Pineapple Ham Grilled Chicken BBQ Burgers
Happy Wednesday from PA – we’re finally back after a few wonderful and amazing days at the beach. We ate a ton, went to the beach and relaxed with A’s grandmother. The Long Beach/Ocean Grove area is beautiful and we loved every minute. (Remember to check out Instagram for tons of pictures from the trip!)

Summer always puts us on a burger kick. We use the grill a few times each week and if we’re not grilling meats, we’re grilling vegetables. Grilled vegetables are a hundred times tastier than stove/oven-cooked vegetables (except for maybe this recipe) and so I have a tendency to want to grill everything.

Like today’s burger condiments. Grilled ham and pineapple top this BBQ slathered chicken burger, making the tastiest chicken burger combo. Be sure to use a high-quality BBQ sauce (or your favorite) – Weber is great as is Annies Organics. I especially like these because they don’t contain high fructose corn syrup and tend to be more basic in their ingredients than your typical BBQ sauce.
