Grilled Pineapple Sandwich…. ummm Yeah!

by zesty on June 4, 2010 · 11 comments

In honor of the weirdest sandwich post on Wednesday and reading the comments I was inspired to do something a little off the wall so to speak.  I had some fresh pineapple in the fridge and a loaf of homemade bread from the local bakery.  I thought what the heck let’s give it a grill.  It has been raining cats and dogs here as of late so I decided just to do the grilling on the George Foreman grill.

I was unsure of how the pineapple would hold up so I did a quick grill of that first and set it aside as I assembled the sandwich.


  • 2 slices of thick whole wheat bread
  • Sliced fresh pineapple
  • Drizzle of honey
  • Bunch of parsley
  • Dash of hot sauce
  • Mozzarella


  1. Preheat the grill to medium high heat and grill off the pineapple and set aside
  2. Take the two slices of bread and drizzle honey on one side.
  3. Place a thick slice of pineapple on top.
  4. Add hot sauce, parsley and cheese
  5. Set the second slice of bread on top and grill until golden brown and melted.
  6. ENJOY!

Zesty Tip: Make it crunchy!  The pineapple has a lot of natural juice in the slice so grilling it before hand was a great idea.  Keep the cheese heavy as it will lock the juice in the pineapple and keep the bread crunchy.

The sandwich was actually quite tasty.  The one thing I did notice about it was the sweetness… duh right?  But I found the little shot of hot sauce definitely help balance all the sugars from both the pineapple and the honey.  I would try this again but I think over the open flame of the barbecue for more flavor.

Have a terrific Friday and wish me luck tomorrow as I put forth my handy man skills and donate some time to the habitat for humanity for the annual “Baby Barn Blitz”.  Hopefully it is sunny where you are.

Take care

Your grilled sandwich makes me miss my Foreman grill. Must buy a new one when I move out…

I feel like that sandwich is just begging for a slice of ham. Yum!

Sounds sooo good to me! Of course I grew up eating my very strange gramma’s concoctions………..she use to take white bread from the fridge (not in the wrapper) put a big glob of stone cold margarine (also from the fridge without being covered!) and about a 1/2 cup of sugar in the middle. She would fold it over, and there you have it, a sugar sandwich! For gramma, that counted as cooking!
