2 (15 ounce) cans
pineapple chunks, drained
shredded sharp Cheddar cheese
buttery round crackers, crumbled
I make this regularly for any office function. Actually, now they just tell me to bring the pineapple cheese casserole. I prefer it with pineapple tidbits if you can get them. Its great with chucks but the tidbits are just the perfect size not so bulky. Yes, you can use the low fat crackers but try it the wheat Ritz or any knock off brand of wheat ritz type crackers. It is even better! You wont be sorry you made it.
to sweet dont make this again
Doctored it up a bit // added 2 cans of the chunk and 1 can of crushed pineapple and it came out awesome. kept the juice w/the crushed but didn't use the chunked juice. I also used an entire sleeve of the ritz crackers as it gave much better look and then I didn't waste any crackers by getting stale. I dabbed butter ontop and baked as directed. It went over wonderful w/the additional of pineapple & crackers.
I liked this-served it with chicken.
WOW! This was OUTSTANDING! I've had this type of casserole before and really loved it, but I've never made one myself. I halved the recipe for just my husband and I. He went back for seconds! I had to put the oven at 375 because I was making a chicken dish with this and it worked out just fine. I just took it out when it was browned and beautiful. This is a keeper. Thanks for the recipe.
I've had this recipe for years and it is one of my favorites....great with breakfast, brunch, lunch or dinner! I like to use pineapple tidbits instead of chunks. I usuallly don't tell people what's in it until after they've tasted it (the combination of ingredients seems kind of bizzare!) I recently took this to a gathering and 12 people out of 14 asked for the recipe!
This is an absolutely delicious side dish,
especially with ham. It's good hot or cold.
It's great to tote along to a pot luck.
I made this the other night and it was AWESOME!!! The only thing I will change next time will be to add more pineapple as it was not enough in my opinion. But still great!
