Grilled Cinnamon Sugared Pineapple Slices
Have you ever had the pleasure of going to a Brazilian Restaurant Buffet before?
If you have, then you may be familiar with this delicious dessert treat that is an all-around crowd pleaser, these grilled cinnamon sugared pineapple slices are simply delicious!
We were first introduced to these delectable slices of heaven a few years ago on a family vacation to Myrtle Beach.
We were driving around the touristy area looking for a place to check-in for dinner.
Lo and behold, the beautiful lull of palm trees and island music from Rios Brazilian Steakhouse caught our eyes and the wonderful aromas of grilled delicacies hung on our noses.
If you ever get the chance to visit Myrtle Beach, go treat yourselves to dinner at Rios Brazilian Steakhouse.
It is heaven on earth! (drools)
However, if you’re on a tight budget and would like to recreate a little sliver of your very own heaven on earth, try your hand at making these grilled cinnamon sugared pineapple slices at home.
