Martha’s Loco Moco – Perfect delicious late night post party snack….
At my friend Martha’s party. It’s nearly 4AM (check out the microwave clock in the photo above!) Mostly the drunk brunch crew is still present. No playstation karaoke cds this time, but still a solid 6 hours of good partying thus far. (Excluding me cause I got stuck on a retarded N train and didn’t get in till about midnight.) Time to leave? Hell no, it’s time for LOCO MOCO YO!!! That’s right. Nothing like a late night Hawaiian snack being made in the middle of a party. Oh did I also mention it contains SPAM? That’s key my friend. Anyhow many of the drunk brunch crew were surfers in Hawaii in a previous life and this explains how this culinary gem washed up on the shores of Park Slope Brooklyn.
Loco Moco Recipe (adapted) – makes 5-7 servings
2 cans of SPAM (you can use hamburger meat, but then you’re a wuss)
1 can of Heinz meat sauce gravy
4-5 cups white rice
5-7 slices of toast (multigrain is nice)
Several tablespoons of paprika or as Martha likes Old Bay Spice
Fire up the rice cooker. Slice the Spam and fry on both sides. (Or if you are lazy, just toss the spam into the rice cooker and let it cook within.) Scramble the eggs with the Old Bay / paprika and fry. Toast the bread. Heat the meatsauce. Assemble your Loco Moco: Toast, rice, spam, eggs, sauce. Eat.
