How to Make Pineapple Stuffing

It should only take about 10 minutes of prep time to get this buttery and oh so soul-satisfying pineapple stuffing ready to go in the oven:

  • Cream the butter and sugar. In a bowl, cream the softened butter and granulated sugar together.
  • Add the eggs. Add in the 4 eggs, one by one, and mix to combine.
  • Add the pineapple. Add the drained can of crushed pineapple and mix to combine.
  • Fold. Fold in the white bread cubes.
  • Transfer to a baking dish. Transfer the mixture into a lightly greased 1.5-quart baking dish.
  • Bake. Bake the stuffing in the preheated oven for 60 minutes (or until gold and bubbly).
  • Serve. Serve the stuffing warm.

3 Simple Tips for Making Pineapple Stuffing

If you’re planning on making this pineapple stuffing recipe, be sure to keep these 3 simple tips in mind:

  • Take your time when adding the eggs. When you’re adding the 4 eggs into your stuffing, make sure to be patient and allow each egg to fully incorporate before adding in the next one. Another good tip is to scrape the sides of the bowl after adding each egg as well.
  • You don’t have to drain the canned pineapple. While it’s recommended to drain the can of crushed pineapple, it’s not an absolute requirement. In fact, leaving the pineapple juices in can end up making a pineapple stuffing that’s even more sweet, moist and succulent.
  • You can use store-bought breadcrumbs. To save time, you can simply purchase breadcrumbs at the grocery store instead of cutting sliced white bread into cubes yourself.

    I like the idea of this as a change of pace side dish for ham or chicken. But you might want to change the bake time from seconds to minutes in the instructions 😉
