Happy Bastille Day! Oddly enough, although it’s kinda a random international holiday to be stuck in my head, it’s on my mind for good reason. One, it’s my very close friend Valerie’s birthday (woot!). And second, last year on this date we finally had the chance to put our little baby girl in her July 4th outfit. Huh?! I know. Weird.
Let me explain. She was born on July 1, but was stuck in the NICU for a full week. Asheley was so bummed that Olivia didn’t get to wear her little newborn Independence day onesie, so we got her all dressed up for Bastille Day instead.
So yea, it might not be a holiday we celebrate here in the states. But no worries. Every day in the summer is a great day to get outside and start up that grill. Especially when these Grilled Pineapple Teriyaki Turkey Burgers with Avocado and Charred Scallion Aioli is on the menu. Heck yes.
If you’ve never grilled pineapple, let me be the first to apologize to you. Because your life is incomplete. It’s so freaking good. Once you start grilling yo’ pineapple, you won’t be able to stop. Cover it in some cinnamon sugar before grilling and you have an amazing quick dessert, or sprinkle with ancho chili powder and add to some guacamole with bacon. Mmm hmmm.
And ermagherd… charred scallion aioli. It sounds so fancy and adds a crazy amount of flavor to burgers and sandwiches, but sshhhhh. It’s ridiculously simple. Don’t worry, your secret is safe with me.
Avocado, because well, avocado. You’d be hard pressed to find a situation where avocado doesn’t make your dish better.
So us Americans have it in our DNA at this point that turkey is where it’s at for Thanksgiving and a bunch of other holidays, but you know what? It’s freaking fantastic year round. There’s a little bit of Turketarian in all of us. It’s part of a healthy lifestyle and is a great lean protein to bring the family around the dinner table.

- 4 turkey burgers
- 4 burger buns
- 4 slices fresh pineapple
- 1 bunch scallions
- 1 avocado, mashed
- ½ cup teriyaki sauce
- ½ cup mayonnaise
- 1 clove garlic, minced
- Vegetable oil

- Preheat grill over medium-high heat. Lightly brush turkey burgers, pineapple, and scallions with oil and season generously with Kosher salt. Grill burgers on each side until cooked through, about 5 minutes per side. During the last 2 minutes of grilling, brush half of the teriyaki sauce on the burgers. Grill pineapple, flipping once, about 3 to 4 minutes per side. Grill scallions, turning as needed, until charred in spots, about 4 to 5 minutes total.
- Finely chop charred scallions and in a small mixing bowl, combine with mayonnaise and minced garlic. Season with Kosher salt.
- Place a turkey burger on each bun and brush with more teriyaki sauce. Top with mashed avocado, a grilled pineapple slice, and a good slathering of charred scallion aioli. Devour immediately.
