Loco Moco!

It’s recipe time again—yay!!

I know, I know—I’ve been delinquent in this area, so I’m giving you one today and another next Monday, okay?

This recipe is a popular breakfast served in many restaurants in Hawaii. Loco Moco was created at a restaurant in Hilo, Hawaii in 1949 when a group of guys asked for a cheap morning meal. The name came from the fact the breakfast was so crazy (loco) . . . and moco turned it into a cool rhyme!

You can serve loco moco for lunch or dinner as well as breakfast, so I made it for dinner. My family loved it and it is very filling. You can serve it with a sausage patty, ham, or bacon if you prefer. My guys thought it would be even better with sausage, so next time that’s what we’ll try!

Serve loco moco in a bowl. Start with rice, then a hamburger patty (or another meat you might prefer--bacon, ham, sausage patty). Cover with gravy (I used a brown gravy mix to make mine) and add a fried egg on top. Green onions as a garnish is a great crown to the amazing meal, but I also added some chopped tomatoes. Yummy! Yummy!

Easy Peasy! Hope you enjoy. And don’t forget to come back on Thursday, and then again on Monday for a second easy recipe.

  1. That actually sounds really delicious! Not sure about the rice, but I love sausage gravy with eggs!!!! Mmmmm.

  2. Ditto, Karla! And it's very easy to make. Filling, too, which is what surprised me.

  3. The rice is great, Jessica! You have to have rice with it--that's what makes it so "Island!"


I love hearing from my readers! Mahalo for visiting and commenting. Aloha! --Cheryl
