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…..you 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,
