Potato Patty, Spinach and Fried Egg

September 11, 2010

What a great way to start a Saturday or Sunday morning!  I love it when I have some leftover mashed potatoes (which does not happen often).  Breakfast can be ready in moments and sometimes I don’t even saute the spinach.  Just put it on the plate and the heat from the potato and egg will wilt it enough.  If you love these ingredients you will love this breakfast as it is better than any diner can do.  It is the 2 a.m. meal you might be looking for when time is of the essence, hunger is great and flavors need to be met.
