yes, it sounds strange. however, this is really a gem. my grandma has made this for me before, and it is really good. i was skeptical at first....pineapple, cheese, and ritz crackers?? but i put my doubt aside and gave it a shot. this is true southern food.
I make this all the time for Hawaiian potlucks. It is always a hit! The sharper the cheddar the better!
Delicious. However, I cut the sugar in half, and that was perfect for us.
Yuk. I made this because my husband LOVES pineapple and the odd combination of ingredients intrigued me. But neither of us liked it at all. Not enough to even finish one serving.
My 14 yr old daughter made this and we eyed it skeptically as it went in the oven. Boy was it sure delicous...the kids just dug into it...and mom too. LOL we served it with dinner, but had a hard time deciding if it should have been a desert instead. Will for sure make it again.
Thank you for posting this! This is one of my all-time favorite recipes given to me years ago by a coworker in TN and flaky me lost the recipe! I thought I would have to suffer withdrawls until I found your posting! This is SUCH a great dish- I make it every year as part of our Thanksgiving meal and I swear I could eat the entire thing all at once! It's DEE-LISH!! Three thumbs up!!
Oh my goodness. This is so good. I made this for Easter dinner and it went wonderfully with our ham. The combo of flavors is fantastic. DD was a bit leary of this but upon trying found it to be great. I halved this recipe but am wishing we didn't. Thank you so much for this really yummy casserole. So good.
I received a recipe similar from my MOI. It calls for 1/4 cup of the pineapple juice too and instead of mixing the melted butter in with the cracker crumbs, she crushes the crackers over the top and then places little pads of butter (an entire stick) on top of the crushed crackers. I think it makes it crispier. But it's to die for and everyone that tries it when I make it thinks so too!
This is my second time making this and I wanted to rate it with 5 stars! My teenage boys LOVE LOVE LOVE this and have asked for it several times since I first made it. I only made an 8 serving recipe, so everything was cut in half. Perfect texture and taste. Thanks for sharing!
Great success in our last dinner. I only used 1/2 cup sugar and everybody agreed it was enough. Also used only 1 "tube" of crackers. Thanks for sharing.
