Pineapple Casserole~ Simple Saturday with girlichef

Although it a seemingly odd combination…pineapple and cheese come together beautifully in this recipe from my friend Danielle. I enjoy it warm…with a big scoop of vanilla ice cream! Simple and tasty…what simple meal or drink ideas did you make this week?
Pineapple Casserole
from Danielle of Cooking for my Peace of Mind

1 can (20 oz)pineapple chunks, drained
1 can (20 oz)crushed pineapple, drained
5 Tbs. flour
1 c. sugar
1 1/2 – 2 cups sharp cheddar cheese, shredded
1 1/2 cups Ritz cracker crumbs
1 stick butter (1/2 c.), melted

Preheat your oven to 350 degrees F. Grease a small casserole dish (I used an 8×8). Combine the pineapple, sugar, flour and cheese in a large bowl. Pour into the casserole dish. If you haven’t yet smashed up your Ritz, do it now and then spread the cracker crumbs over the mixture and drizzle the melted butter over the top. Bake for ~30 minutes, or until golden.

I just made my first (of what I assume will be many) Simple Saturday submission! I had planned on posting an older recipe, but the mish-mash of stuff my son and I had last night ended up being too surprisingly tastey not to share 🙂
