- Butter - softened
- Large Eggs
- Crushed Pineapple
- White bread slices
Bread - We use plain white sandwich bread but you could easily use brioche bread, Hawaiian bread, or any soft bread.
Butter - You can use vegan butter to make this vegan.
Sugar - You can cut the sugar in half if you don't want as sweet of a pineapple stuffing. You can also use a 50/50 mix of white and brown sugar if you want a more caramel flavor.
Crushed Pineapple - You can add this drained or undrained depending on the texture you want for the stuffing. We normally drain pineapple juice from the crushed pineapple. Chunk pineapple can be used if you want more texture.
Recipe Varaitions - you can add in toasted sliced almonds on the top if you want a bit of a crunch in your stuffing. A bit of vanilla extract for sweetness.
For additional texture - you can add in ⅓ cup chopped pecans/walnuts. Stir in dried cranberries.

Can pineapple stuffing be made ahead of time?
Yes, you can make this baked or unbaked depending on how you want to prepare it. Either way make sure it is tightly wrapped and air tight in the refrigerator.
If you are pre-baking it just put it back in the oven wrapped in foil and heat it up when you are ready to serve it.
