This is a delicious way to use up stale bread that you have on hand. Stale bread is excellent at soaking up sweet and tangy pineapple flavor. Top it off with a layer of brown sugar that is lightly toasted in the oven and you have fruity perfection!

I typically serve this dish just as written, but you’re welcome to top it with additional pineapple rings or maraschino cherries for a little pop of color. Stale bread will give you the best results here. If you’ve only got fresh bread to work with, spread the slices out on a baking sheet and leave them overnight. In the morning your bread will be dry and ready to soak up all the pineapple goodness!
