The acidic sweetness of pineapple goes well with the typical burger, but especially so when you have bacon in there too. It adds a bit of a 'tropical' flavour which is perfectly suited to a summer's lunch at the beach in my corner of the world.
I love all the ideas for variations posted here. I'm putting weight on just reading the menu!
I have heard of pineapple being on top of a burger, but never tried it. Also, my wife LOVES pineapple and ham pizza. I don't care much for it, but she sure enjoys it.
