My "back porch" is my kitchen, my favorite room in the house. Come on in, the coffee is fresh, and I just made a pitcher of sweet tea. The cookies will be out in a minute. I have over 40 years of recipes to share with you, along with my opinion on everything. Oh my, you are right, it is cocktail time. What can I get you? Of course I can make you a Mint Julep! Stop by anytime, something is always cooking, and the back door is never locked.

Bon Appetit, Y'all

Miss Lexie's Pineapple Casserole

This is one of my very favorite Sweet Potato Queen recipes. I believe this was originally in The Sweet Potato Queens' Book of Love, but I know it's in The Sweet Potato Queens' Big-Ass Cookbook. This qualifies for both regular food and Southern Funeral Food. The last time I took this to a funeral luncheon I thought those folks were going to eat the flowers off my bowl. This is great with any pork or chicken dish.

Miss Lexie's Pineapple Casserole
4-6 servings
print recipe

"You want to drain a 20-ounce can of pineapple (in its own juice) chunks or tidbits. Save 3 tablespoons of the juice and mix it up with 1/2 cup sugar and 3 tablespoons flour. Stir that mixture in with the pineapple and 1 cup sharp grated cheese. I have never tried making this with fat-free cheese and would personally consider the act to be blasphemous, but I have used some reduced-fat cheese when it was all I had and it came out okay. Dump all that into a greased casserole dish. Melt 1 stick butter and stir it up with 1/2 cup Ritz crackers and put all that on top of the pineapple stuff and bake it at 350 degrees for 20-30 minutes, and prepare to be comforted."

So says the Queenly of the Queens.

  1. I am a long-time fan of the Sweet Potato Queens and have made this recipe. All who have tasted it loved it. I am enjoying the two posts by Anonymouses above and just wondering how a purebred Sweet Potato Queen would reply to each. Fun, fun fun.
