Mom’s Pineapple Stuffing – Super Simple, Yummy, and Cheap!

I enjoyed the recipes I’ve been trying on BFS, so here’s another great one!

Commenter MikeS was kind enough to send in the following recipe for me to try out, and it was inexpensive, tasty, and by far the easiest recipe I’ve posted about so far!  🙂

Yum! This is a huge hit at Thanksgiving and Christmas with my family. Mom's Favorite Pineapple Stuffing is delicious and such a fun twist on a traditional recipe, to keep meals fun and change them up a bit. This recipe lists prices so it's nice to know it is a cheap side dish, too.

Mom’s Pineapple Stuffing

  • 1 cup sugar (I’m estimating that is costs about $0.40 at Kroger)
  • 1 stick of butter ($0.40 at Kroger)
  • 4 eggs ($0.40 at Kroger…I’m seeing a pattern, lol)
  • 5 slices white bread ($0.35 at Walmart)
  • 1 can (1lb 4oz) crushed pineapples, drained ($1.08 at Walmart)
  • Total cost was less than $3.75 or about $0.75 per serving depending on your personal serving size.

1.  Preheat oven to 350°F and grease ½ quart casserole dish (I used our 8″ x 8″ pan).

2.  In a bowl, cream together butter and sugar.

3.  Beat in the eggs one at a time.

4.  Then stir in the pineapple.

5.  Break bread slices into pieces, add to the pineapple mixture, and mix well.

6.  Transfer the mixture to the casserole dish.

7.  Bake for 1 hour (we baked for 75 minutes due to our specific electric oven), remove from oven, and enjoy!

MikeS said this goes really well with ham.  I personally ate it by itself 20 minutes out of the oven, then a few hours later as a dessert with my in-laws, and then I ate some of it cold for a lunch dessert the next day.  My in-laws loved it and I’m addicted.  It tastes like a combo of bread pudding and a pineapple upside down cake to me.

I’d have to say it would be a great side dish for any poultry or pig or even a delicious dessert by itself…I probably just wouldn’t serve it with cow.  🙂

Another great side would be my grandma’s sweet potatoes.  Or, if you are in a different mood, try some easy Cheesy Chicken Enchiladas!  You can find all of my recipes here.

As always, do you have any other recipe suggestions that a new cook like me could pull off – really easy?  How does this one sound to you?

  1. Mom usually has to make 2 of these for any family gathering as it never lasts. A good thing about it is you can make it up the night before and then just heat it up the day of.

    Really glad you liked it and I hope everyone else does too.

  2. Crystal – Sounds yummy! I will put it on my list of things to try and make when my mom is not staying with us and cooking every meal for me ;P I have a few goodies I can look up for you. I highly recommend http://www.cookingforengineers.com I find his recipes straightforward and easy to follow.

    MikeS – what about if I only have pineapple chunks? Do you think they will turn out well if I leave them as is? Or if I chop them up in the food processor?

  3. Julie, thanks for the recommendation! I’ll look into it if no one emails me something directly. Thanks again!

    PS I want to know what MikeS says, but my guess is that pineapple chunks would be fine if you food processor them a little. The general idea is that all the little chunks have to spread out so you don’t get a bite of just bread and sugar. 🙂

  4. Julie, I would agree with BFS. If you only have chunks, I would use a food processor on the a little. I think it helps with the texture.

    Enjoy and let me know how it turns out.

  5. Been making this exact recioe for years…..I always double it, and use 1/2 white bread and 1/2 cinnamon bread(PF works best). It is amazing with ham!
