I have been searching for a recipe that has been requested for our Thanksgiving dinner. I turned to allrecipes.com to find it since I couldn't find my recipe but then I couldn't find the most important ingredient anywhere. Finally, I found it at Albertsons. Hooray! Here is the recipe:
Frog Eye Salad
1 cup white sugar
2 tablespoons flour
2 1/2 teaspoons salt
1 3/4 cups unsweetened pineapple juice (I use the juice from the drained cans)
2 eggs, beaten
1 tablespoon lemon juice
3 quarts water
1 tablespoon vegetable oil
1 (16 ounce) package acini di pepe pasta
3 (11 ounce) cans mandarin oranges, drained
2 (20 ounce) cans pineapple tidbits, drained
1 (20 ounce) can crushed pineapple, drained
1 (8 ounce) container frozen whipped topping, thawed
1 cup miniature marshmallows
1. In a sauce pan, combine sugar, flour, 1/2 teaspoon salt, pineapple juice and eggs. Stir and cook over medium heat until thickened. Remove from heat; add lemon juice and cool to room temperature.
2. Bring water to a boil, add oil, remaining salt and cook pasta until al dente. Rinse under cold water and drain.
3. In a large bowl, combine the pasta, egg mixture, mandarin oranges, pineapple and whipped topping. Mix well and refrigerate overnight or until chilled. Before serving add marshmallows. Toss and serve.
