I’d never eaten Pineapple Casserole until I met my sweet, sweet mother-in-law and boy, had I been missing a treat! I love pineapple, most fruits in fact, and this recipe combines tasty sweet and savory ingredients that truly please the palate!
INGREDIENTS: 2-20 oz. cans of pineapple chunks, 1 cup sugar, 5 tsp. self-rising flour, 1 sleeve Ritz crackers, 1 stick butter
DIRECTIONS: Drain pineapple chunks well. Place pineapple on bottom of 9x13 glass casserole dish. Mix sugar and flour together. Sprinkle sugar/flour mixture over pineapple chunks. Crush sleeve of crackers (I do this by beating the heck out of it!). Sprinkle crushed cracker crumbs over top of pineapple. Melt butter and pour it on top of the crushed cracker layer. Bake at 350 degrees for 25-30 minutes.
Every time I’ve made one of these casseroles, folks have raved about it and I never have much in the way of leftovers! It’s fun to serve something a little unexpected and fun. This dish food for holiday meals to summery lunches and everything in between! Not to mention you’re getting at least one daily serving of fruit! Ha! Hope you enjoy trying it!
Hugs & Yums, Laurie
