Lots of folks have never heard of pineapple casserole until they visit Montgomery - are you a fan of this hyper-local dish?
Pineapple casserole may not sound like the most appetizing of dishes, but as they say: “That’s only because you haven’t tried it yet!” The food is one of the most tasty southern staples we could think of, and given Montgomery’s propensity for eating it, I’d argue we’re not alone. But if this is your first time hearing about the food, or you just wanted to up your cooking game, then we have just the ticket!
Al Steineker from The King’s Table Catering Company helped us learn how to make the notorious pineapple casserole. It takes just a few, easy ingredients that you’ve likely got laying around the house. Here’s the list:
- White flour
- Pineapple tidbits
- White sugar
- Ritz crackers
Past that, you’ll just need some solid glassware and a typical oven. You’ll keep the casserole in until the edges start to bubble and simmer. Then, you’re off to the races (and some delicious, somewhat nutritious pineapple casserole.)
If all of this sounds a bit too confusing to understand through text, have no fear – we’ve got a video featuring Mr. Steineker up above. You can follow his instructions step-by-step, and while your first couple pineapple casserole creations may not be as good as his, you’ll get the hang of it soon.
And it’s absolutely worth it – we weren’t sold on the dish to start, either.
A big thank you goes out to The King’s Table Catering Company for helping us create this video! Check out their website if you ever have catering needs. Steineker and his team offer some of the best tastes in Montgomery.
