Juicy cheeseburger topped with grilled pineapple and crispy bacon. Add honey mustard sauce and what you have is an aloha burger recipe that’s almost as good as Jollibee’s!
Are you familiar with Jollibee? Ask any of your Filipino friends and watch their faces brighten up like it’s Christmas LOL. Even Anthony Bourdain got on the Jollibee train.
Jollibee is a popular Filipino burger chain but it’s more like a rite of passage for every Filipino child – at one point in your life your parents will bring you to Jollibee where you will get your first taste of the glorious Yum Burger and Jolly Spaghetti, which you will end up loving for the rest of your life.
Over the years they’ve come up with delicious innovations (Jolly Hotdog, anyone?) but by far my favourite is the Amazing Aloha. It’s their Champ Burger but made more amazing (see what they did there?) with pineapple and bacon bits on top.
Fourth of July and Canada Day are right around the corner which means it’s BBQ time! So we thought why not re-create the aloha burger recipe? It’s not exactly the Amazing Aloha but it is dang amazing.
Jollibee’s burger patty recipe is a highly guarded secret so we turned to Red’s equally delicious recipe. It’s simple, straightforward and you probably already have all the ingredients sitting in your pantry!
Already got a favourite burger recipe? You can use that too.
Because I think the grilled pineapple is the star of this show. It makes the burger extra juicy and flavourful. And it’s certainly a unique addition to your burger stack.
Worried about the sweetness? Don’t be. You have the crispy bacon to give you the boost of salt you need. And we all know bacon makes everything better.
