Pineapple Casserole

Teresa

Okay, can I go on record and state that this Pineapple Casserole is probably one of my most favorite side dishes ever? Truly, this amazing casserole is awesome. It’s southern-style food to its core. The combination of pineapple, sharp cheddar cheese and Ritz cracker crumbs absolutely rocks. Yes, I love this casserole and devour large portions of it whenever I serve it!

From the first time I sunk my teeth into this mouthwatering casserole decades ago, I’ve loved Pineapple Casserole. Our church cook used to serve this for Wednesday night suppers especially when she made it with ham. Oh my!

When we were hosting a Friday night Bible study from a former church, one of the gals used to bring this scrumptious dish. I asked her to make it often. It’s not only wonderful served with ham, it’s great with any kind of main dish. Finally, I asked for the recipe. She texted it to me with very little instructions, but thankfully, I was able to decipher and figure out how to put it together.

I’ve made Pineapple Casserole several times for company. I ask them to try at least one bite. Without exception, everyone loves this amazing side dish. No lie! The first time I made it, I had several couples over and one who was a diabetic. I told him everything else I made that night he could eat, but NOT the Pineapple Casserole! I served it with Grilled Chicken, my famous Deviled Eggs, Bacon-Tomato Salad, Garlic Smashed Cauliflower and Spicy Creamed Corn.

The second time I made it for another group of company. Many went back for seconds. I served it with a Pot Roast Dinner and Baked Tomatoes Romano. Everyone else brought other sides. But everyone was amazed at the way the flavors blended. I can’t explain it but the combination is so incredibly mouthwatering, I could eat a dinner of just Pineapple Casserole!

I even had some left over to give to neighbors across the street when they moved in around the same time. They loved it along with all the other goodies I send at the time. Seriously, this deep-south side dish is so spectacular that I recommend it for any kind of family gathering or company dinner. I usually dare people to try it without telling them what it is. Once they have a bite, they’re truly hooked! No kidding.

Try Pineapple Casserole for your next special occasion dinner, like birthdays or anniversaries, Mother’s Day or Father’s Day (long past, I know). But certainly put it on your menu for Thanksgiving and Christmas this year. This side dish uses only 6 ingredients. It’s soooooo easy to whip up and it’s absolutely perfect for family gatherings. And everyone will be so glad you served it. Trust me. It’s delicious.

Place two cans of chunk pineapple in a mixing bowl. Don’t drain ANY of the pineapple. Use all of it plus all of the juice. Some cans have more juice than others, but use it all!
