Sweet Pineapple Hame Skewers

These Sweet Pineapple Ham Skewers are your next go-to summer dinner. They're simple to put together, cheap to make, and cook within minutes.

We already had Maple Syrup, BBQ Sauce, and rice on hand - which makes this meal even cheaper! The serving sizes vary depending on how much your family can eat.


Sweet Pineapple Ham Skewers

serves 2 to 4 | Total Time: 25 minutes


9oz Honey Ham

1 large pineapple, chunked

1/4 cup maple syrup

1/4 BBQ sauce

Cooked rice (for the side)


1. If you are using wooden skewers, soak in water for 15 to 30 minutes prior to using them. While they soak, heat your grill to medium high heat, keeping one side cool and away from coals or flames.

2. Thread the skewers alternating a slice of ham and a piece of pineapple.

To make sure I had even amount of pineapple/ham on each skewer, I began with threading a pineapple chunk on all four skewers. Then, i went through and threaded a ham slice on all four. And continued until I had used up all of the ham and pineapple.

3. Combine 1/4 cup maple syrup and 1/4 cup BBQ sauce in a small bowl. Brush over one side of each skewer.

3. Once the grill is hot, place the ham skewers on direct heat, with the glazed side down. Brush the new topside of the skewer with the glaze. Flip the skewer when the first side begins to char.

4. After all sides are charred to your liking, remove from heat and let cook over the cool side for about 5 minutes.

The pineapple does become tender, so be careful when moving them.

5. Remove from the grill once the pineapple are soft and the glaze has cooked.

6. Slide the ham and pineapple off of the skewer and on top of a bed of rice.
