Unique Missionary Recipe Blog

The mother of Elder Tayler Christensen has put up a blog Mission Recipes of favorite recipes of her son. I think those seeking missionary recipes will find it of some value for other prospective missionaries. She has chosen some standard dishes that are missionary favorites.

When I was at BYU girls always like to make us Hawaiian Haystacks. Prospective missionaries and their parents can get a jump on choosing food dishes by checking out her blog.

Hawaiian Haystacks

1-2 cans Cream of Chicken Soup (add about half as much water as soup)
1 can cooked chicken (if you want to do it the easy way, or you can cook some frozen chicken breast)
grated cheddar cheese
chopped green onions
sliced black olives
shredded coconut
chow mein noodles
spices to taste
cubed pineapple

This recipe isn't a very exact science. You can add pretty much however much of whatever you want. I cook our rice in a rice maker (you could also do minute rice in the microwave), cook the cream of chicken soup and chicken in a saucepan, and add oregano, onion powder, a little garlic powder, and/or whatever else I'm in the mood for. The chicken soup goes over the rice, and you add the cheese, chow mein noodles, veggies, coconut, and whatever else you want on top. YUM!
There are quite a few recipes on the site plus she wants others to add their comments and suggestions. I think her blog can sustain itself even after her son's mission since there is a niche there.
