We saw Paula Deen make this on the food network and now it has become one of our family’s favorite pass around dishes. Depending on whose house we go to there might be something a little extra or different in the casserole. I add just a little finely chopped jalapeno to mine for a little kick. My cousin adds some cubed cooked ham and her mother likes to add bacon. The saltiness of the ham and the bacon are a real nice contrast with the sweetness of the pineapple.
