A mixture of pineapple, flour, butter eggs and cinnamon. Excellent side dish with ham or pork roast. My in-laws are from Pennsylvania; this recipe is from some of the aunts who live there. A Christmas dinner must-have!

Ahhhh, the sweet goodness of this simple side dish. I took the advise and cut the sugar in half and it was one of the best items I've ever made. It was raved about for hours. I couldn't have picked a better side dish for breakfast or for dinner. A must try for any occasion! Read More

I made this with a ham and served it as a side dish. I found this way too sweet. It might be okay as a dessert...if you like warm shredded pineapple goo for dessert. Sorry we did not care for this. Read More

I have a recipe very similar to this which I enjoy serving with any meat entree. I never have any leftovers! My recipe calls for 4 scrambled eggs 1/2 cup sugar 20 oz. can crushed pineapple using only 1/2 of the juice 5 pieces of bread; tore into bits; use any bread my favorite has been oat. Mix all together in buttered baking dish with a few slices of butter on top of the mixture as well as some sprinkled sugar cover with foil bake at 350 for 45 minutes then remove cover and bake for 10-15 minutes more depending on how brown you want the topping to be.

This recipe is great with ham. I received many compliments on Easter Sunday for this dish. I enjoyed it as a leftover later too. It tasted nice even cold. It could be considered a dessert Read More

I made this dish and it turned out great. The taste was such a treat with ham. And this goes well with cornbread dressing also instead of cranberry sauce. I loved it and so did my guests. Read More

Excellent! Healthier when I replace sugar with Splenda and use whole wheat flour. Read More

My family loved this! I decided to use only 1/2 cup Splenda and it tasted wonderful. Plenty sweet. The cooking time was only about 40 minutes. I will probably omit the cinnamon next time because a pinch really doesn't add to the taste but it does detract from appearance. Oh My! This stuff is delicious cold straight from the refrigerator the next day! Read More
