Pineapple Casserole

There are a lot of versions of the Pineapple Casserole on the web.  Most of them have Cheddar Cheese and Ritz crackers as ingredients.  This recipe does not include those two ingredients.

When I first got this recipe, I thought surely that it was a Southern recipe, even though the family member who gave me the recipe is from Grand Rapids.

My daughter usually makes this for our holiday dinners.   It makes a wonderful, slightly sweet  and delicious side dish for Thanksgiving, Christmas and Easter dinners.  It goes especially well with Ham.

We associate the pineapple  with Hawaii.  But the pineapple is actually native to South America and was introduced to Hawaii by early European Explorers.  Try this Pineapple Casserole recipe, your family is sure to love it.
