Pineapple salsa and jack cheese take you out of the ordinary, just like a well-deserved vacation!
- For the pineapple salsa, mix the pineapple, green pepper, onion and cilantro. Add lime juice and salt to taste, and toss mixture. Set aside.
- Mix ground beef, salt, black pepper, and onion powder thoroughly and form mixture into 4 equal oblong patties (in the shape of the Garlic Texas Toast, as this will serve as your bun). Set aside.
- Heat grill to a medium temperature. Grill burger patties for 5-7 minutes on each side until desired doneness (the internal temperature reaches 145°F for a medium burger). Meanwhile, toast or bake garlic bread according to package instructions.
- To assemble burger, layer the garlic toast with 1/4 cup butter lettuce leaves, 1 burger patty, 1 slice of Pepper Jack cheese, 1/4 of the pineapple salsa, 1/4 of the avocado slices and top with garlic toast.
