This dish is a Hawai’i favorite, and everyone from the islands learns how to master it quickly. It’s a very simple recipe, with few ingredients, so even the most novice cook can make it. Best of all is its versatility. Substitute your favorite rice, swap out the protein, even pick your favorite gravy – the possibilities are endless! I’ve stuck with the original recipe so you can fully embrace the classic.
1 cup medium grain white rice, cooked and hot
1 hamburger patty
1 cup gravy
2 TBSP butter
Fry hamburger in the pan until cooked through, set aside and drain grease.
Add butter to pan, turn heat to low, then break the egg into the pan.
Allow egg to cook until whites thicken, about 5 minutes.
Carefully flip egg over and cook for another 3 minutes. Remove from pan.
Place a ball of rice on plate, layer hamburger over it, then add egg to the top. Smother dish with hot gravy and serve immediately.
The best way to experience this dish is to break the egg yolk and get every component in a bite.
Superhero Tip: For a breakfast dish I like to use a white gravy. For a lunch or dinner dish I prefer to use brown gravy. Both are delicious!
Second Superhero Tip: Mix up the meat in the dish, you can substitute virtually any meat. My favorite switch is SPAM, a Hawai’i staple.
