This recipe for Pineapple Casserole is a family favorite.

This Pineapple Casserole with pineapple, mandarin oranges, coconut, cheese and pecans is one of my favorite dishes.  This is supposed to be a side dish but I can eat this for dessert anytime. I had it for breakfast this morning!  When I make this dish I cannot leave it alone.  This is a wonderful dish for Easter, great on a buffet and everyone loves it.

Pineapple Casserole

1 (20 ounce) can crushed pineapple, drained (save 1/4 cup juice)

1 (15 ounce) can mandarin oranges, drained (You can substitute another 20 ounce can of pineapple chunks or cherries, peaches or whatever fruit you like)

1/2 cup white granulated sugar

6 tablespoons all-purpose flour

1 cup shredded coconut (Optional)

2 cups shredded cheddar cheese

1/4 cup pineapple juice from the crushed pineapple above

1 stick butter or margarine or 8 tablespoons or 1/2 cup, melted

40 to 50 Ritz crackers, crushed

1 cup pecans or walnuts (Optional)

In a large mixing bowl combine the crushed pineapple, mandarin oranges, sugar, flour, coconut, shredded cheese and pineapple juice.  Mix well.  Spray a 2 quart baking dish with cooking spray and spread pineapple mixture into the dish.  Melt the butter and mix with the crushed Ritz crackers.  Sprinkle on top of the pineapple. Add pecans on top.  Bake in preheated 350 degree oven 30 to 35 minutes until brown on top. Makes 6 to 8 servings. This is a wonderful dish to serve with ham or any kind of pork and is good served both hot or cold.  Enjoy!
