Pineapple Casserole

Has anyone heard of a recipe like this? Pineapples are only $2.99 compared to $5.99 regular and sure would like to experiment with it. Just heard about someone having this for Easter dinner and sounded different. We all love pineapple. Thanks

This is the recipe that I have. I can't remember ever making it but that doesn't mean I didn't

PINEAPPLE CASSEROLE

INGREDIENTS:

1 large can Pineapple chunks - reserve juice
cup sugar
3 Tbs. flour
1 stick butter or margarine or butter - melted
3 Tbs. pineapple juice
1 cup shredded cheddar cheese
1 cups finely crushed Ritz Crackers

DIRECTIONS:

Drain pineapple making sure to reserve juice. Mix flour and sugar together, add 3 Tbs. of reserved juice making a paste. Mix this paste, the pineapple and the cheese. Combine melted margarine and cracker crumbs, sprinkle over pineapple mixture. Bake 20 Minutes at 350 degrees.

You could just buy some pineapple juice so you'll have that juice they want you to save. Fresh golden pineapples would be soooooo much better!!! If a tad sour you can adjust sugar.

ITK, this is the recipe I use for pineapple casserole. It is very close to kitchenelf's.

1(16oz.)can chunk pineapple
1/2C. sugar
3Tbsp. flour
1C. grated cheddar cheese
1 stick margarine
Ritz cracker crumbs

Spread pineapple with juice in casserole dish. Mix sugar & flour & sprinkle over pineapple. Cover with grated cheese. Top with cracker crumbs. Melt margarine & pour evenly over crackers. Bake in 350F oven for 15-20 minutes until top is brown & bubbly.

It's not a good idea to make this ahead of time. I've tried it & for some reason it dosen't thicken if you do. I usually mix the flour & sugar in a zip lock bag & have the cracker crumbs ready in another bag so I can assemble it when I'm ready to bake it. I agree with kitchenelf about the fresh pineapple being better!!

Pineapple Casserole

crewsk, since you are fixing for Easter you must like it. Thanks for the tip. Seems everything has to be done same day if it is good. Unlesss it calls for things to be marinated. Thanks. Never would have thought of this combination would taste good.

Just thought since I won't be having lamb for Easter this would be perfect to compliment ham. I forgot what everyone else was having and can't remember. Thanks again. Seems Ritz crackers make a difference in lot of recipes. Wonder why?

ITK, I'm having ham for Easter & it does go very well with it. Hubby likes to use his ham & coat it in any of the "juice" from the casserole.

Bucky, that explains why I can sit & eat a box of Ritz in a day!!
