A potluck recipe from the Old South



Sometimes you don’t feel like cooking, like REALLY cooking, so you look around the cupboard to see what you’ve got.


A little of this, a little of that, and before you know it, an idea comes together.


Out of the hundreds of recipes on my blog, this is probably the easiest recipe I’ve ever made. It’s nothing fancy, but a surprising taste treat. 


Pineapple Casserole is a classic in the South. It’s got a lot going on in your mouth: the sweetness of the pineapple, the savoriness of the cheese, some crunch from the layer of crackers, a cheery sunny color and a unifying undertone of BUTTER! Say no more.


Pineapple Casserole



  • 2 20-oz. cans of pineapple chunks/tidbits in juice, drained
  • 1/3 cup flour
  • 1/2 cup light brown sugar
  • 2 cups finely shredded cheddar cheese


  • 40 Ritz crackers, crushed (or 1 full sleeve)
  • 1/2 cup butter, melted




  1. Preheat oven to 350° F.
  2. In a large mixing bowl, combine the pineapple, flour, brown sugar, and shredded cheese.
  3. Transfer the mixture to a 9×9″ baking dish.  You may also use a 9″ or 10″ pie dish.
  4. In a medium bowl, mix together the melted butter and crushed crackers until evenly coated.
  5. Sprinkle the cracker mixture over the top of the pineapple-cheese mixture.
  6. Bake for 30 minutes.
  7. Serve warm.
