My family has been making this Scalloped Pineapple recipe for years. You wouldn't think that cheese would go well with pineapple, but this recipe is hard to beat. Warning: This recipe is definitely NOT on the Weight Watchers menu!
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Grease a medium-size casserole dish.
In a large bowl, stir together sugar and flour. Gradually stir in the cheese. Add the pineapple chunks and stir until well combined. Pour mixture into the casserole dish.
In another medium bowl, combine the cracker crumbs, melted butter, and reserved juice, stirring until blended. Spread the crumb mixture on top of pineapple mixture.
Bake for 25 to 30 minutes until golden brown. Serves 8.
My daughter loves this scalloped pineapple casserole and so does my husband which is amazing because he is not a big fan of warm pineapple in anything, especially Hawaiian pizza. Try it with the Kahlua Baked Ham or another favorite ham recipe.
It occurred to me as I was writing this page that many folks shy away from buying fresh pineapple because they don't know how to cut them. Although the recipe for pineapple casserole calls for canned pineapple, the recipes below, especially the cocktails, can be made with fresh pineapple.
Once you get the hang of it, you will see that it is quite easy to cut a pineapple and you will save money by doing it yourself whenever possible.
Although this person does not follow my exact technique, it is pretty close. She cuts off way more pineapple than is necessary but her way gets the job done too.
