    2 tsp. jerk seasoning
    ½ medium red onion, cut into 1/8-in.-thick rings
    ½ medium red bell pepper, seeded and cut into ¼-in.-thick rings
    1 (12-oz.) pkg. Hy-Vee frozen fresh steam edamame soybeans in the pod

    • Cutting board
    • Sharp knife
    • 1¼-in.-round cookie cutter
    • Paper towels
    • Medium bowl
    • Grill
    • Metal spatula


    1. Cut pineapple into 8 (¼-in.-thick) slices. Use a 1¼-in.-round cookie cutter to remove and discard the core from each slice. Pat pineapple slices slightly dry with paper towels; set aside.

    4. Grill patties for 10 to 12 minutes or until patties reach 165 degrees, turning halfway through. Grill pineapple slices, onion rings and bell pepper rings for 6 to 8 minutes or until lightly charred, turning halfway through.

    5. Meanwhile, microwave edamame according to pkg. directions. Season to taste with salt.

    6. To assemble, layer onion, bell pepper, burgers, sesame teriyaki sauce, bacon and lettuce on 4 pineapple slices. Top with remaining 4 pineapple slices. Serve with edamame.
