I love when we grill out. Not only does the food always taste delicious but it saves me a bunch of dishes which is a win in my book. So when we’re firing up the grill I try to plan as much of the meal on there as possible. Last week I got the entire thing on the grill and not one pot or pan dirty. Perfect! We made Grilled Pineapple as a side dish and it was a hit with all four of us. The kids ate it right up, too!
This is so easy to make: Mix up a few simple ingredients that you probably already have at home, throw in some pineapple slices (you could probably use a drained can for this but fresh is delish!), marinate it and then grill. Easy! And doubly easy when your husband is making it.
- One pineapple, peeled and cored and sliced into rings (this is my new favorite kitchen tool for this job)
- 2 tablespoons of melted butter
- 1/2 teaspoon of honey
- A dash (or 2!) of hot pepper sauce
- Salt to taste
- Place the butter, honey, hot sauce, and salt in a resealable plastic baggie. You’ll need a gallon or quart sized bag.
- Mix those ingredients together just by squeezing the bag a few times from the outside.
- Add the pineapple and seal the bag. Move it around a bit to coat the pineapple in the sauce. Allow to marinate for 30 minutes or more. Marinate overnight for the best flavor!
- When you’re ready to grill, preheat the grill to high and lightly oil the grates. Place the pineapple on the grates and grill for about 3 minutes per side. You can rotate them about 90 degrees after 90 seconds or so to get some crisscross grill marks on them if you want to get fancy!
- Once they’re heated through and have grill marks they’re done. Take them off and plate them up and enjoy!
