This is a fairly well known dish in the South and I have made it many times. My tweaks... Use pineapple tibits, the chunks are a little big and the crushed is not quite right either. I always use extra sharp cheddar. It's always great. Always use the brand name Ritz crackers. The topping is a significant part of the flavor combo and you can tell the difference with store brand crackers. I have taken this to potlucks but it's not very eye catching and may not get eaten because it is hard to identify on sight. One reviewer suggested marischino cherries. I love that idea and it adds the needed color and you know right away it's not scalloped potatoes! It is sweet so not a side dish that you would make often, but really good for a change of pace.


I have used this recipe for years and it is always a hit. For Thanksgiving/Christmas I add dried cranberries to the pineapple mixture and sprinkle chopped pecans on top of the cracker topping. This one is a must on my holiday table!


This delightful dish has become a favorite with my family! It's sweet, rich and not exactly healthy but a great treat. Makes a unique potluck idea: there won't be duplicates!! Good idea to mix first flour & butter, then add sugar & juice, then pineapples and last fold in cheese - nice smooth texture this way. (Though I've also mixed it all right in the casserole for a super quick dish! Never had a problem that way either!) By the way, it only serves four in this house! ;) I would double it to share.
