Terrific Teriyaki Burgers

I've never made my own hamburgers before this recipe. We made these for Father's Day and they were a HUGE hit! I made some alterations to make it mine. Enjoy!

Terrific Teriyaki Burgers:

1/4 cup ketchup
2 tablespoons reduced-sodium soy sauce
1 tablespoon brown sugar

1-1/2 teaspoons ground ginger
1 garlic clove, minced
1/2 teaspoon sesame oil

1 egg white, lightly beaten
1/3 cup dry bread crumbs
3 green onions, chopped
2 tablespoons unsweetened crushed pineapple
2 lbs ground beef
6 slices unsweetened pineapple
8 King's Hawaiian Sweet Sandwich Rolls
Sliced cheese, lettuce, tomatoes - if desired

•In a small bowl, combine the ketchup, soy sauce, brown sugar, pineapple, ginger, garlic and sesame oil; set aside.

•In a large bowl, combine the egg white, bread crumbs, onions, crushed pineapple and 3 tablespoons reserved ketchup mixture. Crumble beef over mixture and mix well. Shape into eight burgers.
