Grilled Pineapple Strawberry Shells

This recipe was suppose to be something different, not completely different but slightly different. It was going to be pineapple, strawberry, pound cake kabobs. We however stopped on the way home from church on Sunday to pick up the ingredients and some hamburgers to grill with them. We were looking at the pound cake that was right next to those dessert shells that you can get.

Two things came to mind. One was that the shells were a third of the price. The second was that it was going to be a lot of pound cake for us to eat before we left on vacation. So guess what Shells won, and we altered the recipe and it turned out wonderful. I would expect nothing less with grill master Jim at my side.

We loved the combination of the grilled warm pineapple and strawberries. I kind of wish that we would have made more :) I have to warn you that the shells get crunchy on the grill. At first we were surprised by this... but then after we had a few bites we decided that we loved that. The crunchy texture with the soft warm fruit is amazing!

I have been thinking so much about vacation that I kind of forgot that labor day was this weekend. Everyone will be having lots of bbqs and grilling during the last few days of summer. So I hope everyone enjoyed all the grilled desserts this week, and hopefully some of you will try them this weekend :) Happy Labor Day Everyone!

Servings: 4 complete shells modify for more (buy the big can of pineapple and cut more strawberries :))


dessert shells - 4
pineapple slices - small can will give you 4 slices
strawberries - 8-10 cut into quarters

Cut three pieces of foil about 12 inches long apiece. Fold the edges like a picture frame to make them a little sturdier when you have to move them.

Cut up the strawberries into quarters, and place them on the foil. Place the pineapple slices on another piece of foil. Place the shells on the last piece of foil.

Set the grill on low heat. Put the shells on indirect heat to start out with. Cook on low heat for about 10 minutes. Then take the pineapples and shells off the foil and grill directly on the grill for about 2 minutes. Turn when you have nice looking grill marks :)

Take off the grill and assemble: shell, pineapple slice, and then strawberries.
