Pineapple Casserole

This casserole always used to appear on the table a day or two after Easter, with a platter of leftover ham slices.

I think it is a nice addition to a brunch. It can be made the night before and popped in the oven to bake while the coffee is brewing and the ham is sizzling.

I hope you will give it a try!

Pineapple Casserole
½ cup butter
½ cup granulated sugar
3 eggs
1 15 ounce can of crushed pineapple or pineapple tidbits, including juice
4 cups of day old bread cubes
2 cups sharp shredded cheddar cheese
Cream butter and sugar, beat in eggs one at a time. Fold in pineapple and juice. Gently fold in bread cubes. Place half of the mixture in a buttered casserole, sprinkle on half of the cheese. Add remaining mixture and top with remaining cheese. Let stand for at least 30 minutes or refrigerate overnight . Preheat oven to 350 degrees and bake for 45 minutes to an hour.

I had this at the Thanksgiving luncheon at my partner's work. I thought that it was a weird dish, but tried it anyway. It was delicious!

I need to have a dinner party with weird, but tasty foods. My grandmother's lime jello salad with pineapple, mayonnaise, cream cheese and whipped cream will be there, I love that stuff.

A couple of years ago we had a cookout using recipes from the late 50's and early 60's that were odd and relied heavily on processed foods. Sort of a better living through chemistry theme. Everyone dressed the part and it was a fun inexpensive party with lots of awful food!

Went to a Halloween party with a similar theme, I brought the lime jello thingy, and a chiffon cake. They were both a hit! Everyone was reluctant to try the lime jello salad, but by the end of the party it was gone!

This is truly a remarkable recipe Bea, and it's often requested. The first time I made it many years ago it was hard to believe how good it was, and now it's a family favorite. I refrigerate it overnight, as I think it really does wonders for the texture. Yumm yumm yumm.....thanks for the reminder.

We use a similar recipe that includes walnuts. I think ours uses sour cream instead of cream cheese, and its all blended together and set in a ring mold. We all called it seabreeze salad. I just know that it's an absolute favorite of everyone who has tried it.
