Pineapple-cheese-Ritz casserole--I've googled for recipes, but

they vary a lot.

Paula Deen's recipe calls for 6 tablespoons all-purpose flour.

Could I get away with using self-rising flour? that's all I usually buy.

1. In all my life I have never heard of such a dish!
Is this something that people eat normally? Is it a regional thing?

:wow:

I googled the recipe and I'm fascinated. Is it ooooozie when you serve it or more melty?

2. I knew you couldn't be a Southerner! :pals: People bring it a lot to

covered dish dinners. I'd say it's kind of melty with a bit of crunch. You have the crunch of the
pineapples and the crackers. It's really good, you have the sweet-salty flavors there.

3. New one on me, too.
I can't decide if it sounds like it would be good, or gross.

I guess I can try it. I have an out -- anything nasty goes to my chickens, they'll eat virtually ANYTHING (they love styrofoam!).

6. found this on a blog
The pineapple is extra sweet from being combined with the sugar, so it contrasts even more with the savoriness of the cheese. Then the cracker crumbs, which are layered throughout the casserole, absorb some of the pineapple juice and butter from the bottom and thicken the casserole, giving it some body. Under the surface, the texture is similar to a Ritz Mock Apple Pie, only with crushed pineapple instead of no fruit at all. However, those cracker crumbs stay nice and crunchy on top.

Some people serve this casserole for dessert, but its a great side dish for pork, especially something like a good Coca-Cola ham. With the last of the summers put-up green beans, creamed corn, Sister Schuberts rolls and potato salad.

4. never heard of it
Edited on Tue Nov-22-11 01:14 PM by grasswire
Is it considered a dessert? Or a side dish?

I'm gonna go look in my stash of regional southern cookbooks to see if it's there.

(should note that I had never heard of cooter pie either)

5. Self rising flour has small amts of baking powder and salt - see link below
http://southernfood.about.com/cs/breads/ht/self_rise_fl...

Since it calls for only 6 tbsp, the salt will be negligible - the baking powder may make it rise a bit more....

I've never used self rising flour!

8. No, I am one of those cooking geeks who go as scratch as possible!
Plus, I am a northerner - when we moved to Raleigh, the whole self-rising flour thing (as well as the huge canned pea and bean sections) threw us a bit!

But we couldn't find the canned brown bread!

11. I've seen it at the store. Never tried it.
Another thing that looks kind of scary:

12. Canned Brown Bread is a New England tradition!
B&M Baked Bean company - it is very moist, dark break with a flavor of molasses - has raisins - you heat it up and melt butter on it.

Many a family dinner was hot dogs, baked beans and brown bread when I was growing up!
