Calypso Beef Burgers
1 pound ground beef (ground chuck, ground sirloin or ground round)
¼ cup purchased mango chutney
2 teaspoons Caribbean jerk seasoning
4 fresh or canned pineapple slices, cut about ½-inch thick
4 Kaiser Rolls or hamburger buns, split
4 slices sharp Cheddar cheese
Combine ground beef, chutney and jerk seasoning in a large bowl, mixing lightly but thoroughly. Lightly shape into 4 patties, ½-inch each.
Place patties on lightly oiled grill grates and arrange pineapple slices nearby. Grill 8-9 minutes or until instant-read thermometer inserted horizontally into center registers 160°F, turning occasionally. Grill pineapple about 6-8 minutes or until heated throughout. About 2 minutes before burgers are done, place rolls, cut sides down, on grill. Grill until lightly toasted. During last minute of grilling, top each burger with cheese.
Place one burger and one pineapple slice on bottom on each bun. Serve immediately. Add lettuce and tomato if desired.
