When I’m visiting my brother on the North Shore, this is one of our favorite breakfasts before heading out to the beach or going hiking. A typical Hawaiian breakfast recipe usually include sticky rice, and either Portuguese sausage or Spam. Other Hawaiian breakfast foods include fresh fruit, such as pineapple, papaya or mango. Don’t forget a nice hot cup of Kona coffee, perfect for that boost before hitting that Haleiwa beach for a day of surfing.
Hawaiian Breakfast Recipe
- 6 Hawaiian Portuguese sausages and Spam slices grilled or sauteed
- 6 English muffins toasted
For the Eggs
- 12 large eggs
- 3 tablespoons chopped green onions or chives
- 1/2 teaspoon Hawaiian salt
- 3-4 tablespoons butter
For the Rice
- 1 1/2 cups glutinous sticky or sushi rice
- 3 cups water
- 1 teaspoon salt
- Prepare the Sticky Rice. Place water and salt in a pot and bring to a boil. Stir in rice and bring to a boil. Cover and reduce heat to low. Simmer about 15-18 minutes, or until rice is tender and water is absorbed. Remove from heat and serve.
- Prepare the Scrambled Eggs. Whisk eggs, chopped green onions or chives, and salt together in a bowl until well blended. In a skillet, melt the butter over medium-low heat. Stir in eggs and stir with a rubber spatula until the eggs aren’t fully cooked. You want them still slightly runny. Turn off flame and remove from heat
- Serve the soft scrambled eggs with a side of sticky rice, grilled Portuguese sausage, grilled Spam and toasted English muffins.
