This takes your grilled cheese up a notch or two. The addition of the pineapple and soy sauce adds just the sweet and salty punch when added to the two types of cheese , really is delightful.

  • 6 slices Canadian bacon or ham
  • 3 pineapple rings fresh pineapple rings, thinly sliced (I didn’t have slices, so used tidbits – mmm)
  • 2 ½ tablespoons butter divided
  • 1 teaspoon brown sugar
  • 1 tablespoon soy sauce
  • 4 slices sourdough bread
  • 8 slices Havarti
  • 2 oz. 4 slices sliced Gruyere any white cheese works, I used three kinds


  • Lightly spray skillet with cooking spray and heat over medium-high heat. Fry Canadian bacon, 2 min per side, remove from pan, and set aside.
  • Lower heat to medium and melt 1 tablespoon of the butter. Add pineapple and sprinkle sugar and soy sauce on top. Caramelize pineapple, cooking about 4 min per side. Set the pineapple aside and clean pan.
  • Spread the remaining butter on one side of each slice of sourdough.
  • Layer the 2 sandwiches, starting with the butter side down, with 2 slices of Havarti, then 3 slices of bacon, half the Gruyere, 1 ½ slices of pineapple, and 2 more slices Havarti. Topped off with the plain side of the remaining slices of bread.
  • Heat the pan over medium heat and cook the grilled cheese covered until golden and crispy with melty cheese, about 4 min per side.
