This is the perfect brunch / lunch/ BBQ accompaniment

This recipe came about a couple of weeks ago when attempting to use up the vast amount of leftover pineapple I had from making a chutney at the Birmingham Foodies Festival with my onion bhajis.

I for one love pineapple, but I was literally faced with half a tonne of the stuff so I needed something that went beyond ham and pineapple chutney sandwiches and the obligatory fruit salad.

Bung them in the oven and hey presto, a perfect accompaniment for a Summer BBQ or better yet, a tasty weekend breakfast.
