'Tis The Season... feast with friends! Thought it might be fun to create a blogger virtual feast. We could each post a favorite recipe sometime over the next 7 days, or tell about a favorite purchased food. An example of the latter would be the cinnamon scones I like to buy at Acme. They come in two sizes; I prefer the big ones because the little ones are too sweet.

Joe T. over at Freudian Slips must have read my mind, because he has already posted a tempting recipe.

How 'bout it, folks? Here's one of my favorites to get you started:

Pineapple Bread Casserole

1/2 cup butter or margarine
3/4 cup sugar
4 eggs
1 can (13.5 ounce) crushed pineapple
5 slices bread, cubed

Cream butter and sugar; add eggs and beat until well combined. Add pineapple (I drain the pineapple and reserve the liquid in case a little extra moisture is needed); fold in bread cubes. Turn into greased 1.5 quart casserole. Bake, uncovered, at 350 degrees for 25 minutes. Yield: 8 servings.

This recipe works as a side dish to serve with ham (skip the pineapple sauce) or as a dessert. We call it pineapple stuffing or pineapple bread pudding, depending on the use.

Just a note: a similar recipe from my mom calls for a 20 ounce can of crushed pineapple, well-drained.
