One dish pineapple stuffing recipe

Every year I make Pineapple stuffing in addition to a traditional stuffing for Thanksgiving. I also make it for Christmas because it's probably my favorite side dish ever! It's quite a bit sweeter than regular stuffing but that's ok, that just means I can eat it twice. Once at dinner and again with ice cream on it for dessert!

Not only is the stuffing delicious, but it's easy to make and you don't even need a separate bowl. Just mix it up right in the baking dish! How's that for easy? This is the best pineapple stuffing recipe I've ever tried and it only calls for 5 simple ingredients. You probably have most of them on hand already. 

So put on your apron, preheat the oven and lets make some stuffing!

You only need a few ingredients for this easy recipe. If you can't find stuffing bread, you can use Texas Toast bread:

1/2 loaf stuffing bread
1 can crushed pineapple, drained (20 oz.)
1 stick butter, softened
1 cup sugar
4 eggs


Preheat oven to 350°F

Cut bread into cubes about 3/4" in size. 

Combine sugar and butter in baking dish. 

Beat in eggs 1 at a time till creamy. 

Mix in drained pineapple. 

Add cubed bread, tossing to coat bread with mixture. Make sure you get the mixture from the bottom of the dish and cover all bread pieces. Don't mix too vigorously! You don't want to mash up the bread, just coat it.

Cover and bake for 1 hour.

See? Easy! This is a slightly sweet stuffing, so make sure you also bookmark this recipe for the next time you bake a ham! Pineapple goes really well with ham, right? You'll be the hit of the Christmas or Easter celebration for sure. 

Truthfully, my favorite way to eat this stuffing is for dessert. Try it both ways....I'm sure you'll love it

So, while we're talking about Thanksgiving, cooking and all that good stuff ... lets talk about food safety too. Did you know that 1 in 6 Americans get sick with food poisoning every year? 1 in 6! That's crazy! 

You should just see all the stuff I learned by checking out the Food Safety Website. It's a really informative website. Not only does it have lots of food safety information, but there is a page with all the latest food recalls. 

That's important stuff!

As far as your holiday meals go, how you handle food after the dinner is done is super important and can help guarantee you don't catch any food borne illnesses:
  • Wrap and refrigerate your leftovers within 2 hours.  
  • Shallow containers should be used since they cool more quickly and evenly then deep containers.  
  • Consume refrigerated leftovers within 3-4 days.  
  • Dispose of perishable food left out for more then 2 hours. (Those deviled eggs that sat on the counter all afternoon need to meet Mr. Trashcan!)  
  • Don't forget to reheat solid leftovers to at least 165, and liquids like soups need to come to a rolling boil.

tips for a healthy holiday

Remember above all, that the bacteria that causes illness does not effect the taste, smell or appearance of food. There's really no way to 'tell' if your food will make you sick before you eat it, but taking a few precautions can greatly reduce your risk of getting sick. 

After all...who wants to spend the holidays feeling awful? Have a great holiday!
