freezer-Friendly Hawaiian Burgers Are Perfect For A Cookout
I had inspiration from Hawaiian pizza, which I know is controversial in itself. However, this mix of beef and pineapple is a winning flavor combination. Be prepared to surprise everyone around you, even those that may be put off by the ingredients.
To make this recipe, you will need ground beef, eggs, breadcrumbs, Cheddar cheese, onions, Worcestershire sauce, garlic, rosemary, Canadian bacon, pineapple, and hamburger buns.
You can replace some of these if you need to. Try using ground turkey, ground pork, ground chicken, Panko, American cheese, Swiss cheese, soy sauce, garlic powder, oregano, bacon, pineapple chunks, and potato buns.
Before you do anything else, preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. I suggest while this happens, you mix the ground meat, eggs, breadcrumbs, cheese, onions, sauce, garlic, and rosemary in a large bowl.
You will need to use your hands, so do not be afraid to get down and dirty! Divide the meat into your patties, making sure they all look even.
I also like to use a rimmed baking sheet for my patties. Bake them for about 30 minutes, but remember that the time may vary if you make thicker patties.
Separately, cook the bacon and pineapple for two minutes on a skillet, and then serve on top of the meat.
Freezing and Unfreezing the Burger
If you want to refrigerate your meal, let the burgers cool down, and keep them in an airtight container for up to four days. To eat them, reheat them in the oven for about 15 minutes.
To freeze this meal, make your patties and wrap each one in an individual packet. Place the Canadian bacon in its container and the pineapple in another one. Freeze everything for up to three months. When you are ready to eat, thaw everything and cook according to instructions.
