Some mornings I just want a hearty breakfast. Well this is just that kind of breakfast. The potato & ham patties can also be had for dinner with a white sauce or ham gravy… Simple and very good…
Potato & Ham Patties
1 medium sized potato boiled and mashed (you can also use leftover mashed potatoes)
1/2 cup onion diced small
1 cup of ham ground
pepper to taste
2 Tbs olive oil
Cook the potato in salted water and mash with a fork. Grind the ham and mince the onion then add them to the potato along with an egg and pepper. I don’t add salt because the ham is salty and the potatoes are cooked with salt, but you can add salt if you prefer.
Mix the ingredients together and form into patties.
Cook the patties in 2 tbs olive oil on medium-high until both sides are brown and crisp.
Cook your eggs in your desired fashion. I poached mine in a little olive oil. Click on the Coulis for my tomato recipe or you can buy a store bought bruschetta.
Top with a little Parmesan cheese and dive in.
