1 pound 95% lean ground Beef
1/4 cup soft Bread crumbs
1 Egg white
1/4 cup mango Chutney
2 teaspoons Caribbean Jerk seasoning
4 fresh or canned Pineapple slices, cut one-half inch thick
4 kaiser Rolls or hamburger Buns, split
4 slices sharp Cheddar cheese


1. Combine ground beef, bread crumbs, egg white, chutney and jerk seasoning in large bowl, mixing lightly but thoroughly. Lightly shape into four one-half-inch thick patties.

2. Place patties in center of grid over medium, ash-covered coals; arrange pineapple slices around patties. Grill patties, uncovered, 11 to 13 minutes (over medium heat on preheated gas grill, covered, 7 to 8 minutes) until instant-read thermometer inserted horizontally into center registers 160°F, turning occasionally.

3. Grill pineapple, uncovered, 8 minutes or until heated through. (Gas grilling times remain the same.) About 2 minutes before burgers are done, place rolls, cut sides down, on grid. Grill until lightly toasted. During last minute of grilling, top each burger with cheese.

4. Place 1 burger and pineapple slice on bottom of each bun. Close sandwiches.

If fruit chunks in chutney are large, use kitchen shears to snip them into smaller pieces.
