Aloha! Here is a nifty little appetizer to serve at a Hawaiian wedding shower, or any party with a tropical theme. It is simple to prep with just three ingredients – fresh pineapple, bacon, and brown sugar.

When asked to bring an appetizer to a party, anything wrapped bacon is sure to be a hit. Smoky bacon paired with tropical sweet-tart pineapple is a winning combination, guaranteeing this appetizer will be the first one to disappear.

Store-bought Hawaiian BBQ Sauce served on the side as a dip adds another smoky-sweet layer, enhancing the ripe pineapple and the umami bacon flavors. Arrive at the party, and just reheat your appetizer in a toaster oven then add it to the buffet. You will hear mahalo until the last tasty morsel is gone.

Soak toothpicks in water. Cut bacon strips in half width-wise. Wrap bacon around pineapple. Secure with toothpick. Sprinkle bacon with brown sugar. Bake on a rimmed baking sheet in a 375°F oven until bacon is cooked (about 18 minutes with convection). Serve warm bacon wrapped pineapple appetizers with Hawaiian BBQ sauce as a dip on the side.

Tip: Line baking sheet pan with parchment paper for a (much) easier clean up.
