Pineapple Au Gratin Recipe

My mother, Lola Allen, has made this recipe for as long as I can remember. Most all of the recipes we serve came from Mom—a terrific cook who raised nine children.—Linda Fulkerson, Elizabethtown, Kentucky
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 15 min. Bake: 50 min. YIELD:16-20 servings

Ingredients

  • 2 cups self-rising flour
  • 2 cups sugar
  • 3 cans (20 ounces each) unsweetened pineapple chunks
  • 1 cup (4 ounces) shredded cheddar cheese
  • 1/2 cup butter, melted
  • 70 butter-flavored crackers, crushed

Directions

  • 1. In a large bowl, combine flour and sugar. Drain pineapple, reserving 1-1/2 cups juice. Add juice to flour mixture and mix well. Stir in the pineapple and cheese. Pour into a greased 13-in. x 9-in. baking pan.
  • 2. Cover and bake at 350° for 30 minutes. Uncover and stir; bake 10 minutes longer. Combine melted butter and cracker crumbs; sprinkle over pineapple mixture. Return to the oven for 10-15 minutes or until a knife inserted near the center comes out clean. Yield: 16-20 servings.
Editor's Note: As a substitute for each cup of self-rising flour, place 1-1/2 teaspoons baking powder and 1/2 teaspoon salt in a measuring cup. Add all-purpose flour to measure 1 cup.
