  1. Place the pineapple in a large bowl, and toss with sweet and sour sauce. Cover, and marinate overnight in the refrigerator.
  2. To prevent burning, place toothpicks in a small bowl of water and soak 10 minutes.
  3. Place a paper towel over a microwave-safe dish and arrange part of the bacon on the towel; cover with another paper towel. Cook the bacon in a microwave oven on medium just until partially cooked and still pliable, 2 to 3 minutes. Repeat with remaining bacon. Cut bacon strips in half.
  4. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Lightly grease a baking sheet and set aside.
  5. Wrap half a bacon strip around each pineapple chunk. Secure bacon with a toothpick, and place on baking sheet. Repeat with remaining bacon and pineapple chunks.
  6. Bake in preheated oven until bacon is crisp, 20 to 30 minutes. Cool 5 minutes before serving.

Very popular and highly addictive. Depending on crowd I add 1/2 C of hot sauce to mixture. Also, have found is best to wrap so the fatty end of bacon is on the outside to best render/crisp up.

Husband *LOVED* them! I baked some per the recipe, and grilled some. Both ways were wonderful. I do not think that the sweet and sour sauce made much of a diference.

Used fresh pineapple. Not a bad recipe great for summer and the grill.

The flavor was wonderful - 5 stars. I used fresh pineapple chunks and marinated them in Sweet Chili Sauce. The method - well - let's just say could use some improvement. I used an oiled rack ...

Get ready to do an oven cleaning from the bacon grease in the oven afterwards, BUT - the end result is a delicious appetizer! I made these a while back for a friend's party, and they were a huge...

My wife tried these for our holiday party. WOW! These were great. Of course everyone in our family loves bacon...and pineapple, so these were bound to be a hit!

I make these with just brown sugar instead of the sweet n sour sauce. I think it works best when I cut each slice of bacon in half. I baked at 375 for 20 minutes, then turned and baked for ano...
