3. For a charcoal or gas grill, place pineapple wedges on the rack of a covered grill directly over medium heat. Grill for 3 to 4 minutes or until golden grill marks appear, turning occasionally. Remove from grill. Chop pineapple; pat dry with paper towels.

4. Place a grill basket on grill rack until basket is hot. Add onion rings to hot basket. Grill for 6 to 8 minutes or until onion rings are tender and slightly charred, stirring frequently.

5. Toast buns from Grilled Hot Dogs. Place grilled frankfurters in toasted buns. Top with pineapple and grilled onion rings. Drizzle with teriyaki sauce. If desired, sprinkle with green onions and sesame seeds.

From the Test Kitchen*Tip:
  • If you like, look for peeled and cored fresh pineapple in the produce section with the ready-to-eat, cut fruit.
  • We suggest using apple- or mango-flavor chicken sausage with these toppings.
