Recipe from

Southern Living


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


Drain pineapple slices, and cut each slice in half.

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

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.

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.

Note: For testing purposes only, we used 1 (16-ounce) package Pepperidge Farm Hot 'n' Crusty Twin French Bread.
