    We serve these on our caterings and they are fantastic. We take the King's Hawaiian Rolls and split them and leave them as an open sandwich and we top them with a thin slice of kiwi.

    I had saved this recipe for a long time; I should have paid more attention to the directions. I missed the part about the pineapple being drained. :( My intention was to use this on muffins, as a treat for Easter. Once mixed, with the undrained crushed pineapple, the mixture was a little soupy (MY fault), but tasty. I then recalled a similar recipe that a friend had made many years ago, as a dip for potato chips, served in a pineapple half. I tried this filling as a dip for chips, and it was great. Just like the one I remembered. I will make this again, AS DIRECTED, but wanted to post about my mistake, to help others...Thanks for sharing, Marg!

    5 Stars all the way! These are so good, even my hubby who thought they looked like "chick" food loved them. Made for The Big Tea Party in the Photo Forum.

    So Yum! Put this spread on King's Hawaiian Bread and made little sandwiches. They were a big hit at my Luau.

    Mde these for my 9 year old's Luau party. I used Kings Hawaiian bread and they were very yummy. The adults seemed to like them more than the kids tho. I also left out the nuts 'cause 'crunch' never goes over well for sandwiches in this house. I will probably make this again for myself. Its easy enough for a quick lunch or dip. Thanks for posting.


With the changes to the email notifications and removal of private messaging, I am no longer able to respond to questions about my recipes. Yet another feature change that has made the website less user friendly. It's sad to watch a fantastic site deteriorate over the years. Some of my recipes are on my blog.
