Try a maple burger that’s reminiscent of glazed ham

Larry Crowe / The Associated PressA Maple Ham Burger is made from ground ham and has hints of pineapple-glazed baked ham.

These burgers made from ground lean ham and spiked with maple syrup taste a bit like a pineapple-glazed baked ham. Serve with coleslaw tossed with oil and vinegar.

Preparation time, start to finish: 25 minutes. Makes 4 servings.

1 pound lean ground pork

3/4 pound deli-sliced honey-baked ham, coarsely chopped

2 tablespoons pure maple syrup

1 tablespoon grill seasoning

2 teaspoons hot pepper sauce

1/2 teaspoon dry mustard

2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil

Four 1/2-inch-thick slices fresh pineapple

4 kaiser rolls, split and toasted

1 cup pineapple or mango chutney

8 red-leaf lettuce leaves

1 red onion, thinly sliced

In a large bowl, combine the pork, ham, maple syrup, grill seasoning, hot sauce and mustard. Form into 4 patties. Set aside.

In a large, nonstick skillet, heat 1 tablespoon oil over medium-high. Add the pineapple slices and cook, turning once, until golden, about 5 minutes. Transfer the pineapple to a plate and set aside.

In the same skillet, heat the remaining oil over medium-high. Add the burgers and cook, turning once, until cooked through, 8 to 10 minutes.

Place 1 burger on each roll bottom. Top with chutney, lettuce, a pineapple slice, onion and a roll top.
