Can you feel it? Summer…sigh, it is almost over. Most of us have sent the kiddos back to school or are just about to. We may have to say good-bye to playing in the pool, late bedtimes, endless hours at the park, lemonade stands…but I refuse to say good-bye to BBQ’n. Nothing more delightful then throwing something on the grill. Avoiding the heat of a kitchen and the drudgery of cleaning up…seriously De.light.ful.

In honor of Summer today I am sharing a Banzai Sliders recipe- one of my new favorite burger. I mean really people…this burger is just deliciously delightful.

This burger is juicy…sauce dripping down your chin, who cares if you have a napkin, just keep eating delightful.

So fire up the grill. Cook up some fries, cut up some fruit, throw together a salad, and get ready for one more yummy Summer dinner.

Banzai Sliders (makes about 10)


1/2 lb ground chuck
1/2 lb ground sirloin
*or 1 lb of the same, your choice
can of sliced pineapple
small slices of cheddar cheese
shredded lettuce
sliced tomato
King Hawaiian rolls


Teriyaki Sauce {This is my go-to Teriyaki recipe- I use if for TONS of recipes}
1 3/4 cups water
1 cup packed brown sugar
1 cup soy sauce
1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
1/2 teaspoon onion powder


Mix all the ingredients in a small saucepan. Heat on med high heat till boiling. Turn down to let simmer for about 10 minutes. Let cool slightly. Pour sauce into a large enough rubbermaid type container. Put in the fridge and let chill for 30-45 minutes.

Meanwhile make hamburger patties. Mix hamburger and salt and pepper to taste. Form patties just larger than the diameter of your rolls.

Once the marinade has cooled, put the hamburger patties in one air tight container and the sliced pineapple in another. Pour the marinade over each, with a smaller amount going over the pineapple. Put everything in the fridge and let marinate for anywhere from 1-4 hours.

When time is up, grill the pineapple and also the patties.

Split and toast the rolls.

Assemble by stacking the patty, the cheese, the pineapple, tomato slice, and shredded lettuce.

Now serve with some fries…AND don’t forget the napkins.

Enjoy the last days of Summer.
