Yummy Recipe Thursday! (Southern Pineapple Casserole)

Hello again friendly food lovers and welcome to another Yummy Recipe Thursday. So it may be a day late but I’ve got a recipe for you today for something truly amazing. I remember the first time I saw this recipe; I was confused at first by the combination of ingredients. Cheese and Pineapple? Really? Of course it didn’t sound absolutely appalling and I’m always adventurous when it comes to food anyway so I gave it a try and it’s almost hard to describe in words just how incredible this casserole is. Salty, sweet, and savory are three things that should be combined more often. I later found out that this dish is often times served at Thanksgiving and Easter which makes a lot of sense since pineapple and ham, something served on both of those holidays, go together so well. With Easter coming up this weekend, I highly recommend you give this a try. Just be prepared to make this every Easter, and maybe other holidays, because it will be highly requested by your friends and family. As always, please feel free to leave comments below and be sure to follow @RecipeBlogger on Twitter, if you aren’t already, so you don’t miss a single new post.

Southern Pineapple Casserole

1. Preheat the oven to 350°F (175°C); drain the pineapple chunks, reserving 1/4 cup of the juice.
2. In a small bowl mix together the crushed crackers and melted butter; set aside.
3. In a large bowl combine the pineapple chunks, crushed pineapple, flour, sugar, cheddar cheese, and reserved pineapple juice; pour the mixture into a 1 1/2 quart casserole dish.

5. Sprinkle the cracker crumb mixture over the top of the pineapple mixture.
6. Bake an additional 20 minutes or until the cracker crust is a nice golden brown color.
