“Mele Kalikimaka is the thing to say on a bright Hawaiian Christmas day / That's the island greeting that we send to you / From the land where palm trees sway.” Happy holidays, dear Home Chef-er, and no, we're not in Hawaii; we're in blustery, cold Chicago. But this burger makes us feel sunny and tropical, with charred pineapple and sweet teriyaki glaze. The island flavors of the burger aren't the only thing warming you up; sweet potatoes tossed with Sriracha make for a nice burst of heat on the side. Aloha!
