My Father’s Sister’s Pineapple Pudding

Here’s one from my childhood. I would look forward to Christmas dinners at my Aunt Bootsie’s home every year … mostly for this side dish! (Yes, it’s meant to be a side dish, not dessert … and is wonderful served that way!)

1/2 c.     sugar
1            2-lb. can crushed pineapple in juice (these days, it comes in 1lb. 4oz. cans, so I use 1 2/3 cans)
3            large eggs
5            slices firm bread
1            stick butter, cut into 32 pieces

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Beat eggs and sugar together in a nice big bowl. Cut bread into cubes and add with undrained pineapple and butter. Mix well. Turn into greased 8 x 11 (or thereabouts) baking dish and bake for about 50 minutes, until lightly browned and bubbling. Serve warm as a side dish.
