Awesome dish!!!! This is an A plus & easy no fail recipe that I have been making for many years. It goes perfectly with ham & is my son's #1 request for family get-togethers no matter the occasion or menu. It can be make the day before (unbaked). I now use Panko crumbs on top for a real crunch & cut way down on the sugar to about 1/2 cup. Also, Splenda works well. Try it!!

This was good but I was not as impressed with it as i wanted to be.

VERY GOOD! Was the hit of a recent family gathering. I will say that it is pretty sweet so you could cut back on the sugar if you wanted. The butter and cracking topping was very buttery so you could probably do the same with the butter.

I got this recipe from a friend a couple years ago. It's a big hit at pot lucks, and it tastes great!

This was perfect! Yum-a-licious! I cut the sugar to 3/4 c. and will probably cut it back to 1/2 c. next time. I will also cut the butter and see where I land with it. There was so much, it pooled in the dish.

As a born and bred Southerner I've enjoyed this authentic dish at every gathering of southerners I've ever attended from the time I was a very small child. Some variations I've seen included 1 cup of sweetened coconut, a can of drained Mandarin orange slices, chopped pecans, a small jar of maraschino cherries drained and cut in half, and a half bag of mini marshmallows. I've seen it served at everything from Sunday family dinners to dinner on the grounds at churches to family reunions to funerals and weddings to neighborhood potlucks and it is ALWAYS one of the first dishes to disappear. That many Southerners just can't be wrong. You should try this. This base recipe is the same at every occasion ENJOY!

This is a very tasty side dish. My husband actually liked it. I only had one problem, the cheese wouldn't melt even after I heated it up the next day. I followed the receipe exactly except for cutting it in half and using less sugar. Other pineapple casserole I have had, the cheese looked melted. What did I do wrong?

Holy nommers! Per suggestions, I cut the sugar to 1/2 cup and I used 1 stick of butter instead of a full cup and this was amazing. I also ran into issues with the cheese not melting. I may try grating my own cheese next time or using smaller shreds.
