Happy Friday! Today I’m sharing another favorite recipe. But before I do, I’m just going to say this once again… I’m not a foodie. I don’t like to cook. Sometimes I don’t even like to eat. So the recipes you see on my blog are so absolutely fabulous that I feel compelled to come out of my non-domestic shell and spread the recipe love. Here we go…
This recipe came from my BFF’s mother-in-Law. The first time I heard about this recipe, I was less than thrilled to give it a try. I mean, cheese and pineapple together? Really? And hot?? But I put my big girl pants on and gave it a try.
OH. MY. GOODNESS!!! It’s unbelievably delicious! I personally would eat this for a meal. I need nothing else.
This casserole is a staple for Thanksgiving, Christmas and Easter dinners. But don’t wait for a holiday to try it. It’s an anytime dish. You will thank me.
(I don’t have a picture of the casserole. There are pictures of the web if you want to see what it looks like.)
3 (15 ounce) cans pineapple chunks
2 1/2 cups shredded Cheddar cheese
8 tablespoons pineapple juice
8 tablespoons all-purpose flour
1 cup white sugar
30 buttery round crackers, crushed (I use Ritz)
1/2 cup butter, sliced
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
In a large bowl combine pineapple chunks, cheese, pineapple juice, flour and sugar. Spoon into a 9×13 inch baking dish.
Top with crushed crackers and butter slices.
Bake in preheated oven for 30 minutes.
