Roundup and Link Love – Thanksgiving 2008 Edition

eattt fanksgivingI am so ready for some turkey and dressing, cranberry sauce and pineapple casserole. Never heard of pineapple casserole? You don’t know what you’re missing! My wife makes this recipe and it is ALWAYS the hit of any potluck we go to. Give it a try:

Here’s the recipe

Grease a 9×13 casserole dish. Dump in two 15 ounce cans of pineapple chunks (drain first). In a separate bowl mix one cup of sugar with 5 tablespoons of all purpose flour. Sprinkle this over the pineapple. Mix up one and a half cups each of mozzarella and cheddar cheeses (total of three cups) and sprinkle over the pineapple/flour/sugar mix. Rough crush one sleeve of Ritz crackers and sprinkle over the cheese, then drizzle one stick of melted, unsalted butter over it all. Bake at 350 degrees for 30 minutes. Allow to cool for about 15 minutes and enjoy! This is one of my family’s all-time favorite recipes and it came from my wife’s grandmother.

Here are some awesome links to check out while you’re waiting for your pineapple casserole to bake and cool:
