Mouthwatering Grilled Pineapple

As most of you know, we did a barbecue for my son's first birthday party. Well, being that his birthday is in the summer, not only were hamburgers & hot dogs a must, but so were delicious summer fruits! (which go amazingly with my marshmallow cream cheese fruit dip) This is why we decided it was a MUST to recreate the mouthwatering grilled pineapples from Tucanos.

tucanos grilled pineapple

Ingredients:

  • 2 cans DOLE pineapple rings
  • 3/4 cup brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup butter
  • 1 tsp cinnamon

Directions:

  • Melt butter in a bowl and mix brown sugar until well incorporated
  • Pour sugar mixture over pineapple rings and top with cinnamon
  • Cook on grill (or sauce pan) until golden brown, roughly 5 or 6 minutes
  • Add additional brown sugar to pineapple on grill, as needed (I like them extra sweet)
Serving size:  2 slices, makes 2 slices
Macros per serving: 9.2 g fat, 34.9 g carbs, .1 g protein

And there you have it! The easiest way to make grilled pineapple! And I assure you, using canned pineapple really tastes just as good, but makes your life sooo much easier! Plus you get to have the cute rings!

Here is a pic from our party. We purchased that little disposable grate the pineapples are on at the grocery store for like a buck. You can put them directly on the grill if you want though..
