When I was growing up, my mom used to have this yellow plastic recipe card holder. For some reason or another, I think that it was loaded with these cards from Betty Crocker. At any rate, she made quite a few recipes from this box – most of which I hated!
One of those meals was Waikiki Meatballs. I remember just abhorring this dish growing up. As a matter of fact, I hated it so much, my parents would use it to threaten me with! “If you don’t get that room clean, we’re gonna have Waikiki Meatballs for dinner!” Needless to say, it always worked – I did whatever I had to do to NOT eat that!
Over the years, my taste buds have changed. I have often told my dad and my brother, “You know, I’d probably like Waikiki Meatballs now.” I’m not sure exactly what made me search up the recipe, but thanks to the Internet, I found it. The above picture is exactly how I remember it looking. Now, I have no idea what it tastes like, but since I have the recipe, I may just have to whip some up and see if I like them.
Just in case you’d like to try them, here is the link to the recipe….
If you happen to try them, let me know what you think…
