Pineapple-Cheddar Casserole

  Let me go ahead and warn you that this is one of the BEST casseroles I've ever had!

OK...unless you've had this, I know what you're thinking...
"Pineapples and cheese?! Ewww!"
Am I right?

Well, you couldn't be more wrong!  Honestly, I thought the same thing when I was asked to try it!

It's amazing and I'm not sure why!  One of the greatest things about it is how easy it is, and if you've been following my blog, you know I love easy recipes!  Really, the hardest part is measuring out the few ingredients it takes to make it. 

Pineapple Cheddar Casserole

2 cans pineapple, drained with liquid reserved - one can pineapple chunks and one can tidbits
3/4 cup sugar
1/3 cup and 1 tsp flour
4tbsp pineapple juice
2 cups freshly grated cheddar cheese (please don't use pre-shredded, it has a lot of preservatives)
2/3 cup melted butter
1 sleeve crushed Ritz crackers

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

1. Mix the first 6 ingredients in a bowl until all flour and sugar have been completely mixed together.

2. Lightly butter a 11x7 casserole dish and pour your mixture in.  Make sure the pineapple chunks and tidbits are spread around evenly. 

3. Spread crushed crackers on the top. At this point you have 2 options, you can cover and refrigerate or you can go ahead and bake.

4. Bake for 40 minutes, uncovered, or until golden brown on top.


This is delicious!  It is a little sweet, a little cheesy and a lot of yummy!
