Hawaiian Pineapple Turkey Burger Recipe with Teriyaki Mango Sauce if you’re looking for a traditional burger alternative that’s lower in fat and calories but still big on flavor, this is your burger.
This burger has a diverse flavor profile from sweet to spicy. It’s crunchy, creamy and soul-satisfying.
I realize it’s not ‘grilling’ season, but in the South it’s always grilling season. Grilling, or barbecuing, is a religion kind of like football is a religion. We have warm enough weather save a few weekends a year that it’s warm enough and nice enough to grill out.
Consequently, if it is too cold to grill out or you just don’t want to light the grill, this burger cooks just as wonderfully in a grill pan on your stove top.

Most noteworthy, we all think of big cuts of fatty meats on the grill. However, you can grill and still be healthy. You can eat burgers and still be healthy. And, guys, before you turn your nose up at a turkey burger, give it a try. It’s a double-fisted burger. There’s a lot of running-down-your-arm-juicy-flavors going on here!
Turkey burgers are lean, low in carbohydrates, and high in protein. I used Jennie-O All-White Meat Turkey Burgers which are gluten-free and all natural. Jennie-O also has ground turkey that would make fantastic burgers.
If you’re watching your carb intake, you can wrap these burgers with lettuce instead of a bun. Or, you may want to use a gluten-free or whole wheat bun. There are a lot of healthy options available.
I topped my burgers with this amazing Spicy Mango Mayonnaise. It’s not exactly healthy, but it sure is good! You can use a lower fat or olive oil mayonnaise if you prefer.
