Grilled Spicy-Sweet Ham-Pineapple Skewer Appetizers

Total Time:
20 min
Cook:
20 min

Yield:
6-8 servings

Ingredients
  • ¼ cup pure maple syrup
  • ¼ teaspoon cayenne pepper sauce, optional
  • 4 ounces thin slices black forest ham (about 5 slices)
  • 1 pound fresh pineapple chunks
  • 2 jalapenos, thinly sliced and seeded
  • 20 mini skewers
Directions
  • Heat an outdoor grill or grill pan to medium heat.

  • Stir the syrup and hot sauce, if you'd like these extra spicy, in a small bowl. Cut each slice of ham into strips a little wider than each pineapple chunk, about 1½ inches. Wrap each strip around a pineapple chunk, top with a jalapeno slice, and skewer.

  • Grill, turning once, until grill marks appear, about 4 minutes. Lightly brush with the syrup mixture and grill until the honey caramelizes onto the skewers, about 2 minutes. Use a spatula to remove from the grill to avoid tearing the ham. Serve hot, warm, or at room temperature.
