No Eggs Were Harmed in the Making of These Easter Dishes

This is a recipe I've used for years because it's an excellent side dish with a ham.

1/2 cup butter and 1/2 cup sugar, cream together
Beat in two whole eggs
Add one 19 .oz can crushed pineapple
Pour over 5 cups cubed white bread (air bread is especially good) and let it all soak together evenly
Season with ginger or all spice or (ta dah) Pumpkin Pie Seasoning, which is made of:
ground cinnamon
lemon peel
cloves and cardamom.
Bake at 350 until golden-colored and bubbling.

1/4 cup minced red onion
3 large peaches, skinned and diced or chopped
2 T olive oil
2 or 3 T lime juice
Garnish with sprigs of cilantro

Mix it all up and serve as an addition to a slice of ham.

Ham Hint
If there are only four or five guests expected at your table you don't need a whole or half ham.  What I did last year and will do again this year, is swagger over to the Deli section of our supermarket and buy a pound and a half of Black Forest ham, sliced 1/2 in. thick.  It's just as expensive as a whole ham, but no bone, no waste - just pure ham which I will coat with brown sugar and Pumpkin Pie Spice and bake so that the top of each slice of ham will have glaze/crust.
