Give your family's burgers a super twist on flavor. These work for the broiler or on the grill. Serve on toasted whole wheat buns.
1 (8-ounce) can crushed pineapple
3/4 pound fully cooked boneless smoked ham
3/4 pound ground pork
1/2 cup finely chopped green pepper
2 tablespoons all-purpose
1/4 teaspoon ground allspice
- Drain pineapple, reserving juice.
- Coarsely chop the ham. Place ham in food processor bowl; process about 30 seconds or until coarsely ground. In a mixing bowl combine the pineapple, ground ham, ground pork, green pepper, flour and allspice. Shape into six (1/2-inch-thick) patties. Place patties on an unheated rack in a broiler pan. Broil 6 inches from heat about 8 minutes.
- Meanwhile, in a small saucepan cook pineapple juice over medium heat until reduced by half. Brush the patties with half of the pineapple juice; turn and broil 6 minutes longer. Brush patties with the remaining pineapple juice.
