Best. Burger. Ever.

If you are a burger lover, you have to try this out!  It’s one you’ll be wanting again and again, and best of all?  You won’t take in half your day’s fat and calories by eating it!

This is one of many recipes from the book “The Abs Diet,” written by Men’s Health Editor-In-Chief David Zinczenko.  It’s a regular at our house!  For best results, grill it and use a couple of pieces of mesquite wood while you’re at it.

Big Kahuna Recovery Burger
Big Kahuna Recovery Burger


    10 oz ground turkey, divided into two patties
    4 Tbsp teriyaki sauce
    2 slices fresh pineapple
    2 thick slices red onion
    2 whole-wheat buns toasted
    1/2 jalapeño, sliced thin
    2 slices Swiss cheese


Follow the “Best Burger Guidelines” below, basting with the teriyaki sauce as you go.

While the burgers cook, grill the pineapple and onion until lightly charred.

Put each burger on a bun and layer on onion, pineapple, jalapeño, and cheese; top with more sauce.


_Best Burger Guidelines_

Have your butcher grind it fresh and make sure that they use the medium grind so that you get a juicy and moist burger.

Take the meat out of the fridge an hour before cooking. Bringing it closer to room temperature will help the burger to cook more evenly. Rub it with olive oil, salt, and pepper.

Use high heat when you cook it – If you don’t hear the sizzle when it hits the grill, it’s just not hot enough. Be sure you cook it for 3 to 4 minutes on each side and (if you must) only add cheese at the end.

Be sure to let it rest 3 to 4 minutes before eating so the juices redistribute themselves through the meat.
