Kelly's notes for this recipe:
My all-time favorite side dish! We have this for every holiday and gathering. Goes fantastic with roast turkey or chicken, baked ham, or even beef roast! There are a few of these recipes out there, but I make mine different with the addition of vanilla, craisins and pecans. Delicious!!! Best served warm, not hot. (photo from images/bing.)

In large bowl, cream butter, sugar and vanilla. Add eggs, milk and pineapple, mix well. Stir in "craisins" and pecans. Fold in bread. Pour into greased 13x9-inch glass baking dish, do not smooth flat--leave tiny peaks. Bake, uncovered, in 350ºF oven for 45-55 minutes until caramelized and peaks are tinged brown. I serve this warm, not hot. Goes great with turkey, ham, chicken, beef and pork as a side dish.

Leftovers even go great re-heated with vanilla or butter pecan ice cream!

Thank you for sharing! Prior to my sister's death she made this often (with her ham)and I never got the recipe from her. I feel sure this is the same recipe. It is wonderful.

I just notice you have craisins in your recipe and my sister's recipe did not. The addition of the craisins would be good.
