My sister made this for me, and it was a nice taste. She had made it before, but since it was the first time I had tried it, I thought I would review it. I am definitely glad she left out the cloves. I am looking forward to bringing the recipe home and making it for my self. Thanks for posting.

Good enough to eat the leftovers (if there are any) for breakfast!

Great simple recipe :) I oven baked them too and they turned out great! The pineapple kept them so moist. I made a few changes such as packet crumbs and served on rice with extra sauce. Thanks for sharing :)
