Sweet and Savoury Cheesy Pineapple Casserole

Sweet and Savoury Cheesy Pineapple Casserole

Posted 2015-09-12 by finyfollow

I seem to be making a lot of sweet/savoury dishes lately and this one is great, as I ate it for sweets as well as an accompaniment for a meal! It could also be eaten as a casual meal, perhaps on weekends when you do not feel like cooking a complicated meal!

Pineapple always goes well with cheese however in this casserole, I have added some sugar as well giving it a lovely semi-sweet taste with the slight bitter-sweet taste of pineapple, and the added saltiness of the Ritz crackers.

Preparation Time: 10 minutes
Cooking Time: 25 minutes
Makes: 4 servings

Ingredients
215 g crushed pineapple
215 g pineapple pieces
¼ - ½ cup sugar
3 heaped tbsp self raising flour
1¼ cups strong flavoured grated cheese
1 cup Ritz Crackers, crushed
¼ cup butter, melted

Method
  • Preheat the oven to 160° fan forced.

  • Crush the Ritz biscuits either in a plastic bag or in a food processor or similar.


  • Drain the two different pineapples


  • Put them in a bowl with the sugar, flour and cheese.


  • Combine this carefully until it is well mixed.


  • Spray a small casserole dish with oil spray or butter, and spoon half of the mixture in.

  • Add half of the Ritz crumbs as a layer on top.


  • Repeat this process ending with the Ritz crumbs, and then add the melted butter on top of the crumbs.

  • Bake in the oven for about 20 minutes or until the top has turned a golden colour.


  • Leave standing for about five minutes, and then cut into squares or to your liking.
  • .

  • Serve as a main, accompaniment, or as a dessert with cream.
