When I make pineapple casserole, I double the amount —because guests frequently request a second helping for dessert! Sweet-tangy fruit is even better combined with savory cheddar cheese and buttery cracker crumb topping. —Catherine Ann Goza, Leland, North Carolina

  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1/3 cup all-purpose flour
  • 2 cups shredded cheddar cheese

  • 2-1/2 cups crushed Ritz crackers (about 60 crackers)
  • 1/4 cup butter, melted


  1. Preheat oven to 350°. In a large bowl, mix sugar and flour; stir in cheese. Stir in both cans of drained pineapple.
