One of the casseroles I made for our Christmas Eve dinner and served again for our Christmas dinner was a pineapple casserole. I got the recipe from Maxine and it's simple, quick, and wonderfully delicious. I've blogged about it before, but I'm giving you the recipe again in case you missed it the first time. You really should try this some time. It's so very good. I halved the recipe when I made ours, but the recipe below is for the whole thing. My mise en place is halved.
Maxine's Pineapple Casserole 
 2 16 ounce cans pineapple chunks, drained
  6 TB flour 
1 cup sugar 
2 cups cheddar cheese, grated  
1 stick butter, melted  
1 stick Ritz crackers, crushed 
(Don't crush to uniform crumbs. 
Leave different sized crumbs - large/medium/small.)
  Put pineapple in 9 x 13 inch baking dish. 
  Mix sugar and flour.
 Sprinkle evenly over pineapple.  
Layer cheese, then crushed crackers over top.
  Pour melted butter over dish.  
Bake at 350 for 30 minutes.
I poured the drained pineapple into a nine-inch square buttered baking dish.
Mix the flour and sugar.
Sprinkle evenly over pineapple chunks.
Grated cheddar cheese on top.
Crumbly mixture of Ritz crackers.
Pour melted butter over top.
And bake 30 minutes at 350.
This is excellent with a ham. Heck. I'd love this with ice cream. Please make it some time. You'll be glad you did. Plus, I'll bet that your first time will certainly not be your last.

I don't see why not!
Thanks for the suggestion.

I completely forgot about this that my Mom used to make (60 years ago!) it is weird and it is wonderful! Thanks for the memories!
