Ham makes an appearance on our table at the holidays throughout the year.
Thanksgiving? Turkey, sure, but if we are having a big gathering, definitely ham too.
Christmas? You guessed it.
One of the best parts of serving ham at so many holidays is it gives me an excuse to whip up this delicious scalloped pineapple.
My family gets more excited about this side dish than almost any other and I can’t blame them.
With its sweet tang, this recipe is an instant winner.
To make this you’ll need:
- Butter– Go for salted butter here and make sure you let it soften on the counter before you use it for this recipe.
- Sugar– Granulated
- Eggs– Large eggs, beaten.
- Pineapple– Go for canned crushed pineapple in heavy syrup. Skip fresh pineapple or the canned kind packed in juice for this. Be sure to drain the can before using.
- Lemon juice – Fresh or bottled is fine.
- Bread cubes– Use white bread to make the cubes and remove the crust.
How to Make
Making this is so easy!
Beat them together until they are fluffy and light.
Once the butter and sugar are light and fluffy, at the eggs one at a time, whipping well in between each egg.
Then, fold in the lemon juice and crushed pineapple with a spatula until they are evenly incorporated.
Next, fold in the bread cubes until they are combined.
Pour the pineapple mixture into a sprayed 2 quart casserole dish and spread it out evenly with a spatula.
Then bake uncovered at 350 for 40-45 minutes or until the top is golden brown.
Serve warm and enjoy!
Store leftovers covered in the fridge for up to 4 days.
Reheat in a warm oven until heated through or microwave until warm.
Tips and Tricks
- You can substitute unsalted butter if that’s all you have, but make sure you add about 1/4 tsp of salt to balance the sweetness.
- Make sure to use pineapples in heavy syrup for the best flavor. The extra sugar will help the top of the casserole brown nicely as it caramelizes.
- Be sure to remove the crusts from the bread prior to cubing it.
- Spray the casserole dish liberally with nonstick spray prior to pouring in the pineapple mix.
