Bacon-Wrapped Pineapple Appetizers (Microwave)

Total Time
Prep 10 mins
Cook 5 mins

This is a different, outstanding appetizer. They always disappear fast when served. Original recipe is from the Sharp Carousel Recipe Book which came with my first microwave. I've made them in other carousel microwaves also. The time to cook is actually 5 - 9 minutes depending on your microwave's power. Just watch them cook the first time for the light browning and you'll do fine. Prep/Cook time does not include marinating time. Hope you enjoy!

These were great and way easy to make!! We used fresh pineapple so we didn't have a whole lot of pineapple juice so we added 1 T. lime juice along with the juices we were able to get from the pineapple. Awesome recipe!!
