4 Tablespoons butter (1/2 stick)
3/4 cup brown sugar
4 eggs, beaten
1 (20 ounce) can crushed pineapple , drain half the juice and reserve it
5 slices white bread, crust removed, roughly 1/2” squares


Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

Melt the butter in a microwave till just liquified. Allow the butter to cool for a minute, then mix in the brown sugar. Add the beaten eggs and combine well. Add the drained pineapple. Fold in the bread cubes just until incorporated. The mixture should be wet, but not soupy. If it’s too dry, add a tablespoon or two of the reserved juice. Turn into a 1 1/2 quart casserole dish that has been sprayed with cooking oil. Cook in oven for 45 minutes to one hour, until the casserole is set and lightly browned on top.
