1 pound ground beef 1 can (8 ounce size) pineapple slices 3/4 cup teriyaki sauce 1 red onion, sliced 1 tablespoon margarine 4 lettuce leaves 4 hamburger buns (onion or sesame are best) 4 slices Swiss cheese 4 slices cooked bacon
Drain the pineapple juice into a small bowl; add the teriyaki sauce. Place 3 Tb. in a resealable bag. Add the pineapple and rotate to coat; set aside.
Form the hamburger into patties and place in an 8x8 pan. Pour remaining teriyaki sauce on top of burgers. Marinate for 5-10 minutes, turning once.
In a skillet saute onion in butter until tender; about 5 minutes. Grill, fry or broil burgers til done. Place pineapple on grill or under broiler to heat through. Layer lettuce and onion on bottom of bun. Top with the burger, cheese and pineapple and bacon. Replace tops and serve immediately.
These are fantastic! The only thing I do differently is use monterey jack cheese instead of swiss.

I prepared these for a tailgate party for the Pro Bowl. The recipe was a success and very tasty. I will definitely make these again.

I made these last night and will definitely be fixing them again. They were delicious! I used canadian bacon slices in place of the bacon, because we don't eat much bacon, but other than that I followed the recipe. I will be passing this one on to friends and family.
