A Hawaiian breakfast tradition

Hawaiians love eating this dish that consists of brown gravy, a hamburger patty, steamed rice, and a fried or poached egg. The components make it right for early morning and brunch. Meanwhile, the hearty ingredients will satisfy many appetites. Here’s the recipe:

What you will need:

1 wooden spoon
1 large bowl
1 to 2lbs ground beef, thawed
1 fry pan
1 garlic clove, minced
1 small yellow onion, diced
½ cup bread crumbs
¼ cup milk
1 whole egg, beaten
Pinch of salt and black pepper to taste
4 eggs, poached or fried (sunny-side up, over-easy, whatever)
Hot or warm brown rice
Gravy ingredients:
1 (10.5 oz.) can condensed cream of mushroom soup and an equal amount water
1 medium-sized onion, sliced
2 tablespoons Worcestershire sauce*
2 tablespoons soy sauce *
or substitute both sauces with 4 tablespoons Teriyaki sauce

Cooking and Directions:

Combine ground beef, onion, garlic, salt, milk, bread crumbs, beaten egg, and pepper in bowl. Mix well. Form meat mixture into four hamburger patties. Heat up fry pan on medium-high heat. Cook and grill hamburger patties to desired doneness. Next, de-glaze fry pan by sautéing sliced onion for gravy at medium-high heat. Cook onion until translucent and then add condensed soup with equal amount of water. Add desired sauces to pan. Mix well and bring to a slow simmer. Serve each patty over warm brown rice in individual serving bowls or saucers. Top each with an egg and loads of mushroom gravy.
