Quick Easy Hawaiian Haystacks are filled with fluffy rice and creamy chicken gravy, then topped with all your favorite things for the ultimate comfort food dinner!
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.
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 smelled absolutely delicious, so I knew I was going to love this.
Quick Easy Hawaiian Haystacks
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!
I knew instantly that I wanted to come home, make it fifty more times, and of course share it with you. (Just in case you haven’t seen these before either)
Trust me, you’re going to LOVE these haystacks. They’re so quick and so easy, plus out of this world delicious!
