Pineapple Casserole

Title picture

The first time I had a pineapple casserole was one of the many family get together’s we have at the lake each summer. I got the recipe but never made it because no one else in my family would eat it. Strange, uh?

This past Sunday, we had a time of church fellowship. I’m the fellowship coordinator and I decided we would do casserole potluck for this fellowship time. 

Had I known that two other people were going to bring a pineapple casserole, I would have taken my Snow Capped Pie. All’s good! I get to share a new recipe with you! 

Whatcha Need


  • 3/4 cup sugar
  • 6 tablespoons flour
  • 6 tablespoons pineapple juice
  • 2 (20 oz) cans pineapple tidbits
  • 1/2 cup butter melted
  • 2 cups shredded cheddar cheese


  • 2 tablespoons 
  • 1 cup Ritz crackers, crushed

Putting It All Together


Drain pineapple and save some juice.


I know my Whatcha Need list say tidbits, but I was using pineapple I had on hand and mine was crushed. It works too, but it is juicier and you need to squeeze the extra juice out of it. 

IMG_9975 In a bowl add sugar,

IMG_9978 flour, 

IMG_9980and juice.

IMG_9982 Stir it all together. Don’t worry if it is lumpy. 

IMG_9987 Add the pineapple, 

IMG_9991 butter, 

IMG_9995and cheese. 

You probably notice some extra flour in the picture where I added to pineapple. I added one more tablespoon because of using the crushed pineapple. It was just looking a little too juicy for me. 

IMG_9996 Stir it all together. 

IMG_0003Pout it into a lightly greased, 2 quart baking dish and bake at 300 degrees for 20 minutes. 

While it is baking, 

IMG_0004 melt 2 tablespoons butter in a bowl in the microwave. 

IMG_0006 Crush your crackers and add to butter. 

IMG_0008 Mix together well. Using a fork is a lot less messy. 

IMG_0009 When the 20 minutes are up, take the casserole out of the oven, increase the heat to 350 degrees. 

IMG_0009 Sprinkle cracker mixture over the top and put back into oven for another 20 minutes. 

IMG_0016 Enjoy! 

I did make this the night before our fellowship. I warmed it in the oven, lowest heat for about 30-45 minutes. I was so busy getting everything else ready I totally forgot about it, so I really don’t know how long I warmed it.

  1. I love this dish! I have never made it, but my sister in law always makes it for the Thanksgiving meal. Thank you for sharing the recipe. It’s a shame no one in your family likes it besides you…but then again, there’s more for you to eat! :)

  2. I’m with you, I love that dish too but no one else in my family cares for it either!
