Pineapple Casserole

I try to remember to keep a can of crushed pineapple around so I can make this yummyness if the mood strikes. The rest of the ingredients I almost always have on hand—how basic can you get! This makes a delicious dessert or even breakfast. I think this recipe has a tad too much sugar, it is really sweet, so depending on how you like your sweets you may want to cut back a little bit.

I hope I’m not sharing a secret family recipe. This is from my mother-in-law. Which is why I can’t cut the amount of sugar, because then it will not taste right to Mr. V and he might not eat it at all. And that would mean I’d eat it all. Hmmm …

Pineapple Casserole

Prep Time: 10 minutes

Cook Time: 1 hour

Total Time: 1 hour, 10 minutes

Yield: 6 servings


  • 1 stick butter (1/2 cup)
  • 1 c. sugar
  • 4 egg whites
  • 5 slices bread, cut or torn into small pieces
  • 20 oz. crushed pineapple


Preheat oven to 350 F. Grease a small casserole dish (1-2 qt). A medium-sized Corningware works well.

Cream butter and sugar together. Add egg whites and mix well. Stir in bread, then mix in pineapple. Pour into greased casserole and bake 1 hour on 350 F. Let cool slightly before digging in!

  1. I have seen this in a few cookbooks but never tried it. Maybe I should do it with the 8 cans of crushed pineapple I bought on clearance…

    (PS–thanks for the cheese stick tip!)

  2. I’m Canadian, and I have never heard of, eaten, or made anything like this before. I tried it and we loved it! Thank you so much for sharing this recipe. (I used brown sugar instead of white, and I think next time I might throw in a little coconut.)
