Kelly's Story

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.)

1 cup
unsalted butter, 2 sticks, softened
3 1/2
cups sugar
1 Tbl.
1 cup
2 (20 oz.)
cans crushed pineapple, drained well
1 cup
1/2 cup
chopped pecans
sliced de-crusted bread torn into small pieces

Directions Step-By-Step

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!

Dear Kelly, Thank you so much for posting your recipe. I made it during the holidays and I got a lot of compliments on this dish. I usually make a pineapple stuffing which is good. However yours was over the top good. Thx for sharing.

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

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.
