Easy Grilled Pineapple
This dessert is perfect for your summertime barbecues. With nearly no prep time, and no oven to heat up the house, it can easily be made at the end of a hot, busy summer day.
Serves: 4
  • 4 ounces cream cheese, softened
  • 1/3 cup brown sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1 pinch of nutmeg
  • 1 small pineapple, peeled, sliced & cored
  • 2 tablespoon butter, melted
  • 1/3 cup brown sugar
  • 2 tablespoon chopped pecans
  1. Using a hand-held mixer, blend the cream cheese, 1/3 cup brown sugar, cinnamon and nutmeg. Set in the fridge until you are ready to use it.
  2. Place your 4 peeled, cored pineapple rings on a plate. Using a pastry brush, brush one side of the pineapple with melted butter, and sprinkle with brown sugar. Flip the pineapple slices over, and repeat.
  3. With your grill preheated to a medium-high heat, place pineapple slices on the oiled grill. Grill, without moving, for 5 minutes. Flip, and grill the second side for 5 minutes.
  4. Serve Philly Grilled Pineapple on a plate drizzled with chocolate sauce, and top each slice of pineapple with 1 Tbsp of the cream cheese mixture. Top with 2 maraschino cherries (optional). Serve immediately.
  5. The top may be sprinkled with chopped pecans, and a light dusting of fresh nutmeg before serving.
