Pinoy Moco

Most people that have visited Hawaii are familiar with its famous Loco Moco and know it as a comfort food. My wife, Din, is from the Philippines and with that in mind, I made a fusion version mixing Philipine and Texas flavors.




- 1 egg

- 1 Longganisa sausage link

- ½ small white/sweet onion

- 1 cup fried rice. Click here for recipe.

- 1 pkg country gravy or homemade white gravy *(recipe below)

- ¼ to ½ cup shredded cheddar cheese

- Baby Bella Mushroom slices (optional)


- Cook Longganisa link in oven or toaster oven for about fourteen minutes at 350°, micro wave or follow

  directions on the pack.

- Cut onion into thin slices appx ½” long.

​- Using the large holes of a box grater, grate potato and place in a bowl. Pour water over potato until

  covered and let soak for about 5 to 10 minutes. This will prevent discoloration and help remove the

  starch. Then, Pour water out (I strain through a strainer or colander) and put potatos on paper towel and squeeze

  out as much water as you can, mix with onion and set aside.

​- Follow directions below for homemade gravy or directions on package of mix.

​- Cut Longganisa link in half lengthwise and then repeat on each of those halves. Cut all four halves into

  small pieces.  

 - Put butter in pan on medium-high heat and once melted spread potatoes in pan. Cook until brown on

  one side, then turn over, add Longganisa, mix together and finish cooking. Transfer to serving plate.

​- Cook over easy (or sunny side up) egg on medium low heat. Take your time, be patient and egg will

  come out perfect.

​- When gravy is done, leave it on low temp.

​- Sprinkle cheddar cheese on onion, sausage and potatoes. Pour gravy over all.

​- When egg is done, place on top of gravy and enjoy.
