Is this a dessert? Do you have a picture of it? Inquiring minds need to know!!

Laurie this definitely could be used as dessert but we usually serve it as a side dish with ham or turkey.

After I went to bed I was thinking of this and thought it might be a side dish with ham. We often serve pineapple with it so that makes sense. Sounds yummy!

Any dish that has pineapple, sugar, butter and cheese is sure to be good! LOL
This is always a crowd pleaser.
If you try it let me know if it is a hit with your families.

I have been baking and making candy all day and I am wiped out!
My hubby is going to take me to the buffet at the casino tonight for supper. Yummy! All I can eat including seafood and I don't have to cook it or clean up afterwards!
