Mention pineapple-cheese casserole to anyone who didn't grow up in the South, and they might think you're pulling their leg. But folks who grew up eating this sweet-and-savory side dish know what they're talking about. In the same spirit as sweet potato casserole or cranberry sauce, the recipe below is a Thanksgiving side that brings just the right amount of sweetness to an otherwise savory dish.
This casserole couldn't be easier to pull together. You'll combine canned pineapple, cheddar cheese and buttery Ritz crackers, and bake the dish until browned and bubbly. Serve it alongside classic Thanksgiving fixings or simply with a roast chicken for a super tasty weeknight supper.
