The Loco Moco is a Hawaiian breakfast dish, enjoyed by locals and tourists alike. The traditional dish is thought to have originated on the Big Island in 1949 and consists of a bed of white rice, topped by a hamburger patty, which is then topped with an egg and served with a generous amount of brown gravy.
In this Paleo-friendly version, Cauliflower Mash replaces the white rice and a coconut milk-coconut amino sauce provides a healthy alternative to gravy.
In a small sauté pan, melt 1/2 teaspoon coconut oil over medium heat.
Place the sausage patty in the pan and cook for about 3 minutes on each side, or until your desired preparation is reached.
Meanwhile, in another small sauté pan, melt the other 1/2 teaspoon of coconut oil over medium heat and cook the egg, sunny side up.
Once the sausage and egg are ready, scoop a bed of Cauliflower Mash onto a plate, then place the patty on the mash and the egg on top of the patty.
In a small bowl, mix the coconut milk with the coconut aminos to form the “gravy”.
Pour the “gravy” over the egg and serve while warm.
As the Hawaiian’s say, ʻohoiho (enjoy)!
