Brunch time is King at the weekends, nice lazy starts so by the time you eat it’s halfway between Breakfast & Lunch. Plenty of time available to lounge leisurely over eating it with a hot cuppa & a Sunday paper. I was going to have Normal Potato Cakes with Bacon & Spinach but alas I had neither ordinary potatoes or bacon medallions when I went to look so came up with this instead. So tasty and filling at 6pp or free on F&H. I’ll see you all at Lupper!
150g Sweet Potato Peeled & Cubed
1/2 White Onion Finely Diced
Large Handful of Fresh Spinach
1/4 Fresh Nutmeg Grated
Salt & Black Pepper
Boil the sweet potatoes for approximately 10 to 12 minutes until soft. Meanwhile gently fry the onion in sprayoil for a few minutes until soft. Chop & add the spinach for a few minutes more until wilted. Drain the sweet potato well & place in a bowl with the spinach and onion mixture. Season well with the nutmeg, salt & pepper & divide into two forming medium patties. Fry in a hot pan sprayed well with sprayoil (a non stick pan helps) for approximately 5 minutes each side until golden brown. If I’m nervous of flipping something in case it collapses I always use the plate method: grab a plate that will fit in your pan & over the food, gently place it on top of the cakes holding it steady while you flip the pan so that the cakes are on the plate then gently slide them back in the pan to cook the other side, simples! Fry your egg in the usual way & serve it on top of the 2 cakes. Enjoy!
