Pineapple and Cheese Casserole Recipe

What do you get when you put pineapple, crackers, and cheese in a casserole? A delicious, sweet, and salty dish that's sure to please even the pickiest of palettes. {Believe it or not!} This not-so-traditional casserole is a staple in our homes, especially for Spring and Summertime gatherings with our nearest and dearest. 

A Few Key Ingredients:  

  • Pineapple chunks – These sweet and tangy bites give the recipe its namesake.  
  • Ritz cracker crumbs – Golden and buttery cracker crumbs add an extra crunch to the casserole.  
  • Sharp cheddar cheese – The sharpness of cheddar cheese helps balance the sweet nature of this casserole.  

We love baking and serving this yummy casserole in our Signature White Ruffle Casserole Dish. If you want to change things up a bit, know that this recipe doesn’t necessarily need to be baked in a casserole dish – you can also serve it up in our Signature White Ruffle Pie Dish. If you’re entertaining a small number of friends, use our Signature White Ruffle Loaf Pan. Or, you’re feeling festive or simply want to add a pop of color to your spread, bake it in our Red Stripe Ruffle Loaf Pan. 

When transferring from oven to table, we make sure to put down a trivet to protect the surface from the hot pan or dish, and lay out a serving spoon or serving fork right next to it. If serving as an appetizer, set out a few salad plates, which are the perfect size for a portion of this casserole.
