Grilled Pineapple Dessert Recipe

Ingredients

  • 3-15 oz cans of pineapple rings
  • 2 1/2 cups shredded cheddar cheese
  • 8 Tbsp. flour
  • 3/4 cup sugar
  • 30 buttery round crackers, crushed
  • 1/2 cup butter, sliced
  • Nonstick spray
  • 1 jar Harry & David® charred pineapple relish

Instructions

  1. Light your grill and preheat for 6-8 minutes. Grill the pineapple slices until grill marks appear on both sides, then remove. Preheat oven to 350°F. In a large bowl, combine flour, cheese and sugar. Layer pineapple rings in the bottom of a 9” x 13” casserole dish sprayed with nonstick spray. Put a thin layer of pineapple relish over the pineapple rings. Top with cheese mixture. Top that with crushed crackers and dot with butter. Bake for 20-25 minutes, until top is browned.
