I didn’t find out about this tasty dish until just recently though, so I’m super bummed I’ve missed out on it for so many years.

Last month I went to our girl’s youth church camp (I am one of the leaders), and for dinner one night we had these Hawaiian Haystacks. I didn’t know what they were, and everyone there apparently thought I was living under a rock because this dish is old hat to them.

MY OTHER RECIPES

I watched as one of my friends quickly pulled together the chicken gravy, added in a package of shredded rotisserie chicken from Costco (genius time saver), then heated up a big batch of minute rice.

Meanwhile all the girls were prepping the toppings in separate bowls. It looked like the toppings you would see at a salad bar! I was very intrigued.

The chicken gravy is poured on top of a bed of hot rice, then it’s your turn to make the haystack your own.

Of course since these are called “Hawaiian” there has to be pineapple. To be honest, I’m not a huge fan of pineapple in savory foods, but I put aside my differences and gave it a try.

I stacked my toppings as I high as I could… just like I do at any salad bar… it’s all about the toppings, right?!

I dug in and… WOW! You guys! I’ve been missing out my whole life!

    This is one of our favorite quick dinners. We like those toppings, but tend to lean more towards fruits. Our favorites are strawberries, mandarin oranges, apples, sunflower seeds, pumpkin seeds, shredded coconut, & sugared nuts.

    I've heard of (and eaten many times) standard haystacks, but this is new to me. I'll have to surprise my own church group with this sometime.
