  1. I am a loco moco fanatic. I wanted to make it more healthy too so I use quinoa or spiralized zucchini. I don’t eat beef so I use left over turkey burgers. However, the gravy is the best part for me so I use a gluten free gravy or vegan gravy. I eat this at least once a week. Seriously, this would be my choice for a last meal. May it never come to that!

    1. oh that is so fun, thank you for sharing!! Love that you have toyed with it and still remain committed…Well done Debi! aloha-

  2. Nice your healthy version looks so much nicer than the original, not a great fan of burgers. However, the mixture of rice, egg and bacon with fresh ingredients looks amazing can’t wait to try this out.

  3. Rice, eggs and avo … my three favourite things!! Going to try this this weekend 🙂

  4. Loving real kine loco moco! I gonna try the healthier version as well;-) Thanks for the recipe, Monica!
    Btw, just read an article in the Honolulu Magazine (restaurant guide) about loco moco…you can get it with a fancy lobster tail and fois gras as well😳

    1. Thank you Rabea! That’s so funny–I better go find the Honolulu Magazine. I guess loco moco is on everyone’s mind these days! 😉 Much Aloha to you-

  5. I never heard of loco moco, but my family has been making “breakfast rice” for years. Its more like your recipe. Fried next day rice, with garlic, pepper, soy sauce, chopped bacon, and a fried egg on top. We are asian mixed so rice is always around.
    I like the addition of spinich and avo! I have tried to get my fam on brown rice but they just can’t get used to not eating their jasmine sticky rice..lol
    I wonder if my grandpa picked up our fam recipe during WW2 when he was stationed in Hawaii..? Wish I could find out. Loved learning this fun legend 🙂

    1. Oh cool, thank you Nica! I wonder about your Grandpa too! The timing is about right, isn’t it? 🙂 So glad you shared. Much Aloha! XO

  6. OH My, we are making that! Anything with eggs and bacon is a winner in my house. We rarely make a big breakfast in the morning, but we love some breakfast food! In Virginia, we would do this with hashbrowns as the base and a little hotsauce on top of the egg. Yes ma’am!

    1. Oh good Paige! I didn’t mention in the post, but I also love this because it’s so easy to use leftover rice…Just make a little extra the night before and it’s so easy to throw this meal together! Hope you have a new go-to when your family craves a hot breakfast! 🙂 XO
