Foodie Friday: Scalloped Pineapple Sauce for Ham

Welcome to Foodie Friday, dear reader. For many, this is a holiday weekend with religious significance. Whatever you celebrate, rejoice, enjoy, and remember the reason for the holiday. As my bean gets older, holidays take on a new meaning. I will always make an Easter basket for my one-and-done. I will forever hide an Easter basket for my one-and-done. In some ways, as she grows, holidays become more fun. Don’t get me wrong, part of me longs for the days when she was a chubby, sticky-faced toddler who thought I hung the moon. However, my teenage bean is funny, fun, and alight with mischief. Now that she is older, I can really challenge Jordan with the most difficult hiding places for her Easter basket. I have to up my game every year, but that is part of the fun.

The Smays do a traditional Easter meal complete with ham, deviled eggs, scalloped potatoes, and usually a gob cake for dessert. My family is not a huge ham fan, but I continue to stick with tradition regardless of their preferences. Scalloped pineapple sauce is one side dish I always make when we have ham. Nobody likes it but me. However, it reminds me of better times and holidays spent with my family.

Today I will share with you my sister’s recipe for scalloped pineapple sauce. It is sweet, warm, spicy, and oh, so delicious. I can eat it by itself as a sweet treat, but it is particularly good with salty ham. I hope your holiday is spent with people you love and food that makes you happy. Enjoy!

Scalloped Pineapple Sauce for Ham


1 Can Crushed Pineapple, Well Drained

2 Tsp. Vanilla

2 Eggs, Well Beaten

1 Cup Sugar

¼ Cup Water

2 Tsp. Cornstarch Dissolved in the ¼ Cup of Water

4 Tsp. Butter



Mix all ingredients except the butter and the cinnamon. Pour into a casserole dish. Cut butter into slices and top the pineapple mixture. Sprinkle with cinnamon to taste. Bake for one hour in a 350-degree oven.

Stay safe, be smart, remember the good times, create new memories, and keep washing your hands on this holiest of holidays.
