Hawaiian Loco Moco (Hearty Breakfast)

READY IN: 20mins
Recipe by Nif_H

Loco Moco is Hawaii's original homemade fast food and can be found at just about any fast food joint, roadside diner, mom and pop restaurant or lunch wagon in the Islands. There are many different versions of Loco Moco but they have 4 basic ingredients. Rice, a beef patty, sunny-side up egg and gravy. This is for 1 serving so you might want to share - it's a HUGE dish! The cooking time varies depending on if you have to make the rice or gravy from scratch. Enjoy!

My grandson was here today and it's his birthday. The birthday person gets to pick the menu for the day and he was thrilled to hear that we were visiting the Pacific Islands this tour. Before I could even give him choices - he requested Loco Moco, lol.

He was in heaven chowing down on this and kept thanking me for his favorite Hawaiian meal. Thanks Nif for making me look like a hero today! This was a good, easy, and authentic lunch plate. Made for ZWT7 for the Emerald City Shakers.
