As we say goodbye to the sizzling summer months, Labor Day gives us a great reason to get together with friends and family for one last warm-weather celebration. And if you’re racking your brain for the dish that screams summer's last hurrah – look no further than this Bacon Egg & Pineapple Turkey Burger from Eggland’s Best.
It’s sure to be a crowd-pleasing, classic dish! And if you’ve never grilled pineapple before, here’s a tip – lightly oil the grate and grill for 2 to 3 minutes per side or until grill marks appear. You’ll be able to savor the end of summer with this nutritious powerhouse meal, topped with a fresh Eggland’s Best egg.
Bacon Egg & Pineapple Turkey Burger:
Prep Time: 5 min Cook Time: 15 min Yield: 1 serving
1 turkey burger patty
1 slice fresh pineapple
1 slice turkey bacon
1 Eggland's Best Egg (Large)
1/2 cup greens (arugula, spinach, lettuce ... anything you like!)
Preheat your grill while seasoning the turkey burger to your liking. (I use a special burger blend, but salt and pepper works fine).
In a small non-stick pan, fry turkey bacon until crisp. Remove and set aside.
While the pan is still hot, turn heat to low and crack the egg on the pan. Cook for up to 5 minutes or until it’s done to your liking.
While the egg cooks, grill the pineapple and burger until it’s no longer pink in the middle and the pineapple has some nice grill marks.
Place burger over a bed of greens and top with BBQ sauce, bacon, pineapple, then the fried egg. ENJOY!
