Breakfast on the Grill

Before going on the grill

We actually had this for dinner a few nights ago. We are going camping at the end of the month and I wanted to give this meal a trial run before I make it while camping. It was really yummy! And it should be a cinch to make while camping.

1 can (8 oz) pineapple chunks
3 cups cubed French bread
1/4 cup butter, melted
1/3 cup sugar
1-1/2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
8 slices Canadian bacon, quartered

Drain the pineapple and reserve 2 tablespoons of juice.
Place bread in a large bowl, drizzle with butter and toss to coat. Combine sugar and cinnamon; sprinkle over bread mixture and toss to coat.
Transfer bread mixture to a double thickness of greased heavy-duty foil. Add Canadian bacon and pineapple; drizzle with reserved pineapple juice.
Fold foil around bread mixture and seal tightly. Grill, covered, over medium heat for 4-5 minutes on each side or until heated through.
After being grilled. See how the pineapple and bacon started caramelizing? Mmm yummy!

Oh, that looks so good! One of those dishes that can't really make up its mind whether to be savory or sweet, so it's a little of both. Next time we go camping, this will be on the menu! Of course, I may not wait until then...

I'm going camping soon and I think this might be good to try. It's almost a pizza...I wonder about adding a little cheese at the end for a few minutes?
