With a Grateful Prayer and a Thankful Heart: Pineapple Spoonbread

Pineapple Spoonbread

Serving a baked ham for Easter?  Looking for a delicious side dish?
Pineapple Spoonbread is a casserole we first had at my sister-in-laws when we were first married.
It quickly became a favorite and goes with ham like stuffing goes with turkey.
Usually I cream the sugar and butter together with a mixer.  This time I melted the butter and whisked together.  
even more tasty when prepared by little hands!

That sounds delicious!

This is one of the things I like most about blogging - the chance to try things that aren't part of my everyday life. I've read about spoonbread in novels, but it isn't something that is served up here. I will give it a try with the Easter ham as it sounds intriguing!

Kristina said...

Looks easy to make, and good too. Thanks for sharing.

Dayle @ A Collection of This and That said...

This sounds perfect as a side-dish with ham. I've never had it, but look forward to trying it. Thanks!

Carol said...

Definitely tastes better when you have a sweet helper! The spoonbread looks delicious, sounds like it would be perfect with ham, I'll try it.

Suzanne said...

My gosh, Lorraine! What a great side dish for ham. I always bake my ham with pineapple slices on it with marchino cherries in the center of each slice...and the rest dotted with cloves. Everyone always dives to get a pineapple slice so this is a great recipe for me. I am copying it over. xo Diana

podso said...

This sounds sort of familiar to me but I don't think I've ever made it, or not for years. It almost sounds like a dessert! Thanks for the recipe and your helper is adorable!

I have never had this, but I can just imagine its goodness! My mom always served pineapple with ham, so this will bring back memories. Yummy!

Thanks so much for joining Grace at Home!

Jennifer King said...

Found you through the Grace At Home link party. This is perfect timing, because I just bought a bunch of canned pineapple on sale at CVS this week. Thanks for the great recipe idea!

Oh this does sound delicious! I love pineapple in any way, shape or form and will definitely have to try this! Cute helpers like yours make every recipe more yummy!

Julie@teachinggoodeaters said...

We have always had pineapple and banana "fruit salad" with our Easter ham. Last year it was forgotten and I really missed it- this may be even better though!!!

I'd love it if you'd share this idea at Food Adventure Friday. http://teachinggoodeaters.blogspot.com/2012/03/food-adventure-friday-link-up-now-with.html

By the way, I LOVE the way you did the photo collage of the cooking process!! Brilliant!

Kellie Brown said...

My great grandmother used to make this, but call it pineapple souffle. I make it for every holiday now because it's such a huge hit. I've never seen anyone else make it!!

Lori said...

This looks delicious! I will have to try it out for my crew. I'm glad I found your blog at the Creations by Kara party. I'm a new follower too, so I can keep in touch. I would love if you stopped by and followed back on LF and GFC. Nice to meet you, Lori

Donna said...

That sounds delicious! We make old-fashioned spoon bread all the time. Never heard of it with pineapple!

tammy said...

Hi, this recipe looks great. Do you or anyone else have any suggestions or preferences on what kind of bread to use? Thank you. Tammy

LDH said...

Hi Tammy, Regular white bread works fine but I really like using potato bread. Wanting to use left over bread one time, I used part wheat bread but didn't like the flavor too much.

Six Sisters said...

This looks so good! Never had anything like this before. We hope you'll be back to our "Strut Your Stuff Saturday". We loved having you! -The Sisters

Snap said...

I love pineapple. This sounds delicious.

georgi said...

Hopefully someone will get back to me today as i would like to make this later this afternoon. Do you drain the pineapple, or use the juice?
