Grilled Pineapple Rings

pineapple2One of my favorite things to do on a grill is to grill pineapple and my girls love it and I especially love it because fresh pineapple is my favorite fruit. Its a simple dessert trick that is the perfect finale to a backyard BBQ. Make sure to get your parents permission and help with the hot grill and the cutting if you need it.

  • 1 fresh pineapple (peeled and sliced into rings)
  • 1 cup Brown Sugar (optional)
  • 2 tsp. Ground Cinnamon (optional)
  1. Preheat bbq to medium heat and lightly oil the grate.
  2. Peel, slice and core the pineapple. Check out Chef Kendra’s video on how to do this .
  3. Mix brown sugar and cinnamon and spread in a shallow dish
  4. Dip both sides of each pineapple ring into the mixture.
  5. Place rings on the grill and cook for 3-5 min per side.
  6. Remove from Grill and serve warm by themselves or with ice cream.
NOTES: You can also cut the pineapple into spears, which is easier if you don’t have a apple corer.
