Oven Grilled Peach & Queen Pineapple Bake

We are celebrating mothers this month and we asked our chef partners to make it pretty and say it with flowers!  So, treat your Mom like a Queen with this easy yet insanely delicious Queen Pineapple recipe.

So….um … where are the flowers in this recipe?

Well, our super-queen of the kitchen Izelle Hoffmann always likes to take an unusual angle and she chose to make this particular dish for a very special reason! Did you know that one pineapple is made up of dozens of individual flowerets that all grow together to form the entire pineapple fruit?

Believe it or not, each scale on the pineapple is evidence of a separate flower!

Go on! Spoil your mum with flowers!
