{Recipe} Pineapple Bake

Happy day after Christmas! How did you spend the day yesterday? My day was great but exhausting - started cooking at 6:30 am (turkey + other stuff that needs to bake + 1 oven = looooong cooking time!!), Bryan's mom, grandmother, and sister came over later in the morning and spent the afternoon with us, then I went up to MD to visit my girls from high school while they were all in town and didn't get back till 1:30 in the morning. I was planning on going to work today, but I was way too tired!

Today I thought I'd share my family recipe for pineapple bake. This is my absolute favorite dish that we always have for Thanksgiving and Christmas. I could skip the turkey, the ham, the stuffing... just give me my pineapple bake, and I'll be happy!

I was rushing around like maniac trying to get everything ready, so I just snapped a quick pic of the finished product with my phone. It's not a very pretty dish, but it's seriously delicious if you're a pineapple lover.



Ingredients:
  • 5-6 slices bread
  • 1 stick butter
  • 1 can (20 oz) pineapple tidbits in juice (don’t drain)
  • 3 eggs
  • 3 tablespoons flour
  • ½ cup sugar

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Cut the bread into approximately 1" by 1" cubes. Melt the butter in a pan, then add the bread. Keep stirring and cook until the bread starts to turn light brown. 

Combine the whole can of pineapple & juice, the eggs, flour, and sugar in a mixing bowl. Mix until everything is combined (I stick it in my KichenAid for a minute), then pour into a casserole dish. Top with the bread and gently fold it into the pineapple mixture.

My mom's instructions for the cooking time are pretty vague: bake 45-60 minutes but check after 30 minutes. I've made this a couple times now and have found that 45 minutes usually seems about right for my oven. It helps to use a glass casserole dish so you can check the bottom - it's done when the bottom starts to turn light brown.

  1. Write more, thats all I have to say. Literally, it seems
    as though you relied on the video to make your point.
    You clearly know what youre talking about, why throw away your intelligence on just posting videos
    to your blog when you could be giving us something enlightening
