These Bacon Wrapped Pineapple Bites are all the delicious parts of Hawaiian Pizza in one sweet little cube.   We do a lot of weekend entertaining, so I'm always looking for a new tasty treat to try on my guests and these were a hit.  I totally cheated and bought pre-cubed pineapple from the market, so they came together in no time at all and I was able to enjoy time (and food!) with our friends!

Can we talk about how much I love preparing bacon in the oven?  It makes no mess and renders so beautifully.  I'm personally a fan of thick cut bacon, but you could use whatever you prefer.  Thick cut takes a little longer to cook, but I'm thinking it's worth the wait.  You could do these on a stovetop, but I can't imagine why you'd want to.

Pineapple adds the perfect amount of sweet to offset the deep saltiness of bacon.  And then a little peppery barbecue sauce at the finish makes it really (really) hard to stop eating when you've had a reasonable amount.  Is there such thing as a reasonable amount of bacon wrapped food?  Probably not.

This recipe is so easy you can totally recruit your kids to help make it.  Cut the bacon with a pair of kitchen shears and pick up a container of pre-diced pineapple.  Put them to work while you enjoy a cocktail!

  1. How long do these hold up? Does the pineapple break down the bacon and give it a weird texture? They look fantastic, FYI

    1. Hi Jarrod - We serve them right away, so I'm not sure how long they would hold up. And no, I don't find that the pineapple gives the bacon a weird texture. Just tastes like bacon ;-) Thanks for commenting!
