2+ tablespoons teriyaki sauce

8 tablespoons SunButter, any smooth variety

4 pineapple rings, canned or fresh

4 lettuce leaves

red onion rings

In large bowl combine ground beef and 2 tablespoons teriyaki sauce, mix gently.


Divide ground beef into 8 equal portions and flatten to equal sized patties. Place 2 tablespoons SunButter in center of one patty, top with additional patty and seal edges around SunButter. Repeat with remaining patties to make 4 stuffed burgers, season with salt and pepper if desired; cover and set aside.


Spray skillet or grill pan with cooking spray and heat over medium high heat.


Place pineapple rings on heated pan, cook 2 to 3 minutes, then flip. Brush top with teriyaki sauce and heat an additional 1 to 2 minutes. Remove to plate and keep warm.


Place stuffed burgers in heated pan and cook for 6 to 9 minutes before gently flipping over. Brush additional teriyaki sauce on top of burger if desired. Do not press down on burger. Cook an additional 6 to 9 minutes or until internal temperature reaches 165˚F when measured with meat thermometer.
