Can I use Canned Pineapple?

Bacon Pineapple Bites are best made with fresh pineapple. But if you are in a pinch and can’t find a good pineapple, you can easily use canned pineapple.

Make sure to remove any excess moisture from the pineapple. I would drain the juice from the can and put the pineapple on a plate lined with paper towels. This will help absorb any moister.

Ingredients needed - pineapple, bacon, brown sugar, toothpicks

Ingredients: 

  • Pineapple (cut into 1 inch pieces) 
  • Bacon 
  • Brown Sugar 

Supplies: 

  • Toothpicks 

How to Make Bacon Wrapped Pineapple: 

  • Step 1 – Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F. 
  • Step 2 – Cut the bacon into thirds. Place the bacon on a baking sheet lined with foil and bake for 6 minutes flipping the bacon halfway through the cook time. Cook for a few minutes or until bacon has crispy edges.

Variations:

  • Fresh Pineapple – You can use fresh or canned pineapple for this recipe. 
  • Pineapple – We purchased a whole pineapple and made this recipe. But you can easily purchase fresh pineapple that is already been cut. Whatever works for your family.
  • Sweetener – Instead of dipping in brown sugar, drizzle with honey or maple syrup.
  • BBQ Sauce – Brush the pineapple with BBQ Sauce for a smokey and tangy flavor.
  • Pineapple Size – Instead of cutting your pineapple into bites, you can cut them into pineapple spears. You may need to wrap a full size piece of bacon around the pineapple chunk.
  • Brown Sugar – You can use light brown sugar or dark brown sugar.
  • Grill – These bacon wrapped pineapple recipe would be great on the grill. It gives the smoky flavor on the grill. I would recommend making pineapple spears instead of bites.

Bacon Wrapped Pineapple Bites Tips:

  • Bacon – A thick cut bacon works the best in this recipe. 
  • Secure Bacon – Make sure to secure the bacon with toothpicks. You may even need to use two toothpicks.
  • Prepare Baking Sheet – Prepare baking sheet before placing bacon on it. Line baking sheet with aluminum foil as this prevent the bacon from sticking and it easier to clean up.
  • Bacon – We cut out bacon into thirds. Depending on how big you cut your pineapple, you may need a larger piece of bacon.

How to Serve Pineapple Wrapped in Bacon Recipe:

These Bacon wrapped Pineapple are perfect served as an appetizer. Because they only require 3 ingredients and very little prep work, this is always on the menu. You can serve with a side of ranch dipping sauce or BBQ sauce if you prefer.

This appetizer is perfect served before your holiday dinner. We think they are very fancy looking, and your guest will think you spent all day on them.

How to Store:

These are best served immediately but you can refrigerate the leftovers in an air tight container for up to 4 days. 

When you are ready to serve again, I would place in the oven to reheat or the air fryer. This will make the bacon crispy again.

Will Bacon get Crispy in the Oven?

Yes, bacon will get crispy when cooked in the oven. We usually fry our bacon in a skillet on the stove, but I have loved making it in the oven recently.

Making the bacon in the oven is less messy and I don’t get grease splatter over me.

In this recipe, we recommend cooking bacon for a few minutes prior to wrapping the pineapple. This allows it to get a little cooked and it is easier to wrap around the bacon.
