It’s one of those recipes that Easter would just be wrong without. Nothing accompanies a great ham quite the way Mom’s Pineapple stuffing does. I am dusting this one off and giving it to the public so you can go about creating your own special memories.
The key to this recipe is bread choice on this dish. You need something that is nice and dense, otherwise the dish turns to mush, and that’s just no good. A solid sourdough is a great choice, but I will always grab Challah anytime I can for this one. Avoid processed breads and buy from the bakery if you can, not only is it better, it tends to cut back on some of the preservatives in the breads.
