(Here is an oldie-but-goodie that is pretty popular in our families! It’s a great dish for Thanksgiving, Christmas, Easter, or just because you like it!!)
Well the Thanksgiving holiday has come and gone and I’m trying to get my Christmas Spirit in full swing.
I’ve actually been on hiatus for a couple of days (in case you didn’t notice). I wasn’t feeling well and honestly, I’m just tired. I did manage to work on my Christmas decorating a little, but I’m nowhere near finished.
We spent Thanksgiving with the Super Trooper’s family. There are several “littles” and that always makes for interesting conversation. One of my cutie patootie nieces is three and she was very sad that Aunt Beth had finished off the last of the “stuff with the pineapples.” Who knew a three-year-old would like Pineapple Au Gratin?!? There is only one thing an aunt can do in this situation, so I ran to the store and bought the ingredients for another dish. I delivered it to her yesterday, but she was in the middle of a plate of spaghetti (from the looks of her, that could’ve been a literal statement!) and didn’t think they would taste very good together.
Since my three-year-old niece and my father-in-law (who is a little picky sometimes) love this dish, I thought it would be worth sharing!
Pineapple Au Gratin
3/4 cup of sugar
4 Tablespoons of flour
1 large can of pineapple chunks or crushed pineapple
1 cup shredded cheddar cheese
1 sleeve crushed Ritz crackers
1 stick of butter
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Combine the sugar and flour.
Add pineapple (don’t drain) and cheese to the sugar and flour. Stir until combined and place in a casserole dish.
Melt butter in a separate pan and stir in crackers. Let brown slightly. Cover the pineapple mixture with the crackers.
Bake for 30 minutes and enjoy!
