Recipe Hawaiian Teriyaki Burgers

8 1/4 ounces pineapple slices
1/4 cup soy sauce
2 tbsp dry sherry
4 tsp sesame seeds
1/4 tsp ground ginger
3/4 cup fine soft bread crumbs
2 tbsp instant minced onion
1 egg, beaten
1/2 tsp salt
1 pound ground lean beef

Drain 1/3 cup syrup from pineapple and combine with soy sauce, sherry, sesame seeds and ginger. Set aside 1/4 cup of this Teriyaki mixture for basting burgers and pineapple. Combine remainder with crumbs, onion, egg and salt. Let stand a minute until crumbs and onion are moistened. Add beef and mix well. Shape into 4 thick patties – about 3 1/2″ in diameter. Arrange on flat baking pan. Bake in a hot oven (400° F) 15 minutes. Meanwhile, drain pineapple slices well. After burgers have baked 15 minutes, top each with a pineapple slice and spoon a tablespoon Teriyaki sauce over each. Return to oven for 5 minutes longer. Baste again with pan juices just before serving. Serve plain or with cooked rice. Makes 4 servings of Hawaiian Teriyaki Burgers.
