Pineapple Casserole

I thought I'd give this low-fat recipe a try.  It's very similar to a Pineapple Casserole recipe Larry's mom gave me years ago - just lighter. It was quite tasty! Larry had seconds!  I will definitely make this again! I've also pasted my mother-in-law's recipe below! It is buttery and very delicious!

Baked Pineapple Squares

Baked Pineapple Squares 

I cut this recipe in half and baked it in an 8x8 pan.


2 (20 ounce) cans pineapple tidbits, drained
1/2 cup sugar
1/2 cup flour
2 cups sharp shredded cheddar (I used 2%.)
2 cups Ritz Cracker Crumbs (I used reduced fat.)
All natural vegetable spray (I used Parkay Spray.)

Spray 9 x 13 inch baking dish with vegetable spray. Place drained pineapple in baking dish. Mix shredded cheese, flour and sugar together. Sprinkle over pineapple. Crush Ritz crackers. Put 2 cups in bowl and spray with vegetable spray, toss and spray until crackers are coated. Sprinkle over mixture.

Preheat oven to 325 degrees. Bake 30 minutes covered with aluminum foil. Remove foil and allow crackers to brown a bit. Cool a few minutes and cut into squares. This is also "spoonable!"
Number of Servings: 12

Here's a repost of the Pineapple Casserole:

This pineapple casserole recipe was given to me by my mother-in-law many years ago. 
I make it a lot during the holiday. It's great with ham!
