Hawaiian Toast

Hawaiian Toast created by HeatherFeather

In Germany, you find this on many appetizer menus. I can't say that I have ever seen one in America, but they sure are tasty. These are especially kid-friendly. I also saw these made with diced chunks of ham and pineapple and shredded cheese on crusty rolls. French bread is really nice for these. Any bread will work as long as it is sturdy enough to hold the toppings.

ingredients

directions

  • Line a baking sheet with foil.
  • Toast bread slices in a toaster.
  • Place toast slices onto foil lined pan and top with 1 slice each ham, then a pineapple ring, then top with a slice of cheese.
  • Pop under the broiler briefly, just until the cheese melts- watch carefully- don't let the cheese burn.
  • This only takes a few minutes, depending upon your broiler, and will vary depending upon the type of cheese you use.
  • Remove toast from oven- the cheese should have melted around the pineapple ring, leaving a well to place the cherries.
  • Serve immediately.
  • NOTE: Some folks spread their toast with a little mayo, Miracle Whip, or butter before topping with the ham- by all means do so if you wish.

    I had this for the first time as a child in a restaurant near Disneyland. I fell in love with the dish and ordered it every day we were there (I begged to return to the same place repeatedly.) I've made it with cheddar and no cherries, and it's still good - an excellent quick sandwich. I've also grilled the bread rather than toasting it, and that's good too.

    I know of a different version of this recipe. I had it at a country club in Denmark. There were no marischino cherries, but there were slices of Tomatoes.

    This was a real crowd pleaser! I made "mini Hawaiian Toasts" and served them as finger foods on a platter. I cut the bread into quarters (and the meat, cheese and pineapple rings) and then used toothpicks to hold everything together. Also, I used German flag toothpicks. It was so tasty and colorful. Not to mention it was super easy to prepare. Huge hit! I will make these again.

    My aunt used to make it as a ligth evening snack. It can be made in advance and when needed just place it into the preheated oven. Not the broiler. For my daughter I omitted the pineapple, but everyone else just loved it. I only use cherries sometimes. Try it.
