Buy Ingredients

INSTRUCTIONS 

Prepare the bacon

  • Cut bacon in thirds crosswise and set aside

Prepare pineapple

  • Toss pineapple chunks in 2 tablespoons of brown sugar if using. If not using brown sugar, move to bacon wrapping.

Assemble it all

  • Wrap each pineapple chunk with bacon and secure seam with tooth picks or cocktail sticks.
  • Repeat process till all the pineapples have been wrapped.
  • Roll wrapped pineapples in the rest of the brown sugar if using.

Air fry

  • Place bacon wrapped pineapples in the air fryer basket. Do not overcrowd the basket
  • Set temperature to 400°F / 200°C and bake for 10 to 12 mins flipping half way through. Remove and cook subsequent batches.

NOTES

  1. If using canned pineapple, buy the rings and cut it into thirds.
  2. Use cold bacon. It’s easier to cut cold bacon without stretching and distorting the shape.
  3. No need to preheat the air fryer. However start checking the second batch at 10 mins if using a Ninja air fryer
  4. Do not overcrowd your basket. Cook in batches if needed. I used a 5.8qt air fryer 12 fits in mine at a time. Put whatever amount that will fit in yours without overcrowding the basket.
