Hawaiian split

Hawaiian split  (ha-wá-yan sh-plit; dw a Pacific island Hawaii + Eng split [sliced toppings]) [n.] a loaf of choco-brown bread topped with sliced or tidbits of ripe pineapple, sliced ham, grated cheese and overlaid with streaks of mayonnaise. 

The name is probably influenced by the American dessert “banana split” wherein the toppings has been modified making it to appear like a Hawaiian baked goodie by topping with pineapples sans a scoop of ice-cream, rather replaced with mayonnaise.
