Caramelized Pineapple Picks

These elegant Pineapple Gouda picks are caramelized in a skillet, then drizzled with honey.  An easy, delicious bite, perfect for any summer gathering!

  • 1 small fresh pineapple, peeled, cored and cut into 1-inch pieces
  • 2 tablespoons butter, cubed
  • 2 tablespoons brown sugar
  • 16 ounces Marieke® Gouda Young cheese, cut into 1-inch pieces
  • Picks or toothpicks
1. Warm a large, nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Toast pineapple, in batches, for 2-3 minutes on each side or until brown. Set aside.
2. Warm butter and brown sugar in the same pan over medium heat. Cook and stir for 2-3 minutes or until brown sugar is dissolved and mixture is slightly thickened. Add pineapple in batches; toss to coat.
3. Remove from the heat. Cool pineapple and sauce slightly. Thread gouda and pineapple on picks; drizzle with remaining sauce.
