Been dying to try one of those teriyaki-tastic, crazy-high-in-calories Banzai Burgers at Red Robin? Have this instead...

Ingredients:
1 slice pineapple (fresh or packed in juice)
1 frozen meatless hamburger-style patty with 100 calories or less
One 100-calorie flat sandwich bun
1 tbsp. thick teriyaki marinade or sauce
2 thick slices tomato
1 lettuce leaf
1/2 tbsp. fat-free mayonnaise

Directions:
Bring a grill pan (or skillet) sprayed with nonstick spray to medium-high heat. Cook pineapple until slightly blackened and caramelized, about 3 minutes per side.

Remove pineapple and reduce heat to medium. Cook patty for 4 minutes per side, or until cooked through.

Split bun into halves and place the patty on the bottom half. Top with teriyaki marinade/sauce, pineapple, tomato, and lettuce. Spread the top half of the bun with mayo and finish off your burger with it. Now CHOMP!

Teri-YUKi!
What do you get when you match a beefy burger patty slathered in sugary teriyaki sauce with pineapple, a blob of mayo, and fatty cheddar cheese... all on a ginormous calorie-packed bun?! You get the chewable monstrosity known as the Banzai Burger at Red Robin! And that burger happens to pack in 1,000+ calories, even before you add any sides at all to your plate! Toss in some fries and, well, forget it -- those numbers are too depressing to type. Don't chew it, people. Make your very own tasty version of this popular Hawaiian burger instead, right in your kitchen. Load it up with our ingredient swaps, and serve it proudly with a stack of our Lord of the Onion Rings. It's gonna be a pineappley, teriyaki-sauced day after all. Yay!
