How To Make leftover breakfast skillet

  • 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.
