Loco Moco ~ Hawaiian Fast Food

All over Hawaii you see Loco Moco, a classic Hawaiian soul food dish, listed on menus for breakfast, lunch or dinner. 

Loco Moco is a traditional fast food - on the bottom of the plate a scoop of white rice, a hamburger patty, one sunny side up egg, that is smothered with brown gravy. 

As you eat break the egg, combine the burger, egg, rice, and gravy for a perfect bite of Hawaiian paradise.

You know the saying "When in Rome..." so I tried this Hawaiian classic and found that the flavor combinations was delicious. 

Looking for something inexpensive, quick, and easy to prepare here's the recipe.

Loco Moco 


1/4 pound ground beef
1 egg
cooked rice
hot prepared brown gravy


Cook hamburger patty in frying pan over medium heat to your liking. 
Set burger aside and cook egg sunny side up or over easy using the 
same pan used to fry the hamburger.

To serve this dish place a bed of rice in a large bowl or place, top with the hamburger
patty, fried egg,  and hot gravy.

Makes 1 serving for a hurgry person.

I tried this dish with rice, but Loco Moco was also offered with a base of mashed potatoes.

Maybe Loco Moco could be the answer to that age old question;
What should I make for dinner tonight?


  1. Not sure about this one. I didn't know you were so adventurous.

  2. Yum, I could totally see myself eating a vegetarian version of this!

  3. Yes: when in Rome. But when in NW Wisconsin, you couldn't get me to try one of these. lol
