Just a little something fun to do – Bacon Wrapped Pineapple bites. Perfect for a pre-game snack, or part of your grilling Sunday menu. We’ve not tried grilling these, but if you are careful, you could do them on the grill.

For now, we’ll stick with broiling these little sweet bacon-y snacks in the broiler.

Just assemble bacon wrapped pineapple chunks and broil for 6-8 minutes per side until done, turning halfway through.

We have a new convection oven, and since we always bake our bacon in a sheet pan, we thought simply baking these bites would work. Nope, don’t do that. These appetizers need the broiler to get the job done – or finished at least.

We also dusted a few with Albukirky BBQ rub

Use your favorite BBQ rub or seasoning for a savory snack

…and brushed on a little Born to Hula Smokin’ Pineapple sauce on some others for variety.

They make great appetizers with so many different flavor combos.

    Here’s what you will need.

  • 1 pound regular bacon (thick sliced won’t do)
  • 1 can pineapple chunks (20 ounce)
  • toothpicks

  1. I love the combo of sweet and salty here! Definitely going to have to try. And, this is paleo! Awesome!

  2. I have never thought of dusting them with a little spicy goodness from a bbq rub. I am going to have to try that next time.

    • Next time, I’d go with a much sweeter rub. The Albukirky is excellent, but a little too spicy for this app. Thanks for the inspiration Rex!

  3. Nice! That sounds absolutely delicious. I’ve never tried bacon wrapped pineapple, but bacon wrapped dates are pretty amazing. Great write up Brian =)

  4. These made my mouth water as soon as I saw the title. I love pineapple!

    In Gastro Grilling, Ted Reader does a rotisserie pineapple that is unreal sounding but guess what….his doesn’t have bacon!

    It’s hard to go wrong with meat on a stick – even a very small stick. I wish these were strategically placed around my house.

    I will try this for appetizers @ my next dinner part with drinks. I usually make stuffed dates with cheese, wrapped in bacon. The pineapple would be less time making them than the dates.
