Scalloped Pineapple

wasn't sure where to put this. when my mom was in a memphis, tenn hospital we ate in the cafeteria. this dish was just so good. i asked the chef for recipe . took him awhile to pare it down for 8 servings. i make it for many occasions. christmas is one of them.
1/2 cup butter, melted
4 cups fresh bread cubs (about 6 slices)
3 eggs
1 cup sugar
1/2 cup evaporated milk
1 20 oz. crushed pineapple undrained.

combine butter and bread cubes, mix well set aside. combine eggs, sugar and milk. beat with electric mixer just til blended. add bread cubes mixture and pineapple, stirring well. pour into a lightly greased 2 quart baking dish. bake, uncovered at 350 for an hour. i check in at 45 min. 6 to 8 servings.

enjoy
babe

Now how often do you eat at a hospital cafeteria and wind up asking the chef for the recipe?! Just goes to show that sometimes the most yummy foods show up when you least expect it. This looks good! I'll have to try it. Thanks for sharing.

Babe, I'm so glad you posted this recipe. I've been making a similar recipe for years, and I agree it's just delicious. The first time I made it as a side for a holiday ham and it was gone in a flash. Now I double the recipe and it's still gone long before the other sides. I just checked my recipe and I use half the amount of sugar, so it's good that way too.
Believe me folks, this is really good.

It's bread pudding with a can of crushed pineapple.

You could add most anything else in place of the pineapple; apples, peaches, cherries, tangerines, nectarines, fresh plums, etc.

Personally, I would also add a tsp. of vanilla to the basic recipe, but that's just me.

That's what I was thinking, except the vanilla. I will probably give this a try as a dessert. We're not big on sweet sides at my house.

Bucky, I'm not so sure about using fresh pineapple for this. Pineapple does weird nasty things to protein, and eggs are protein. I'd hate for you to ruin this. Check out this thread for my nightmare with fresh pineapple.

Starting to cook and experiment
