"I started making these for family get-togethers and everyone LOVED them. No one could eat enough of them. I am also using them when I cater my daughter's wedding." — Iron Chef Hamy

sliced bacon, cut into thirds
1 (20 ounce) can
pineapple chunks in juice, drained
packed brown sugar
My whole family loved these. I especially loved the sauce. I did find that they took a bit longer to bake than the recomended time. And, because I loved the sauce so much, but hated all of the bacon grease, what I did was cook them with half of the sauce first. Then, a few minutes before they were done, I transfered them into another pan dabbing off any grease onto a paper towel. Then I poured the remaining sauce over them in the new pan. It got rid of them sitting in the grease and the sauce didn't just bake onto the pan, it stayed on the wraps.
I will make these again, I wasnt fully fussed as my pineapple was a bit bitter this time. It was still enjoyed though
Dont forget, the easiest way to bake these delicious treats is on a broiler pan, so that the grease drains off naturally (foil lined, of course)!
NICE combination. This took a little time to wrap but well worth it. I took them to a party and got only 2. Now I have to make them again so I can get some for myself. Great reviews. I baked them in the oven and then drained them before putting the sauce over them. I turned the oven off after putting the sauce on and left them sit in the oven another 15 minutes. I only made a half batch of the sauce and it was perfect for the amount of pineapple. After draining the bacon fat off, this is the perfect amount on top of the pineapple. My family loves these and request them often.
Very, very good, and oh so easy. I was looking for a recipe to use up the last bit f fresh pineapple i had, it worked perfect. Although i would not think that it would turn out as well with canned pineapple, fresh is a must! but great fun snack to go with anything
Delicious! I did made this recipe using shrimp instead of pineapple too! Everyone loved it!!
This is a delicious recipe. Also for a change, instead of using the brown sugar and mayo sauce, try maple syrup.
My mom made this - sans sauce - when I was a kid and I loved it. I started making it for my ex-boyfriend when I got tired of baking him cookies (he's such a picky eater I couldn't make him actual meals). He was suspicious (and usually hates bacon) but he loves pineapple so was willing to try.
He loved it! Everyone I've made it for since has only tried it to humor me, and then gobbled it down! A great way to inflate a cook's ego! ^.^
Note: I always put either a half-slice of bacon around each chunk, or a whole slice around two or three chunks together.
