The relief cook hadn't been around for Hawaiian Rice night, either, because when he looked at the recipe, he was really skeptical. He thought it looked weird and was asking if I'd ever seen the regular cook make it before, and if I'd ever tasted it, etc. I said no, it was a first for me, too.
It does look strange - kind of like a combination of ambrosia salad and rice pudding. Here is the recipe.
Hawaiian Rice (makes 6 servings)
1 1/2 cups cooked rice
1 cup mini marshmallows
3/4 cup crushed pineapple, drained
- combine these ingredients and chill for 3 hours
Add: 1 cup cool whip or whipped cream and 3 tbsp sugar. Fold into rice mixture. Chill again. Sprinkle with coconut. Serve.
Here is step one...
My shift ended before the dessert was finished so I have no idea how this turned out. But I will see the cook again soon and ask him how it went.
What do you think? Does this appeal to you or not?
