  1. I made this as a side dish for Easter. It was a big success. Even picky eaters loved it. I used brown sugar and did not pack it when measuring, since the pineapple is already sweet. Hand grated sharp cheddar is much better than store-bought shredded cheese. This could even pass as a dessert. Love the versatility and uniqueness of a fruit dish…tasty hot or like warm…fit perfectly in my square 8×8" Pyrex dish. Thanks for sharing!

    1. I agree with you on the freshly shredded cheddar, it is much better than buying already shredded. Thank you so much for the feedback πŸ™‚
