{Family Favorite} Baked Pineapple

We’re lost in boxes at my apartment, so I apologize for the lack of posts here lately. We move in less than 2 weeks and I don’t feel prepared at all. I have no idea how we’ve accumulated so much stuff since we last moved (2 years ago), but we have. The last thing I want to see is a box and packing tape!

In lieu of grocery shopping, we’re trying to use up things that we have in the freezer, refrigerator and pantry. The other night I made one of my favorite side dishes.

I just love those family recipes that have been part of my life since I was a little girl. These days you can get easily recipes from the internet, but back in the day it was either word of mouth from a friend or family member, or from a cookbook. My Grandmother used to make this Baked Pineapple dish. It’s so easy to make, yet it’s so flavorful!

Let me share it with you

But first let me tell you that it’s not particularly on the healthy side.

After all, there’s a stick of butter in there.

And no, Paula Deen has nothing to do with this!

But it’s oh so good!

And the leftovers are great for breakfast the next morning!

INGREDIENTS

  • 1 (16 oz) can of crushed pineapple (I used Libby’s No Sugar Added)
  • 4 eggs, beaten
  • 3/4 cup sugar
  • 1 stick of butter
  • 6 slices of white bread, cubed

 INSTRUCTIONS

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.

First, crack the 4 eggs into a large mixing bowl and whisk them (or beat them with a fork) until they are a bit foamy.

Open your can of crushed pineapple.

Add in the can of crushed pineapple and the sugar.

Beat everything together until it’s incorporated.

Pour it into a greased 8×8 baking dish.

Cut up the bread into cubes.

Melt the stick of butter. Stir in the bread cubes,
making sure to coat all sides of the bread cubes with the butter.

Sprinkle on top of the pineapple mixture.

Bake for 35-40 minutes. The top should be golden brown!

Let it set for about 5 minutes before serving.
