Roasted Pineapple with Macadamia Nuts

This dessert is surprisingly refreshing and light. Perfect after a heavy meal. 


2 pineapple spears*                                    $0.94

1 tablespoon butter, melted                    $0.04

1/2 cup macadamia nuts, chopped      $0.67

1/4 cup brown sugar                                  $0.17

                      Total cost for 2 servings:    $1.82

Set the oven to Broil. Mix together chopped nuts, melted butter, and brown sugar. Arrange pineapple spears on a baking sheet. Top with nut mixture. Broil for 5-6 minutes. Be careful not to burn the nuts. 


*Of course, we bought our pineapple at Trader Joes, where it comes in spear pieces. You can certainly buy a whole pineapple and cut it into rings or spears, OR you can buy canned pineapple which usually comes in a ring shape. All of these will work just fine.
