Great breakfast for someone who wants fruit with a little crunch.

  • 1 whole pineapple, ripe
  • 1 cup macadamia nuts, coarsely chopped
  • ⅓ cup light brown sugar, packed
  • 4 Tablespoons unsalted butter or margarine, melted and slightly cooled
  • Pinch of salt

  1. Cut off the top of the pineapple. Cut a slice off the bottom to stabilize the pineapple, then peel from top to bottom with a sharp knife. Cut out any “eyes” in the fruit.
  2. Cut into 1/2-inch-thick slices. Using a small cookie cutter or biscuit cutter, cut the core out of each slice.
  3. Arrange the slices in a 9x13 or larger glass or Pyrex baking dish. Chill until ready to serve.
  4. When ready to serve preheat the broiler to very hot.
  5. In a small bowl, toss together the macadamia nuts, sugar, butter and salt. Spoon over the pineapple slices.
  6. Broil (not too close to the heat) until the topping is caramelized and bubbly, about 2 to 4 minutes. Serve hot.
