Cheesy Pineapple Casserole


I make this regularly for any office function. Actually, now they just tell me to bring the pineapple cheese casserole. I prefer it with pineapple tidbits if you can get them. It’s great with chucks but the tidbits are just the perfect sizes not so bulky. Yes, you can use the low-fat crackers but try it the wheat Ritz or any knock off brand of wheat ritz type crackers. It is even better! You won’t be sorry you made it.

I’ve had this recipe for years and it is one of my favorites….great with breakfast, brunch, lunch or dinner! I like to use pineapple tidbits instead of chunks. I usually don’t tell people what’s in it until after they’ve tasted it (the combination of ingredients seems kind of bizarre!) I recently took this to a gathering and 12 people out of 14 asked for the recipe!

WOW! This was OUTSTANDING! I’ve had this type of casserole before and really loved it, but I’ve never made one myself. I halved the recipe for just my husband and I. He went back for seconds! I had to put the oven at 375 because I was making a chicken dish with this and it worked out just fine. I just took it out when it was browned and beautiful. This is a keeper.

I made this recipe for Easter and served it with ham. Everyone loved it. I added extra crackers and combined pineapple, sugar and flour, then layered with cheese, then the crackers. It’s great to make ahead too. Just wait and add the cracker topping right before putting it in the oven.

I made this the other night and it was AWESOME!!! The only thing I will change next time will be to add more pineapple as it was not enough in my opinion. But still great!

I finely crush the crackers to the consistency of bread crumbs which elevates the presentation. Don’t skimp on the toppings and use as much as you need to make a 1/2 inch topping. This is good old fashioned comfort food at it’s very best!!!!
