Pineapple-Teriyaki Turkey Burger

The other weekend Mother Nature blessed us with almost 80 degree temperatures on a Sunday. I was planning on making breakfast risotto that evening but since it was currently 80 degrees in the apartment as well, I opted to not turn on the stove at all.

I had to run out to the store for some ingredient I had forgotten and while there I got the idea to just pick up what we needed to make turkey burgers. The first thing that caught my eye was pineapple and I knew right away I was going to make a turkey burger with pineapple. I called Tom to confirm my plans and he suggested adding teriyaki into the mix.
