Hillary Chybinski: some Easter planning. . .

some Easter planning. . .

. . .since Easter is a week away, I've been doing some planning.  I am fortunate enough that my mom cooks the lion's share of the meal - I bring a side and sometimes dessert.

I bring the same side dish every year - it's become a tradition.  I got the recipe years ago from a friend at work, and have been making it every year ever since.  It is not even remotely close to healthy - but it is delicious.

Pineapple Stuffing (really more of a souffle) - serves 6 to 8

1 lg can of crushed pineapple - drained
10 slices of white bread - cubed
7 large eggs - fork beaten
2 cups of sugar
1/2 lb. butter

Preheat oven to 350F

Melt the butter with the sugar in a bowl. 
Mix in the bread, eggs and pineapple.
Pour into a sprayed casserole pan (13x9x2)
Sprinkle top generously with cinnamon.
Bake at 350 F uncovered for 1 hour.
Let sit for 15 minutes before serving.

The dessert I chose to bring - is a simple Lemon-Blueberry Swirl Cake, I found at the Kraft website.  It looks easy, delicious and seems as if it will travel well.  As a bonus, Target has most of the ingredients on sale this week!

Let me know what's on your holiday menu - Passover or Easter or some other spring celebration.

  1. I've had that pineapple stuffing before and it is A++! I have no idea what I'm making for Easter. We're going straight to see family after church, so I don't know what to make ideas?

    Your recipe sounds like the one my frugal sil makes for Easter every year, plus other special occasions. It's a big favorite with the Hoyer Family.
