Using your hands, press and pat four quarter pound patties, making sure to wash hands before and after handling the raw meat. Place a divot into the center of each burger to prevent them from "puffing up" while cooking.
Grill the burgers for about 5 minutes per side for a medium doneness. Add the Swiss cheese, close the lid to the grill and let cheese melt for about 1 minute. Remove the burgers from the grill.
Top burgers with teriyaki sauce. If you don't prefer teriyaki, a tangy BBQ sauce is also excellent.
Add 1-2 slices of grilled pineapple to each burger. Simple canned pineapple rings work well. You can also use fresh pineapple slices.
Enjoy the burgers on toasted sesame seed burger buns. Additional toppings include lettuce, red onion slices, crisp bacon and sliced tomatoes.
