Food Hussy Recipe: Mom's Pineapple Stuffing

A few years back I went home for the holidays and my Mom made something I'd never had before - Pineapple Stuffing. I wasn't a big fan of stuffing - but this stuff was so different! It was almost like bread pudding.

Pineapple Stuffing is very easy to make but since it has eggs - I rarely eat it. Over the holidays we went to someone's house for a meal so it was the perfect time to make it!

You cream the butter & sugar - I realized at this point that I didn't have a mixer! But then I remembered I had just gotten one of those hand blenders and sure enough - it had a mixer attachment! I wasn't sure it would be powerful enough - but as you can see - it definitely was! After creaming the butter & sugar - you add eggs one at a time.

Then you stir in a can of crushed pineapple. Fold in bread cubes (5 slices) and there you go! Then you bake it for an hour and you're done! I sprinkled a little brown sugar on top before I popped it in the oven just for fun too! Yum!

And there you go - a piping hot dish of Pineapple Stuffing! It's sweet and fluffy and a great side - almost like the sweet potatoes would be. I really enjoyed this and can't wait for another reason to make it again! Easter isn't too far off!

  3. Definitely sounds different & I like different !
    Should the bread be fresh,day old or toasted ?

    1. I used some bread that was a little old - I used Sara Lee Artesano cuz it's big and thick and hearty but still white bread. I do NOT use crunchy/toasted/super stale bread for this - i want it to be soft for the texture. The Sara Lee bread is great because it's thick - but I maybe have had it for a week or so. Let me know if you have any other questions or what you think of it. It's so good - I promise!!!
