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.
