Serves:

4 to 6

Prep:

20 Min

Cook:

25 Min

Method:

Stove Top

Ingredients

3 c
mashed potatoes
1 lb
hot cooked sausage
7
eggs whisked
1 medium
onion diced (white or yellow)
1/3 c
minced garlic (whatever is on hand will work)
3 c
chopped spinach drained (was leftover from supper)
1 Tbsp
butter
3 Tbsp
oil
salt and pepper to taste
1/3 c
all purpose flour
1/3 c
yellow corn meal
1/3 c
green chiles chopped and drained

Directions Step-By-Step

1
In a (preferably) a cast iron skillet,over medium to low heat, saute the diced onion with the butter and oil. I like mine almost carmelized. Add garlic.
2
Meantime in a large bowl combine potatoes, flour, and cornmeal mix well with a fork to keep fluffy as possible.
3
Crumble sausage and drain spinach. Add to whisked eggs, mix well. Add green chiles last. Add salt and pepper.
4
Turn skillet up to medium high, add potato mixture to skillet allow to cook flour and cornmeal. Using a spatula divide and turn to brown both sides. If you want to cook in more oil it is best to add it prior to the potatoes.
5
Once cooked to desired crispness, pour the sausage mixture over the potatoes turn heat down to medium low and cover for 10 minutes or until cooked through.
6
You can add cheese if you do try ricotta for a creamier texture. Add to the spinach mixture.
7
Serve with toast or biscuits. Or alone! It was fast and cleaned out the fridge.
