Ingredients

  • 1 medium pineapple

  • 12 slices bacon

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 400°F. Line a large rimmed baking sheet with foil.

  2. Cut off top and bottom of pineapple and remove the skin. Cut the pineapple in quarters lengthwise through the core; cut out the core. (Reserve half the pineapple for another use.) Cut 2 of the pieces in half lengthwise, then cut crosswise into 6 equal pieces to make 24 chunks.

  3. Cut bacon slices in half. Wrap 1 bacon piece around a pineapple chunk and place on the prepared baking sheet. Repeat with the remaining bacon pieces and pineapple chunks.

  4. Bake until the bacon is cooked through and crispy, 30 to 40 minutes.

Nutrition information is calculated by a registered dietitian using an ingredient database but should be considered an estimate.

* Daily Values (DVs) are the recommended amounts of nutrients to consume each day. Percent Daily Value (%DV) found on nutrition labels tells you how much a serving of a particular food or recipe contributes to each of those total recommended amounts. Per the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), the daily value is based on a standard 2,000 calorie diet. Depending on your calorie needs or if you have a health condition, you may need more or less of particular nutrients. (For example, it’s recommended that people following a heart-healthy diet eat less sodium on a daily basis compared to those following a standard diet.)
