Aunt Alice’s Pineapple Casserole
Maybe you are like my friend Lauren Ashworth. She’s a planner and a Pinterester and oh-my-goodness her food looks amazing. Like this one time she made Rice Krispy Treats in the shape of candy corn. Seriously.
Or maybe you are like me and Thanksgiving is one day away and you better come up with something NOW because you volunteered a dish and quickly forgot.
Either way, this casserole is all you ever wanted. Hearty, sweet, buttery…
Yes, Aunt Alice’s Pineapple Casserole is all of those things and more. Because, to make this dish the absolute perfect creation–it is also easy and cheap.
1/4-1/2 cup sugar
3 tablespoons flour
1 20 ounce pineapple tidbits or chunks (tidbits better)
drained but save juice
1 cup shredded cheddar -your preference
1/2 cup ritz cracker crumbled
1/4 cup butter or margarine
Combine sugar, flour, and 3 tablespoons of juice, add cheese and pineapple—mix
Pour into greased 13 x 9 casserole.
mix butter and ritz and top
Bake 30 minutes 350 degrees
And behold: Pineapple-y perfection. Let’s not discuss calories. Just eat the stuff and start writing your New Year’s Resolution.
It’s worth it.
