    If you are looking for something easy and flavorful to serve at your next holiday party, these sweet and savory bacon pineapple bites are it. You need only 3 ingredients – pineapple, bacon, and optionally brown sugar. You can omit the sugar if you want to make them healthier, they will still turn out fantastic. I love the combination of the crispy savory bacon wrapped around the sweet baked pineapple. So much flavor, they turned out incredible!

    This pineapple appetizer is perfect for serving at parties or get-togethers because you can do all the prep work in advance and bake right before your event. Leftovers (if any) will also keep in the refrigerator for a couple of days.

    Tips for Making These Bacon Wrapped Pineapple Bites

    • Use fresh pineapple rather than canned if possible. Nothing beats the delicious sweet flavor of fresh pineapple.
    • Roll the bacon bites in coconut (or brown) sugar to make them even more delicious, irresistible and crispy.
    • Place the wrapped bacon pineapple bites on a wire rack in the baking sheet. This helps with air circulate around and helps them bake and crisp up from all sides.
    • Let the bacon pineapple bites rest for 5 minutes so the bacon can crisp up a little bit more.

    Can I Make These Bacon Pineapple Bites Ahead of Time

    These bacon-wrapped pineapple bites would be a great appetizer for Thanksgiving, Christmas, New Year, 4th of July or any party. You can assemble the pineapple bites by wrapping them in bacon a day or two before baking them. Store them in a covered dish in the refrigerator for a few hours or for a day. All you have to do about 30 minutes before your guests arrive is to pop them in the oven.

    These sweet and savory bites are an easy and simple appetizer that everyone will enjoy.

    How To Reheat Them or Keep Them Warm

    If you want to reheat the pineapple appetizer, you can reheat them in a preheated 350 F oven for 10 -15 minutes.

    If you are planning to serve them somewhere where you don’t have access to an oven, you can use a chafing dish to keep them warm during the party. Or if you want to keep them warm until you get to the party, just cover the dish with aluminum foil after you bake them.
