Baked Pineapple

June 7, 2018Teresa

Baked Pineapple is as awesome as can be! This delightful southern  side dish is the perfect accompaniment to almost any meal. It’s certainly terrific for company or holiday dinners. It’s also incredibly easy to make. I usually have this recipe oven-ready in 5 minutes. No kidding. So if you need a recipe on the spur of the moment this one is fantastic.

Last month one of our neighbors had us over for dinner. Sherrill and Linda Stiles delighted us with the most amazing southern-style dinner. Linda served Amish Chicken and Noodles, Fried Green Beans, Glazed Carrots, Baked Pineapple, yeast rolls, Deviled Eggs (creole style), Favorite Fruit Salad, Boudin Balls (a Louisiana favorite) and an outrageous Oreo Cookie Dessert. We were in awe of all the tasty goodies Linda had prepared for us (and loved every single thing).

It’s not every day that we get invited out to dinner (and especially when I can’t bring anything). Usually the hostessing is on the other foot and John and I are the ones who host dinner parties. We felt pampered and spoiled by all of Linda’s delicacies. But the best thing about the dinner is that she gave me the recipes. 😮 Not only that, but I was fortunate enough to copy almost all of her favorite recipes – over 300. Most of them were recipes I’ve never seen in other cookbooks over the past several decades. Believe me I was in seventh heaven looking through her cookbook.

I’ve made her Amish Chicken and Noodles, Fried Green Beans, Favorite Fruit Salad and this Baked Pineapple many times since then. First I made it for our Friday night care group. We have two Brazilian-born gals in that group (now both US citizens). I begged them to give it a try. Both thought it was good even though it’s certainly not something they would normally eat. All the southerners in our group loved the Baked Pineapple.

I also made this several times when I took meals to folks who had babies or recovering from surgery. It’s just one of those casseroles everyone loves. Since it’s sweet, it’s almost like eating dessert. 🙂

This is a little different than the Pineapple Casserole recipes out there that use cheese. This recipe consists of crushed pineapple mixed with eggs, flour and sugar so that it’s almost like a custard or souffle when it bakes. It’s topped with lightly toasted Sourdough Bread cubes mixed with butter. The topping settles into the casserole while it bakes. It’s just divine.

Do you want a fabulous side dish for holiday menus like Mother’s Day, Father’s Day or even Thanksgiving or Christmas? Baked Pineapple will be a hit with everyone. No kidding.

Baked Pineapple is awesome.

I used these ingredients. I lightly toasted 2 large pieces of sourdough bread. If your bread isn’t this large, add another piece.

Bake at 350 for 30 minutes. All of my casseroles took 40-45 minutes to bake until set. Your oven may cook more quickly. If you enjoy pineapple this , uh side dish will have you licking your lips!

    Been making this since 1981 I was married. I got the recipe from my grandma in-law and she used a 151/2 can crushed pineapple , cup sugar, 2 eggs slice bread of any kind , can milk poured over the bread to make it easier to tear up in tiny pieces . Bake at 350 degrees for about 40 minutes

    This looks delicious! Having a party this weekend. Have you ever doubled the recipe? I was thinking of doubling it and using a 9×13 pan. Thoughts?
    Thank you!

      Hi, Lee Ann. I’m sure it will do fine. You may have to cook it closer to an hour to get it to set up properly. Cook it until it looks like the consistency of my pictures. I think your friends will love this recipe. 🙂 I have served it so many times and everyone raves over it.

      Hi, Abby. Yes and it’s absolutely delicious. So easy, too. I can whip this up in less than 10 minutes. While I used Sourdough bread (because it’s the only kind we buy besides GF bread) regular white or wheat bread can be used as well. Hope you enjoy it.
