- Heat oil in a 12-inch nonstick skillet over medium heat until shimmering; place 2 slices of bread in a single layer in skillet. Spread 2 teaspoons of sugar over each piece of bread; cook bread until well-browned, about 4 to 5 minutes. Flip bread over; cook until well-browned on other side and sugar is melted, about 2 minutes more. Flip bread over again; place a pineapple ring on top of each slice. Flip bread again; cook until pineapple is warm, about 2 to 3 minutes. Set aside and cover to keep warm; repeat with remaining ingredients. Serve immediately. Yields 1 slice per serving.
