My mother in law made this for Thanksgiving this past year. if you EVER would've told me that pineapples + cheese = yummy, I would swear you were talking me into trying something terrible.... BUT .... I would be sooooo wrong. This is a yummy dish and super easy and quick! Great for gatherings but I still haven't determined if it should be labeled as a dessert or not - don't be scared ! Try it!
- 1 cup sugar
- 6 tablespoons flour
- 2 cups shredded sharp cheddar cheese
- 2 (20 ounce) cans pineapple chunks, drained (reserve 6 tablespoons of the pineapple juice)
- Dash of salt
- 1 cup Ritz cracker crumbs
- ½ cup butter, melted
- 6 tablespoons of reserved pineapple juice from draining the pineapple
- Dash of salt
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
Grease a medium-sized casserole dish with butter.
In a large bowl, stir together the sugar and flour and a dash of salt (that means less than half a teaspoon).
Add the cheese and stir it into the sugar/flour mix.
Add the drained pineapple chunks and stir until well-combined.
Pour the mixture into the prepared casserole dish.
In another bowl, combine the cracker crumbs, melted butter, and the 6 tablespoons of pineapple juice that you kept when you drained the pineapples.
Spread the crumb mixture evenly over the top of the pineapple mixture.
Bake for 35 – 30 minutes or until golden brown.
