Single Serving Loco Moco

The nonsensically named Loco Moco is a hearty Hawaiian dish. It can be made with ground hamburger meat or a hamburger patty, or with Spam. Fried egg is most typically used to top the dish, but eggs prepared in whatever mode you like them will serve -- I used poached for the photograph.

It naturally makes a great breakfast dish, but can be eaten at any time of day. It is a great recipe for using up leftover meat or rice. To make Loco Moco, assemble the following ingredients:

1 cup cooked white rice
3 ounces Spam or cooked hamburger meat
2 eggs, prepared as desired (fried, scrambled, poached, etc.)
4-6 tbs brown gravy

If needed, ensure all ingredients are hot.
Assemble the dish by putting down a layer of rice, topped with meat, topped with gravy, topped with egg.

The dish is pretty simple, but it's known to sometimes be garnished with fried onions, parsley, green onion, or with basic sauces like ketchup or hot sauce. Don't overthink the garnishes as it's supposed to be a simple, basic sort of mixture.
