For the Burger Patties:

  • 1 lb ground beef
  • Salt and pepper, to taste

For the Pineapple Salsa:

  • 1 cup pineapple, diced
  • 1/4 cup red onion, finely chopped
  • 1/4 cup red bell pepper, finely chopped
  • 1/4 cup fresh cilantro, chopped
  • 1 jalapeno, seeded and finely chopped
  • 1 lime, juiced
  • Salt, to taste

For Assembly:

  • 4 hamburger buns
  • 4 slices of ham
  • 4 slices of Swiss cheese
  • Lettuce leaves
  • Mayonnaise (optional)
  • Teriyaki sauce (optional)


  1. Make the Pineapple Salsa: In a medium bowl, combine the pineapple, red onion, red bell pepper, cilantro, jalapeno, and lime juice. Mix well and season with salt. Set aside for the flavors to meld.
  2. Prepare the Grill: Preheat your grill to medium-high heat.
  3. Season and Grill the Patties: Season the ground beef with salt and pepper, then shape it into four equal-sized patties. Grill the patties for about 4-5 minutes per side or until they reach your desired level of doneness.
  4. Grill the Ham: Place the ham slices on the grill and cook for 1-2 minutes per side until heated through and slightly crispy.
  5. Assemble the Burgers: Toast the hamburger buns on the grill for about 1 minute until lightly browned. Spread mayonnaise on the bottom half of each bun (if using). Place a lettuce leaf on top, followed by a grilled burger patty, a slice of Swiss cheese, a slice of grilled ham, and a generous spoonful of pineapple salsa. Drizzle with teriyaki sauce (if using) and top with the other half of the bun.
  6. Serve: Serve the Aloha Burgers immediately with your favorite sides, such as grilled vegetables, coleslaw, or potato salad.
