Instructions Checklist
  • Heat a large skillet over medium-high heat. Spread butter onto one side of each slice of bread. Place up to 4 of the slices of bread, butter side down in the skillet. Top each piece with one slice of cheese, two slices of ham, and about 2 tablespoons of the crushed pineapple. Place remaining slices of bread on top with the butter side up. When the bottom of the sandwich is golden brown, flip sandwiches, and cook until browned on the other side, about 1 minute. Repeat steps with remaining ingredients if all four sandwiches do not fit in your skillet.

Loved these! Great variation on grilled cheese when we need a meal in a hurry. Two suggestions: toast the bread first and put the pineapple between the ham and the cheese. It really helps to keep the bread from getting soggy. Read More

Quite good! I used processed Swiss (can't compare to the real stuff) and fresh pineapple finely chopped. Youngest kid didn't like it but she is pretty picky. All around good use of what was on hand and much more interesting than plain grilled cheese. I made it in a grilled-cheese maker not a skillet. Read More

Very easy and yummy!!! When I was a teenager I worked for Steak Escape Sandwich Shop and we had a sandwich simular to this called the HAMBROSIA...this tastes very much like it!!!! Next time I'm going to sprinkle some pepper on the ham. This is very easy to make too. My 19 month old daughter LOVED it! Thanks so much tball! Read More

Had buns to use up so I grilled the insides of buns and layered cheese and ham on each side then pineapple in middle. Then wrapped in foil and into oven to warm/melt/toast. Read More

We are still trying to use up some ham from the holidays so I was happy to find this recipe. Pineapple works on pizza so why not sandwiches? Absolutely. The pineapple is a fantastic embellishment and meshes perfectly with the ham and cheese. I used rye bread for another interesting touch. I set the heat between medium and medium high and cooked each side for about 1:15. 25 seconds in the micro to finish melting the cheese and to make the sandwich piping hot and you have a lunch fit for a king.

This was quick and easy and sooo yummy. You could even dip in pizza sauce and it would taste like ham and pineapple pizza! Great for a busy evening. Read More

I made this for a quick lunch today bc we have ham sandwich meat and fresh pineapple. I don't have swiss cheese so I used American slices (not my favorite but at least it melts well!). I didn't find this to be soggy at all. I put the pineapple slices in between the ham and the cheese to protect the bread. I also used homemade bread--the Cottage Cheese Bread I on this site. Worked well. I think I would like it a bit better with dijon mustard on the bread but I'm of the opinion that any grilled cheese can be made better with dijon mustard or ketchup. Thanks for the recipe! Read More
