Have you ever read a recipe and think that there is no way it could be good?  This is definitely one of those.  I first tried this dish years ago when a co-worker brought it to a Christmas dinner and was hooked.  There are several different variations of this on the internet, but not this exact recipe so I don’t know where it originated before my co-worker had it.  If you like pineapple, give this a shot and I think you will be pleasantly surprised.  I could eat the whole pan!


3/4 cup granulated sugar

3 tbsp. all purpose flour

20 oz. pineapple chunks, drained & reserve 3 tbsp. juice

10 oz. crushed pineapple, drained

1/2 cup shredded cheddar cheese (Shred it yourself.  None of the pre-shredded non-melting cheese.)

1 cup Ritz cracker crumbs

1/2 stick butter


Preheat oven to 350 degrees and spray an 8 inch baking dish with non-stick spray.  Combine the sugar, flour, and reserved juice in a medium saucepan.  Cook over low heat until the sugar melts.


Add the drained pineapple and cheese; stir to combine.  Pour this into the prepared baking dish.  Melt the butter and stir in the cracker crumbs.  Sprinkle the butter/crumb mixture on top of the pineapple.  Bake for 20-25 minutes or until bubbly.
