Very good but definately use 1/2 cup sugar or else it tastes like a cake. For a lighter version you could also drop down to 3/4 cup of cheese, it still tastes super. Would be a really nice addition to a brunch and also tastes good cold! Read More

Very easy BUT VERY SWEET. Less than 1/2 the sugar would be enough. No wonder a kid will eat it. It was practically a dessert, not a side dish in my opinion at all. Read More

I have tried a recipe exactly like this one, only instead of Saltines I used Ritz crackers. Definitely makes a difference. Read More

I made this to go with our Easter ham. It got about a 50-50 favorable to unfavorable response at the table. I liked it and thought it made a good side dish especially since my ham wasn't glazed with anything sweet. The only change I made was to add an extra tablespoon of flour to the sugar (I was worried it would come out watery) and I used crushed Club crackers for topping since I had some stale ones in the cupboard. I cut each of the pineapple chunks in half becuase it seemed as though there wasn't much to go around I think the size called "tidbits" instead of "chunks" would have been the best way to go. I liked the sweet/savory combination of the pineapple and the cheese/cracker topping. I do think I could have cut the sugar back to 3/4 cup it was plenty sweet. Read More

This was good served with ham and the people at the dinner table who had a sweet tooth really liked it. I think crushed pineapple for the entire dish might have worked out better. I wasn't crazy about the big chunks. I halved the sugar and the sweetness was just right. Any more sugar would have been cloying. I substituted Ritz crackers for the saltines and they were good in this dish. Read More

This is one of my all-time favorites dating back to my childhood. My mother always made it with cheese crackers (Better Cheddars) instead of the Ritz crackers for an extra cheesey crunch. Read More
