Pineapple Souffle is the perfect complement to your holiday ham, pork chops or barbecue! It’s quick and easy to make and can be served as a side dish, or dessert. Technically, it isn’t a souffle, so don’t panic!
Pineapple Souffle is a delicious side dish that pairs well with ham, turkey or barbeque. The sweetness of the pineapple contrasts with the saltiness of the meat resulting in a flavor-match made in heaven!
I first had this pineapple dish at Thanksgiving one year when my dear friend brought this fabulous holiday side dish! She brought it slightly warm, and when I removed the foil from her serving dish, I was amazed at how beautiful and scrumptious it looked! It enticed 16 guests to try a bite and the reviews were amazing! I was so thankful to have such a thoughtful friend bring this unique side dish to my Thanksgiving table that year…and I serve it ever since!
This “faux” souffle consists of bread, butter, eggs, pineapple,and sugar. I use pineapple from the can-diced is easiest. Since this is technically a casserole and not a souffle, you don’t have to worry about the type of baking dish you use, or whether it will fall or not. I use a 9 x 13 casserole dish to make this sweet side dish, but you can use any pan you like.
Instructions for Pineapple “Souffle” Casserole
This quick and easy side dish takes no time to prepare! Tear bread into chunks; combine butter, sugar and eggs, drain pineapple; combine well. Dump it all into a baking dish and bake In about 50 minutes, the pineapple souffle is done. You can serve this yummy side hot or warm..oh heck… you can even serve it as dessert!
If you want the top slightly browned, bake it uncovered. This gives a little crispiness to the top layer!
