Have you ever heard of Hawaiian Haystacks before? If you haven’t it may be because you are not in Utah. I have had several people who aren’t originally from Utah, that are now in Utah, say that they have never heard of them. So I am sharing this with you so you’ll be able to know what they aren’t if you haven’t heard of them.
These are yummy and quick. I make these all the time for my family and they ALL LOVE THEM. They all may not put the same toppings on them, but that’s part of the fun with these. The basis for the Hawaiian Haystacks is cooked rice and a creamy sauce. I am going to share two ways that I cook the sauce with you today.
One is a stove top method and the other is a crock pot method. On the stove top method, I usually don’t add the chicken. I figure it doesn’t hurt to have a meal without meat and it is a breeze to whip up without the chicken. This recipe is what I make for my family of 5, but can easily be increased or decreased if needed. You can use chicken broth in place of the milk if you prefer.
