Cheddar with Grilled Pineapple, Smoked Paprika and Honey Butter

Makes 16 pieces

1/2 pineapple, cored and sliced 1/2" thick

- Kowalski's Extra Virgin Olive Oil

1/4 cup Velvet Bees Gourmet Honey Butter

6 oz. aged Cheddar cheese, sliced 1/8" thick

- smoked paprika, to taste (optional)

- cayenne pepper, to taste (optional)


Lightly brush pineapple with oil. Grill over high heat, covered, until pineapple is nicely charred (about 6 min. per side). Cut grilled pineapple slices into quarters; place a slice of cheese over each piece of pineapple and drizzle with a little honey butter. Skewer 1 piece each of pineapple and cheese together on a toothpick; dust lightly with paprika and cayenne, if desired.
