A Side Dish for Easter--Pineapple Casserole

Easter is just around the corner, April 8.  Is everyone busy preparing their Easter menu?  Family get to gathers means the return of favorite foods and recipes which are often only prepared for special occasions.  For my family a favorite is Pineapple Casserole.  This casserole is simple, tasty and easy to prepare.  I made it the other day and AppleJack asked, "why don't you prepare this more often."

Pineapple Casserole

1 (20 oz) can crushed pineapple (drain and save juice)
3 tablespoons flour
1/2 cup sugar
3 tablespoons pineapple juice
1 cup grated cheddar cheese
1/2 cup crushed Ritz crackers
1/4 cup melted butter

Preheat over to 300 degrees
Mix pineapple, flour, sugar, pineapple juice and grated cheese together and put in 8 x 8 inch greased pan
Mix Ritz crackers and butter and sprinkle on top
Bake for 20 to 25 minutes.

Simple, easy and delicious.  I served this dish with a pork loin roast.  AppleJack says "it's the perfect combination of foods."
