Pineapple Ham Casserole

Living in Hawaii, I wanted to share this recipe which features pineapple. It's our most important fruit crop. —Marsha Fleming, Kula, Hawaii

    Very bland. Family didn't like, nor did I. We ended up throwing it away. Too many noodles called for and the pan size listed is not correct - it should be in a 9 x 13 casserole dish. Family told me never to make this again.

    Very odd flavor and not anything close to what I expected it to be.

    Oh I noticed that Jude. Hard to rate a recipe if it is basically changed a lot

    I also altered this recipe. Instead of noodles, I used diced potatoes. I added 1 teaspoon of dry mustard, 1 small chopped onion, cut the milk in about half, and added more pepper. I topped it with the Ritz cracker topping given earlier and it was delicious! (I also used the tidbits instead of crushed) I added 15 minutes to the cooking time for the potatoes and put the topping on 30 minutes prior to it being done. Trust me and try it this way!

    Bland and Worcestershire gave it an odd flavor. Had to toss it, no one would eat past two bites. Notice the five star reviewer completely changed the recipe.

    This was not the hit I thought it would be. I kept tasting it as I was making it and I knew it was bland, so I kept trying to *spice* it up so family would like it better. I won't be making this again.

    I have always loved pineapple-Ritz cracker casserole so I couldn't resist using the same topping from that wonderful dish here in this recipe instead of breadcrumbs. Also, I skipped the milk and noodles, opting for a thicker, creamier casserole. Other changes, I used 20 oz can pineapple tidbits, added chopped onion to the butter and celery, skipped the worchestershire sauce. It is absolutely wonderful and something I will definitely make again. Here is the topping: Melt 6 TBSP butter, add 1 cup crushed Ritz crackers, 1 TBSP sugar, 6TBSP of the pineapple juice from can (I just poured in all the juice left over and it worked).

    I added about 1 tsp dry mustard, more Worcestershire sauce and about half a cup of the pineapple juice from the can. Definitely needed that little flavor boost. Good recipe, my 6 year-old loved it. May try some teriyaki next time.
