Like we said before, Casey and I are not expert grillers. But heck, these new grills of ours are getting us excited to sharpen our skills before the weather breaks! While Casey ambitiously tackled a real meal during her first grilling lesson, I wanted to ease into my grill master status a little more cautiously.
So instead of tackling an entire meal, I focused my skills on one part of the meal, actually my favorite part of the meal. Dessert. Who knew you could grill dessert? I’m liking this grill thing already….
Grilled Pineapple Recipe
1. Cut the pineapple into the size or shape that you desire
2. Cover each slice with plenty of brown sugar and cinnamon
3. Refrigerate the pineapple for 10-15 minutes to allow the cinnamon/sugar to soak in
4. Preheat the grill on medium heat to about 350 degrees
5. Grill pineapple until it is cooked to your desired darkness
The pull out prep table attached to our grill was so helpful! It gave me some extra space to store all of my grillin’ goodies and allowed me to keep my mess in one designated area.
I was pretty excited for my first grilling experience, can you tell?
In about 5 minutes, the pineapples were browned to perfection and ready to be served. This entire grilling experience took me less than 15 minutes, which is a perfect time table for a post dinner-party treat. I can’t wait to serve these to guests on my patio in a few months! Hopefully by then, I’ll be serving more than just dessert from the grill.
Plus, these grilled pineapples are an extra fabulous dessert because you don’t feel as guilty, since they are part fresh fruit!
My first grilling lesson was a huge success! I can’t wait to put this bad boy to work more often and get my grillin’ skills sharpened ASAP. Next on the grilling agenda…. an entree. Any recommendations or volunteer taste testers?
