For the summer, I wanted to focus on some tropical recipes we could add to our weekly meal plan or to have company over for a Tiki party. After reading the menu description for Trader Sam’s Hawaiian Cheeseburger I knew I had to make this and it would be a big hit with the family. Honestly I would love to fly down right now and have one from the source!
