Bun-less Bacon Wrapped Pineapple Burgers - Paleo

These burgers were awesome- the bacon added a salty flavor and the pineapple added a sweet flavor. These are the ultimate summer bbq burger (too bad it's winter!). And they are so easy to throw together.

Bun-less Bacon Wrapped Pineapple Burgers


8 slices of bacon
4 slices of pineapple
2 pound of ground meat

Makes 4 burgers


I used a whole pineapple, so I started by chopping off the rind then cutting them into one inch slices.

 Then I cut out the core- I used a heart shaped cookie cutter because it's almost Valentine's Day!

Season the meat to your liking, then form it into 4 patties. I used ground chicken because that's what I had in my fridge. 

Crisscross two pieces of bacon (+). Place the burger patty in the center then place a pineapple slice on the top. Pull the bacon over the top and secure it with a toothpick if necessary.

Plop them onto the grill, or if it's pushing negative temperatures outside, just cook them on the george foreman or in the oven instead!

You could dip them in bbq sauce or ketchup, but I found that they were awesome on their own.
 I served them with some roasted broccoli. Delicious! 

Of course Cooper was waiting patiently to get in on some of the bacon action
