Pineapple Burger Sliders

Have you ever had a pineapple burger? A big thick burger filled with a ring of pineapple and a special sauce.
This is a delicious memory from my childhood. My mom made them and they are so easy… however, when I tried to recreate this memory my burgers turned out dry and flavorless (excluding the pineapple and sauce in the middle). So I decided to change it up a bit. I made these first as meatballs and then when I came across Sweet Hawaiian rolls and a slider maker thingy… it's like it was meant to be! Sweet, Simple and Delicious!!!
1 lb ground beef (I use 85/15)
I small can crushed pineapple, drained
1/4 cup molasses
1/4 cup ketchup
1/4 cup mustard
Salt and Pepper
Sweet Hawaiian Rolls

Mix molasses, ketchup and mustard to create a sauce. Pour half of sauce into a large bowl, then add pineapple, ground beef, salt and pepper and combine ingredients together but do not over mix. Shape small burgers and cook in a skillet until completely cooked through basting with sauce towards the end.
Slice each roll in half, fill with a mini burger, top with additional sauce and Voila!! A super addictive, satisfyingly sweet and savory slider! Enjoy one or two or three… I won't tell ;-)
