Pineapple Casserole

We love pineapple in my house, fresh, canned, in cake, anyway we can get it.

But our absolute favorite is in this casserole.

And it so easy.

And with the holidays coming up, it goes perfect with ham.

In fact we look for reasons to have ham or pork just so we can have this casserole.

And I’d never even heard of this until a cousin brought it to a pot luck about 15 years ago.

And I had to have the recipe.

And now you can have it too.

Pine Apple Casserole

2 cans (20 ounces) pineapple, crushed or chunk, we like the chunk
5 Tablespoons flour
1 cup sugar
1 stack (sleeve) ritz crackers
1 stick butter or margarine, melted
1 1/2 cup shredded cheddar cheese

This is also kid friendly. Especially if you let them have the juice from the pineapple!

Drain your pineapple and set juice aside for ham or child, I split it between the two.

Place crackers in plastic bag and hand to child to crush.

Once crushed, add melted butter to bag

combine, then add all your cheese

and let your child combine again

Now place your drained pineapple directly into your casserole dish. The recipe says to lightly grease the casserole dish and mix in a separate bowl but I’m all about less dishes and it doesn’t make a difference in the end, so pineapple directly into dish.

now add your sugar and flour (you can reduce the sugar by half but we like it all)

now stir with a spoon to combine well

it will look dry but stir until a wonderful syrup forms

Smooth out pineapple as best you can

and have your child place the cracker topping all over the top

use it all

Now bake in a preheated 350 degree oven for about 30 minutes, until golden brown on the top

This recipe can also be halved and made in a loaf pan.

  1. yumm!!! this looks so easy, and we love pineapple!

  2. What a fun casserole! Obviously one for dessert with a little ice cream on top maybe? :)

  3. What a great helper you have. This looks so wonderful. I know my husband would love this. We have pumpkin fried rice on our menu this week. Come over and check it out. And be sure to come visit us on Friday and register for a really wonderful give away from the Shabby Apple.

  4. What a neat and unusual recipe, I would never think to put them together but at the same time I can see this being really good.

    I will have to try it.

    Thanks for linking up to Newlyweds Recipe Linky!

  5. @Heather, this can become addicting!

    @mjskit, we eat it as a side dish but could also be a dessert. I’ve had the leftovers as a snack with ice cream and it’s even better that way!

    @Carolina, anytime I can have my kids in the kitchen I try to, at least I know when they are grown and gone, they won’t starve!

  6. now I have to go get a ham so I can try this ;)

  7. Such an interesting idea! I love the sweet and savory components and that it’s so easy! I’m pinning this to try! I’m fairly new to your blog and am loving browsing through it (and pinning haha)! :-)

  8. I just found your website. You have some great recipes! A few years ago I tried this dish and it is one of my favorites!!
