Pineapple-Turkey Melts

Yield Makes 6 sandwiches


  • 1 (20-ounce) can DOLE Pineapple Slices
  • 2 tablespoons butter or margarine
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon pepper
  • 1 (8-ounce) container soft chive-and-onion cream cheese
  • 2 (8-ounce) French bread loaves, split
  • 1 pound sliced deli turkey or chicken
  • 1 (8-ounce) package Swiss cheese slices

How to Make It

  1. Drain pineapple slices, and cut each slice in half.

  2. Melt butter in a skillet over medium heat; add pineapple, and sauté 2 to 3 minutes. Sprinkle pineapple evenly with salt and pepper.

  3. Spread cream cheese evenly on each French bread half. Layer bottom bread halves evenly with pineapple, turkey, and Swiss cheese slices; top with French bread halves.

  4. Cook sandwiches on a lightly greased griddle over medium heat 5 minutes on each side or until bread is toasted and cheese melts. Cut sandwiches into thirds.
