Southern Pineapple Casserole


1 cup sugar
1/3 cup all-purpose flour
2 cups shredded cheddar cheese
1 can (20 ounces) unsweetened crushed pineapple, drained
1 can (20 ounces) unsweetened pineapple chunks, drained
2-1/2 cups crushed Ritz crackers (about 60 crackers)
1/4 cup butter, melted


1Preheat oven to 350°. In a large bowl, mix sugar and flour; stir in cheese. Stir in both cans of drained pineapple.
2Transfer to a greased 1-1/2-qt. baking dish. In a small bowl, mix crackers and butter. Sprinkle over top. Bake, uncovered, 30-40 minutes or until topping is brown and cheese is melted. Let stand 10 minutes.

Helpful Hints:

When I make pineapple casserole, I double the amount —because guests frequently request a second helping for dessert! Sweet-tangy fruit is even better combined with savory cheddar cheese and buttery cracker crumb
