Until there is a need to create another sub-forum in HawaiiThreads just for recipes, the Kaukau Korner will have to do for the time being.

The biggest collection of local style recipes that are in one place that I'm aware of is on the Ono Recipe Forums (www.alohaworld.com/ono). There are over 600 local recipes in there, and more are added all the time.

There's also HECO's long-standing "Electric Kitchen (http://www.heco.com/CDA/default/0,1999,TCID%253D4%2526EmbedCID%253D0%2526CCID%253D 0%2526LCID%253D0%2526CTYP%253DARTC,00.html)" show and recipe repository. I browse there all the time, but have to stop because I get too hungry.

And Art Pollard, who's been online since... forever also has his Local Kine Recipes collection (http://www.hawaii.edu/recipes/).

My wife is in LV with my mom and sisters for girls week out so I'm left home alone to fend for myself. That Chicken Enchilada Casserole from the Local Kine recipes site looks like something yummy and that I could handle. :)

... because I made it up (I think).

Okay, someone has more than likely done this for years, but I've never seen a recipe/suggestion for it, as far as I can remember. For me, it was the result of some culinary pondering. Not on a gourmet level, mind you ... on a totally local, mom-hoping-to-create-a-comfort-food-for-the-kids kind of level.

I made meatloaf with ground beef AND grated Spam. Added the usual finely minced onion, garlic, breadcrumbs, beaten egg and pepper (no salt, because of the Spam) ... and it got raves from the kids! (I liked it too, served as it was with piping hot rice ... and some veg. on the side.)

I plan further experimentation.

Not a revelation, but search engines such as GOOGLE (http://www.google.com) finds every recipe in the world. Type in the key word and you'll find it.

That said, I look for the common denominator to finalize which recipe is actually valid. Many out there either have wrong measurements or are simply written poorly. Same applies to printed books.

For instance, if you're looking for how to make kalua pig in the oven, someone might say to use GRAPE LEAVES . Or, "chicken may be substituted for pork". Are you kidding me!?

Find the most common ingredients , measurements and directions to a given recipe and go with that. It's worked for me every time. The web has turned cook books into coffee table conversation pieces.

Never tried that with Spam, but I've occasionally used a meat mixture that's half-half ground beef and pork for both meatloaf and chili. The pork seems to add a little sweetness to both dishes.

I also used to make a kinda Southwest meatloaf, where I'd season with cumin and coriander, put half the meat mix in the 9-inch pan, put a layer of corn chips (Doritos/Fritos) on top, then put the rest of the meat mix on top of that. Top with Cheddar/Jack cheese. Maybe even split some large chili peppers (to your own desired level of heat -- habaneros, serranos, or milder ones) and put them on top of the cheese.

Thanks Mr. Meister! Your recipe sounds like fun -- something my kids would like as well. I've mixed other ground meats, too, such as, lightening up ground beef with some ground turkey, etc. Bulk Italian sausage is another wonderful mix-in, along with herbs/spices that make sense given the type of meat(s) being used, of course.

My sister gave me an awesome recipe for Teriyaki meatloaf -- I'm sure similar recipes are all over the Web. (I've got so many foodie bookmarks!) I regularly search the Web for recipes, but I still love my cookbooks.

One time, my late beloved and I interviewed some chefs about ways to use left over boiled eggs from Easter. Chef Sam Choy suggested splitting the top of an unbaked meatloaf and filling the indentation with a row of peeled boiled eggs, which you would then re-cover with the meat before baking. I tried it at home and it was great, and kind of fun to look at as well.

Aloha! This was my Grandfather's recipe. And I have only given it out to my kids :)

"Slumgulian"

2 cans Stewed Tomato's (I like S&W brand...mexican and italian versions)
2 small cans Tomato Sauce (or 1 large one)
2 cans Corned Beef
2 large Onions
4-6 large cloves of Garlic (or more if you like...I like :) )
6 medium or 4 really big Potato's
6-8 pieces of Bacon
Black Pepper
Chili Powder


Cut potato's into 1" cubes, and set aside in a bowl.
Chop onions and set aside in another bowl.
Chop garlic and set aside in a 3rd bowl.
In a large/deep frying pan fry up the bacon till crispy...set aside and drain on paper towels.
Add potato's to bacon grease and fry till partially cooked and browned,
Then add onions, and continue to cook till somewhat transparent,
Then add garlic.
(At some point you may need to add some oil while frying...it may get dry..I like Olive Oil)
Now add cans of tomato's, tomato sauce and a couple of cans of water.
Crumble Bacon and Corned Beef into pan.
Season to taste ( I usually have to sprinkle a little here and little there taste testing all the way :D )

Cook on a medium heat till it has cooked down, and has a fairly thick consistancy....stirring most of the time (if it burns at all it will make the whole thing taste burnt :p ).
And the potato's are done.

I love this wonderful meal with bread and butter
Oh man...I'm hungry now

This is a way-old thread -- but for some reason I really have been feeling compelled to share some of these recipe URLs I have come across. We all know about Food Network and Aloha World and many others, but these may be some roads less traveled -- and I hope you find recipes or inspiration for "keeper" recipes for you and yours.

(Note - there are great differences in the types of recipes for home cooks, versus the foodservice industry. I found a great Teriyaki Chix Wings recipe I plan to make for Super Bowl Sunday on the foodservice pages, that is NOT on the home cooks pages.)

I did not say grape! I distinctly remember saying figleaves. I think.
