I make this regularly for any office function. Actually, now they just tell me to bring the pineapple cheese casserole. I prefer it with pineapple tidbits if you can get them. Its great with chucks but the tidbits are just the perfect size not so bulky. Yes, you can use the low fat crackers but try it the wheat Ritz or any knock off brand of wheat ritz type crackers. It is even better! You wont be sorry you made it. Read More

Doctored it up a bit // added 2 cans of the chunk and 1 can of crushed pineapple and it came out awesome. kept the juice w/the crushed but didn't use the chunked juice. I also used an entire sleeve of the ritz crackers as it gave much better look and then I didn't waste any crackers by getting stale. I dabbed butter ontop and baked as directed. It went over wonderful w/the additional of pineapple & crackers. Read More

I've had this recipe for years and it is one of my favorites....great with breakfast, brunch, lunch or dinner! I like to use pineapple tidbits instead of chunks. I usuallly don't tell people what's in it until after they've tasted it (the combination of ingredients seems kind of bizzare!) I recently took this to a gathering and 12 people out of 14 asked for the recipe! Read More

WOW! This was OUTSTANDING! I've had this type of casserole before and really loved it but I've never made one myself. I halved the recipe for just my husband and I. He went back for seconds! I had to put the oven at 375 because I was making a chicken dish with this and it worked out just fine. I just took it out when it was browned and beautiful. This is a keeper. Thanks for the recipe.

I made this recipe for Easter and served it with ham. Everyone loved it. I added extra crackers and combined pineapple sugar and flour then layered with cheese then the crackers. It's great to make ahead too. Just wait and add the cracker topping right before putting it in the oven. Read More

SUPERB SIDE DISH WITH A GLAZED HAM My family has been making this recipe for years and it is always a huge hit. Like a previous review, The sweet and savory flavor of this dish pairs beautifully with a ham. It would also be great addition to a brunch buffet. I agree with some of the earlier reviews that the tidbits are much easier to eat. I mix the pineapples with the dry ingredients and add a splash of pineapple juice to keep it moist. We have always used Ritz crackers but I love the idea of the Cheez-its and will be trying that soon! I finely crush the crackers to the consistency of bread crumbs which elevates the presentation. Don't skimp on the toppings and use as much as you need to make a 1/2 inch topping. This is good old fashioned comfort food at it's very best!!!! Read More

I made this the other night and it was AWESOME!!! The only thing I will change next time will be to add more pineapple as it was not enough in my opinion. But still great! Read More
