I've had several questions/requests regarding pineapple casserole. I first tasted this delightful dish at a BUNKO night....Sharon H. made it. WOOHOO....it was a hit with me. So, I decided to use my family as a nuclear...ur, uh, see how they liked it. It was a HIT with dear hubby....and if HE likes it, it doesn't matter whether the kiddos like it or not.....I'll make it again. I only made 1/2 the recipe and he ate the WHOLE thing.
I know, it needs a better name.....pineapple and casserole should NEVER be used together if you are trying to get someone to try something NEW.
I use http://www.allrecipes.com/ when I want to find a recipe. I look for the ones that have the most reviews....MAKE SURE YOU READ THE REVIEWS because people often make changes to the original recipe....just like this one....I reduced the sugar to 1/2 cup from 1 cup based on the reviews.
You might want to try it the ORIGINAL way first then maybe try it w/ some of the changes in the reviews. I don't like it when people actually post so many changes that it really isn't the original recipe....why don't they just post a whole new recipe?
3 (15 ounce) cans pineapple chunks
2 1/2 cups shredded Cheddar cheese
8 tablespoons pineapple juice
8 tablespoons all-purpose flour
1/2 cup white sugar
30 buttery round crackers, crushed (Ritz-type)
1/2 cup butter, sliced
Preheat oven to 350 degrees
In a large bowl combine pineapple chunks, cheese, pineapple juice, flour and sugar. Spoon into a 9x13 inch baking dish. Top with crushed crackers and butter slices.
Bake in preheated oven for 30 minutes.
This is great served w/ chicken or ham as the main course.
