This favorite "pupu" (Hawaiian appetizer) is from the Hawaiian Electric Company's cookbook called A Taste To Remember. It is always a "hit" at potlucks and parties. Many folks use the bread for dipping, but I have seen just as many people fill a bowl and eat it with a spoon! It makes enough for an army (or NAVY!).
