I just made this Hawaiian Haystacks and it was delicious ever! Thanks for the awesome recipe. Can’t wait to make more them.
Yum! I’m so pleased with this meal I could dance the hula! Not only is it inexpensive, but really quick and easy too. My house was so quiet during dinner because everyone was busy stuffing their faces. We added peas, red bell pepper and celery to ours. Another bonus, it’s easy enough for my 11 year old to cook when he needs to earn a cooking badge!
Oh yeah, when I cook my chicken I add butter and brown sugar too.
aww man guys, this one really is worth trying if you havent already. It is so good!! I usually always eat it like Karrie does but if you ever want to make it fancy you can cook up a pork shoulder with some brown sugar and make a gravy with the drippings and pinapple juice. It was really good. I still usually do the traditional way because its way faster and just as good, but if you want to spice things up a little thats one way to do it. Great recipe sis, love this one!!
This is one of my favorites too…so many toppings can go on this…I also use slivered almonds, coconut flakes, green onions and celery.
