An unusual layered brunch sandwich, old family weekend favorite. A delicious flavor combination of bacon, cheese and pineapple. You'll see why they call Hawaii the Sandwich Islands!

This reminded me of a sandwich I had at Disney World but theirs was on a roll with Chicken breast. I used 4 boneless Chiken breast and pounded w/ mallot to flatten. Used 8oz pkg. bacon and par fried in pan removed and sauteed chicken lightly in grease. Put chicken on large bake sheet covered w/ cheddar. Then I topped with par cooked bacon put one pineapple slice on top (small cans have around 4 slices in them.) Then generously sprinkled w/ brown sugar. I baked under broiler until nice and bubbly. Put in a split roll and poured on my favorite bbq sauce. Everyone raved!! Try it this way It's more fattening but oh so good!! Thanks Debbie! Read More

You can't just call everything you put pineapples on from "Hawaii". That's seems to be a trend on this site. Sandwichs tasted fine. Read More

Because I seem to be out of bacon today (how did I run out of bacon seriously) I used leftover sliced ham from dinner a couple nights back. My family thought this was great. I did not toast the bread I just cooked them like you would a grilled cheese sandwich. The boys thought this was great! Read More

An interesting combination... even better when you vary the type of bread used and use Turkey bacon instead (it doesn't make the bread as greasy). It's a little like Hawaiian pizza without the sauce. Read More

While I was making this hubby was watching and he said "What in the world are you doing?!!!!" I was a little hesitant too to try this recipe but finally did. I'll have to say this was pretty good and if you like ham and pineapple together then this will appeal to your taste buds too. I'd eat it again but it didn't really have any WOW factor. A bit on the dry side though and could use some type of sauce maybe a honey mustard? Thanks this was a nice change of pace for lunch. Read More

Really good. I used an Italian bread loaf and pre toasted the slices first then topped it with everything. I also used mozzarella cheese instead. Tasted like a Hawaiian pizza. Read More

These are delicious! I made them with English Muffins instead of regular bread. That's the way my mom made them when I was a kid!! Read More
