This pineapple casserole is unlike any other. If you haven't tried the combination of cheddar cheese and pineapple before, now is a great time to do so (you're going to love it!). Oh, and if you're wondering when to set out our Cheesy Baked Pineapple, it can be served as a side dish or dessert.

What You'll Need

  • 2 (20-ounce) cans pineapple chunks, drained
  • 2 cups (8 ounces) shredded sharp cheddar cheese
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 3 tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • 2 cups coarsely crushed butter-flavored crackers
  • 1/4 cup (1/2 stick) butter, melted

What to Do

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Coat a 9- x 13-inch baking dish with cooking spray. 
  2. In a large bowl, combine pineapple, cheese, sugar, and flour; toss until evenly coated. Place in baking dish.
  3. In a small bowl, combine crushed crackers and butter; mix well, then sprinkle over casserole.
  4. Bake 30 to 35 minutes, or until heated through and topping is golden.

Hmm, this is a strange combination, to say the least...I mean I've heard of cream cheese and pineapple in a dip and could see how that might work, but cheddar and pineapple baked together in one dish? It sounds like it's kinda like a cobbler type dish and I have had apple pie with cheddar before and it changed my I suppose this could work. I'm really loving all of the interesting recipes on this site...what a difference from the norm.

Tried it, Liked it. I halved the recipe since I wasn't sure about it, there was only four of us so it was plenty for a side. So different then any recipe I've tried yet we liked it a lot! Super easy and quick to throw together. I also used mild cheddar.

Interesting. When I think about pineapple I do not think that cheese would be a compliment or vise versa. Sometimes what you think will not be good together will be just the opposite. I have company planned for a visit soon and because I would hate to throw this away if I do not like it, perhaps some of my family will think it is the bees knees.

What an interesting flavor combination. I can see by the posts that it is a well received dish. I guess I will have to try it for myself to see just how good it is.

Make this every Easter. Easy and wonderful!

I've made this recipe before and it was delicious! I'm not sure I would substitute anything else for the butter flavored crackers because it is already rather sweet and could be used easily for a dessert. I served it with ham and it was just the right touch!

What do you think? instead of crackers, use graham cracckers or cap'n crunch. both or either. both good and tasty!

THIS is one recipe that's GOT to be good! I'll make it and take it to my cooks at work to taste and hope it will be a recipe they will be using. Sounds sooooo good!

This is a variation of Paula Deen's Pineapple Casserole recipe - they cut the amount of sugar, flour, & crackers in 1/2 - otherwise the same ingredients. Paula's is better and there's a picture with the recipe on her website. I have made Paula's recipe dozens of times since first trying it. It's a real hit at family gatherings. One caution, do not substitute crushed pineapple - it really needs the chunks or tidbit size. Enjoy :-)

You are so right. I found Paula's recipe and followed her instructions to make a side for today's Easter dinner. It was amazing! Almost like a cobbler. This will definitely be one of my go-to recipes.

How come there is NO picture for some of these recepies? I would like to try this,BUT if it doesnt have a picture to the recipe then I wont try it. Sorry. but I think it would be better to have pics to all of your wonderful recipes.
