This is based on a Hawaiian breakfast favorite called Loco Moco. I've modified it to appeal to those that like their breakfast with an old fashioned white gravy. Not for the weak of heart, but mighty tasty just the same.

My family had their doubts about this just because it was so unusual. The only specific complaint was that DH thought the green pepper flavor didn't go well with something else in the gravy, so I might leave that out next time. But I thought this was delicious and I'll definitely make it again. Thanks for sharing.
