Healthy spicy Hawaiian burgers

    30 min

    My recipe for healthy, spicy Hawaiian burger. It's simple to make and tastes great, the pineapple goes very well with the spicy kick and provides a great flavour combination. They hold their shape well so can be grilled or BBQ'd for a healthier option. The additional ingredients help to pack out the minced beef and provide a portion of healthy vegetables. This recipe makes four medium burgers dependent on how thick you prefer yours. I like my burgers quite spicy, so these have a little kick, but feel free to experiment and omit any ingredients you don't like, and indeed include any that you do to the burger mix. To keep things healthier I don't add mayonnaise or relish, I find that the pineapple is a great fruity and juicy substitute to keep things healthier.

    1. Add a little oil to a frying pan and add the chopped onions and mushrooms; fry until slightly browned.
    2. In a large bowl, combine the onion and mushroom mixture with all of the other burger ingredients and mix well. Divide the mixture into four, and a roll each portion into a small ball, then flatten and round the edges into a burger shape.
    3. Place burgers under a hot grill to cook to preference. Once cooked, the mozzarella can be placed on top and melted under the grill for a further minute.
    4. Place each burger into a wholemeal burger bun and garnish with pineapple and salad to taste.


    The chips served with this are made from two medium sized potatoes. They are sliced thinly in their skins, and sprinkled with chilli powder and paprika. They are then placed on a roasting tray, a little FryLight® is sprayed on the tray and chips, and they are then roasted in the oven at 180 C / Gas 4 for about 20 minutes (stir occasionally to allow for even cooking and browning on all sides), or until golden brown.
