Loco Moco - Turkey Style


If you've been to Hawaii, you've had a loco moco. It's practically a national dish or something. Along with kalua pork and poi and SPAM! You can't forget about the spam there. I might need to make a spam musubi now...

Wow that egg did NOT want to stay on at all, whatsoever.

Back on topic! Focus! Our loco moco here is slightly different - it's made of ground turkey instead of beef - like we like to do around here (a la Grilled Hot Turkey Patties and Turkey Meatball Subs). Actually, this patty is made the same way as before. The patty is then placed on steamed white rice, smothered in a bit of gravy, and topped off with a poached egg for good measure.

We added asparagus to the side because, uh, I love veggies! Everything was delicious. Enjoy!


enough turkey to make 4 small patties
1/2 teaspoon dried onion
a pinch of thyme
1/4 teaspoon black pepper
1/2 teaspoon salt free garlic and herb seasoning
1/2 teaspoon crushed red pepper
1/4 teaspoon cajun seasoning
1/4 teaspoon oregano
1/4 teaspoon parsley
1/8 teaspoon turmeric
1/4 teaspoon cumin
1/2 teaspoon soy sauce
1/2 teaspoon dried celery flakes

2 cup white rice, cooked
1/3 can of brown or turkey gravy
2 handfuls of asparagus
4 eggs


Mash and Mix everything together by hand. Let sit for an hour to soak up any flavors.
Form into 4 equal size patties and sear them in a pan until browned on both sides.
Quickly cook asparagus as desired.
Poach the 4 eggs - one for each loco moco.
Stack just like the photos! Rice then meat then gravy then egg.


  1. I love this...especially the picture of the egg sliding away. Poached eggs...any time...

  2. Thanks! It was trying to scamper away, I'm sure of it!
