Maple, Ham, & Pineapple Kabobs

 

Maple, Ham & Pineapple Kabobs

 

If you love the flavor combo of ham and pineapple, then get ready to indulge in this mouthwatering and uber simple meal.

So here’s the deal.  This can be done over the grill, or on the stove.  You can do it Kabob style or chunk style (non kabob).  Really it doesn’t matter.

What does matter?  You try it.  You eat it.  You LOVE it.

This is the #1 recipe we go to when we have leftover ham.  My daughter LOVES it and will scarf it all down and ask for more – which is a miracle as she’s recently decided I’m the worlds worst cook.  You win some days and you lose some days.  However, we just roll with the punches in our house.

Dying to try the recipe but don’t know how to make a ham?  Whip up these tasty ones.
