Pineapple Cheese Casserole

This is a great side dish to serve with Ham. The pineapple flavor just seems to go with Ham. It is easy to do. And makes a big hit at a covered dish dinner.

Ingredients:

  • 1 cup sugar
  • 6 Tbsp. plain flour
  • 2 cups sharp grated cheddar cheese
  • 2 15 oz cans pineapple chunks in own juice
  • Ad
  • 1 1/2 cups crushed Ritz crackers ( one stack)
  • 1 stick butter, melted

Directions:

Spray a 9x13 inch pyrex dish with butter-flavored vegetable spray. Drain pineapple, and reserve the juice.

Mix sugar and flour together. Add the grated cheese. Combine. Then add the drained Pineapple chunks. Put this in the prepared pyrex dish.

Put the Ritz Crackers in a ziplock bag, and crush them. Sprinkle the Cracker Crumbs over the pineapple mixture. Pour the melted butter over the crushed cracker mixture.

Bake 35 to 40 minutes @350 degree F oven until the cracker crumbs are browned. Serve while still warm.

Note: Splenda can be used instead of sugar in this recipe. Also, you can add a tablespoonful of the reserved pineapple juice to the dish before baking it. Sometimes it appears to be too dry.

When I take this to a covered dish dinner, I always double the recipe! Everyone seems to like it, and it's gone before I get to it.

FYI, you may want to use more butter to mix with the crackers.

The name did put me off, I actually only read the recipe because it sounded so weird.

But actually after reading the ingredients it might be good! (12/28/2007)

When I read the recipe I thought it must be awful. I tried this dish at a church dinner. I was in love. I never dreamed this combo would taste so good. I make it from time to time. My hubbie and sons don't care for it. You either love it or Hate it. I think it's great. This recipe has made me take another look at recipes that I thought might be awful. (12/28/2007)
