Hawaiian Grilled Cheese

Hi!  Welcome back to another scrumptious Friday!  Did you know that it’s National Grilled Cheese Day tomorrow?  Yes there’s such a thing.  Thank goodness for the internet or we’d never know about these things!  😉

And we all have had a grilled cheese in some way, shape or form…and the more grilled cheese I have, the more I realize I like them fancy like this one I posted last year.  Who knew?

So when I was thinking of what kind of grilled cheese to make for today, my husband told me about one called the Hawaii 5-0 that he had last week at a restaurant here in Calgary.  A Hawaiian grilled cheese?  Genius really.

This sandwich tastes like an inside out Hawaiian pizza.  The pineapple in it makes the sandwich.  Seriously.



Hawaiian Grilled Cheese


  • slices of bread
  • slices of ham
  • rings of fresh or canned pineapple
  • pizza sauce
  • slices of mozzarella cheese
  • butter


  1. Preheat a grill to medium heat.
  2. Butter the outsides of your bread, then spread the pizza sauce onto the inside of the bread.
  3. Add the ham, a pineapple ring then the mozzarella cheese.
  4. Cook on your grill until each side of the sandwich is crunchy and golden brown, and the cheese is melted. About 3 minutes per side.
  5. Or if you can cook these in a sandwich or panini press.
