Easy Rumaki with Pineapple


“This combines the crunchiness of bacon and water chestnuts with the wonderful flavors of pineapple. We make it right before watching football games, but it doesn’t last long.”


cooking spray
24 (1 inch) cubes fresh pineapple
24 water chestnut slices
8 thick-cut bacon slices, cut crosswise into 3 pieces
24 toothpicks
1/2 cup low-fat sesame-ginger salad dressing
1 tablespoon chopped green onion, or to taste


Preheat oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C). Line the bottom section of a broiler pan with aluminum foil, top with the broiler rack, and spray rack with cooking spray.

Place a water chestnut slice atop each pineapple cube; wrap each with 1 bacon slice, securing with a toothpick. Arrange wrapped pineapple on the prepared broiler rack.

Bake in the preheated oven for 7 minutes; turn and continue baking until bacon is almost crisp, about 8 more minutes. Brush rumaki with sesame-ginger dressing and continue baking until bacon is crisp, about 5 more minutes. Garnish rumaki with green onion.
