Pineapple Casserole

1 C sugar
6 T all-purpose flour
2 C grated sharp cheddar
2 (20 oz) cans pineapple chunks, drained, and 6 T pineapple juice reserved
1 C cracker crumbs (recommended: Ritz)
8 T (1 stick) butter, melted, plus extra for greasing pan

Preheat oven to 350.
Grease a medium size casserole dish with butter.
In a large bowl, stir together the sugar and flour. Gradually stir in the
cheese. Add the drained pineapple chunks, and stir until ingredients are
well combined. Pour the mixture into the prepared casserole dish.
In another medium bowl, combine the cracker crumbs, melted butter, and
reserved pineapple juice, stirring with a rubber spatula until evenly
blended. Spread crumb mixture on top of pineapple mixture. Bake for 25 to
30 minutes, or until golden brown.
