Sweet Pineapple Dressing with Craisins and Pecans

Kelly Williams


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.)

How to Make Sweet Pineapple Dressing with Craisins and Pecans


  1. 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!
