How to Make a Bacon Pineapple Appetizer

Just like the ingredients, this recipe is so easy to throw together.

First, cube the pineapples then roll them in brown sugar if you want them to be extra sweet and tasty. Next, wrap the pineapple in bacon and use a toothpick to keep it secure. Repeat this for remaining pineapple- or at least all the pineapple you want to make.

Cooking Pineapple and Bacon in the Air Fryer

This recipe only takes 10 minutes to cook! It is so easy! Make sure you lightly spray the air fryer basket with your favorite oil (I love to use avocado oil in my Mistifi oil sprayer). This will prevent the bacon from sticking to the bottom of the basket. OR you could also you air fryer parchment paper. This will make clean up a breeze.

Then cook for 10 minutes at 400˚F/200˚C. Make sure to flip at the halfway point.
