The Best Pineapple Casserole
A savory and sweet southern casserole. Only 6 ingredients–Pineapple, butter, sugar, eggs, bread, and milk. Perfect for a side dish but could easily be a dessert. This is truly the Best Pineapple Casserole you will ever taste.
I’ve been making this casserole for at least 20 years now. A friend introduced me to this casserole shortly after I married. Pineapple casserole is really delicious, and after the first bite, you will be hooked.
I began making this casserole to serve with ham. Pineapple and ham always go together and are a great combination. But honestly, it goes with just about anything and everything. I have served this at cookouts with hamburgers, at Thanksgiving with turkey, and at Christmas with ham. My family expects this casserole at every holiday meal. I made this the other night–during the week– and served it with chicken crescent rolls 🙂 and did not have the first complaint from my family. 🙂
The combination of ingredients may sound strange, but I promise they all mesh together into one delicious casserole.
Pineapple casserole is made to serve as a side dish, but honestly, it could be eaten as a dessert. 🙂 As a matter of fact, I reheated a small bowl for dessert last night. 🙂
With only a few simple ingredients, you can have this casserole mixed and in the oven in no time. Everything is mixed by hand–no need to drag out the mixer. Just mix everything together in one bowl, dump into a casserole dish, slide into the oven. Easy!!
I’ve made this casserole for church socials, holiday gatherings, and just as a side dish during the week. It will not disappoint you or your guests.
