Sweet and Cheesy Burger

How do you “Kraft” your perfect burger? Do you like it plain? Does it need ketchup, lettuce, cheese, bacon or more to be considered a good burger?

There are so many ways to eat a burger. I am pretty boring. Most of the time I just wanted cheese (lots of melted cheese), ketchup and maybe a little lettuce and onions. That all changed when a friend from Mexico made me a burger. He had owned a burger stand and he really knows how to make a great burger.

I had assumed it would be a spicy burger and I am not a fan of spicy stuff, so I was a little reluctant to try this burger.  Then he told me it had pineapples on it and I thought that was a little weird! It wasn’t spicy. The meat had so much flavor and just a little bit of sweetness. I never put anything in my meat either when I made burgers. Now my burgers have some flavor! So if yo are a little reluctant to try this – don’t be. It is really delicious and easy!

I love shopping at Walmart because everything is so easy to find. Plus they have the lowest prices. You can get a great meal to feed your family without spending a fortune. You can afford to pick up some paper plates so you don’t have to wash many dishes after this meal!

This is my new go to recipe. Even if you don’t like the addition of pineapples, the meat has a great flavor. This is the basic recipe using 1 pound of beef. You can just alter the ingredients based on the amount of beef you are using. It’s easy to double or triple the recipe!


Sweet and Cheesy Burger Recipe

  • 1 pound ground beef
  • 1 garlic clove, grated or minced
  • 2 teaspoons dried parsley
  • 1/4 cup plain bread crumbs
  • 1 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • Kraft American Singles or Kraft Colby Jack cheese slices
  • Kraft Mayo
  • pineapple rings
  • 4-6 burger buns
  • ketchup`

Side options:

  • Kraft Macaroni & Cheese
  • French fries with Kraft Ranch dressing for dipping
  • Side salad with your favorite Kraft Dressing


  1. In a large blow add the beef, garlic, parsley, bread crumbs, Worcestershire sauce and salt. Mix well until all the ingredients are combined. (I like to ground up the parsley a little in the palms of my hands to release more flavor.)
  2. Form into 4-6 patties. Grill on each side for about 7 minutes.
  3. When you flip the patties add the pineapple slices on the grill and grill for about 2 minutes on each side.
  4. Add the cheese to the patties so it can get nice and melted.
  5. Layer your burger – bottom bun, burger, Kraft cheese, pineapple, ketchup, smear some Kraft Mayo on the top bun and enjoy! (Or you can melt the cheese over the pineapple so they stick better.)

We love to eat burgers with Kraft Macaroni and cheese and some French Fries that we can dip in Kraft Ranch dressing. Plus adults love to have a little side salad with a burger and Kraft has a huge variety of dressings.

Note– Do not use seasoned bread crumbs in this recipe. The flavor will be over powering! If you want a super cheesy burger add a piece Kraft Colby Jack cheese on the bottom and Kraft American singles on the top. You will really love the little sweetness the pineapple gives this burger.

There will be many opportunities to grill up a burger this summer. What is your favorite way to Kraft your burger? #SayCheeseburger

My Hubs loves hamburgers and would eat them every day if I would agree to it. I am going to try this recipe and see what he thinks.

I love burgers, though I don’t indulge in them very often. I’ve never thought to put pineapple on a burger, but I’m always willing to try something new.

YUM! If there is one thing we love in our house, it’s a great burger. That sounds so delicious.

Krystal May 26, 2014 at 8:09 am

Looks like an awesome recipe. We always have burger nights at our home!

Amanda Her May 26, 2014 at 8:32 am

Oh my – pineapple on a burger? I don’t think I’ve ever had that but it looks like something I definitely have to try!

Kecia May 26, 2014 at 10:51 am

Never thought to add pineapple to a burger! I usually make mine with lettuce, ketchup, cheese, a dab of mayo, and lots of pickles!!

veronica May 26, 2014 at 11:37 am

We don’t eat burgers and meat and such anymore in my home. But I always love an easy breezy meal idea.

Carly Bellard May 26, 2014 at 11:39 am

I love grilled pineapple! I am not sure that I would want it on a burger- but I would for sure eat them side by side!

Krystyn @ Really, Are You Serious? May 26, 2014 at 12:47 pm

I never would have thought to put pineapple on a burger. But, it sure sounds tasty!

Jenni E. May 26, 2014 at 2:04 pm

I’ve never thought to put pineapple on a burger!! It sounds delicious! We get it on pizza all the time. We’ve fired up the grill this year so we’ll have to give these a try. Definitely with the pineapple and oozing with cheese.

Mitch May 26, 2014 at 2:43 pm

Yum, so many hamburger options. We would like the mac and cheese burger!

Debbie Denny May 26, 2014 at 3:18 pm

I love pineapple on burgers. The others options are so great. Make a fantastic burger.,

Nancy May 26, 2014 at 4:08 pm

Oh, perfect! Fruit with Meat! It makes me feel healthy with a fresh touch to summer. I’m going to try this for sure!

Jeanine @ May 26, 2014 at 4:52 pm

susan May 26, 2014 at 4:53 pm

hmm sweet and cheesy? that is a great combo, I would love to make this for my family.

Debi May 26, 2014 at 5:04 pm

That looks like a really good burger. I have never had a pineapple on my burger before

Christie May 27, 2014 at 5:25 am

Grilled pineapple sounds amazing! You won’t even need ketchup!

Rosey May 27, 2014 at 7:14 am

I think the addition of pineapple is a good one. I would love to just try some grilled pineapple (alone for me!). I bet I’d love it (and the guys would like it on their burgers).

Kristy May 27, 2014 at 8:52 am

These look perfect for summer time! #client

Janell May 27, 2014 at 8:59 am

Thanks! They really are refreshing for summer time!

Candace Hagerty May 27, 2014 at 9:06 am

I always have a sweet and tangy craving and this looks like it will hit the spot in more ways then one. I just sent hubby to get some pineapple now.

Toni May 27, 2014 at 1:25 pm

Looks like hamburgers are really being enjoyed. I like mine with swiss cheese!

Bobbie May 27, 2014 at 1:49 pm

I LOVE this! My burgers are LOADED. I always spice the meat, but I love it. I haven’t had a traditional meat and cheese cheeseburger in YEARS! I am going to save this recipe. Looks delicious!

Onica {MommyFactor} May 27, 2014 at 1:59 pm

I’ve had this type of hamburger before. It’s so yummy. Just he right amount of sweet and meaty.

StacieinAtlanta May 28, 2014 at 11:36 am

That looks like a great burger! I love pineapple, so this would be right up my alley.

Joanna Sormunen May 30, 2014 at 5:06 pm
