Christmas pineapple casserole

I make this pineapple dish every Christmas morning for brunch and I also make it through out the year as a side dish, but right now I’ve got my mind on Christmas.

So I wanted to share it with you.

It seems like when I make it, I’m always making it for a crowd so I double or even triple it.

In the pictures I’m posting, I’ve double the recipe, but I’m giving you the recipe for 6 servings

this is what you’ll need……….you only need 1 can of crushed pineapple to make the 6 serving size

drain some of the pineapple juice into your bowl so you can mix the sugar and flour in it………do not drain the remaining juice from the can, it all goes in the casserole

add 1/4 cup of sugar

then add 4 tablespoon of all-purpose flour

then whisk until it’s all combined and smooth

next add 1 – 20 oz can of crushed pineapple

and 1-1/4 cups of sharp cheddar cheese

give it a good stir

butter your baking dish……..I like to use the wax paper wrapper the butter comes in……….I’m lazy like that

dump it in the dish……..I know it looks a little “wet”………don’t fear, it’ll all work out in the end

empty 1/2 of a sleeve of Ritz crackers into a bowl

then go crazy till they’re all crushed

sprinkle on top evenly

and drizzle on 1/2 cup of melted butter… knew butter was going to be involved somewhere didn’t you………you know who you’re dealing with here

run the whole shooting match into a preheated oven at 325′ for 40 minutes

You won’t believe just how good this is!

by the way…..just a side note, yesterdays post titled “My pantry is Haunted” was originally written ” My panty is haunted”…….thank goodness for re-reading, I wish you could have seen me laughing as I changed it as fast as I could! It’s amazing how one little letter can make all the difference in the world.

see ya later,

    Caroline, although the idea of pineapple & cheese together doesn’t sound like it would taste good, I think I’m going to try this. Is it served as only a side or can it be an appetizer? What’s the consistency when baked?…:)JP

    The Wanna Be Country Girl Reply:

    JP the flavor is really good, and it goes wonderfully with pork! The consistency should not be runny, just give it a look and if it seem a little wet bake it a while longer. I don’t know why it wouldn’t work for an appetizer as long as you were going to be providing forks to your guests during appetizers.
    Hope you enjoy it,
