One of the things I love more than anything is making a hearty breakfast for my family.  There’s something about cooking up something delicious for the first meal of the day that fills my heart with joy.  Now, I’m not talking about a giant breakfast, I am a busy mom, that’s a fact Jack.  So how do you whip up something healthy and hearty in a short time?  One way is using leftovers and another is using products like Simply Potatoes, like I did for this recipe.  If you have an easy recipe using only 5 ingredients, you should enter it into the Simply Potatoes sweepstakes!  The winner gets $3000!  Imagine all the goodies you could make with $3000!

Don’t forget me when you’re rich and famous!  🙂  Let’s get back to this delicious recipe.  I whipped this plate of YUM up in a jiff!  I used Simply Potatoes Mashed Potatoes because they are fresh potatoes use only real ingredients and heated them in the microwave.  Then added them to a hot skillet sprayed with cooking spray in patties and crisped them up.  They will be a bit loose, but that makes them crispy on the outside and soft on the inside.  Flip carefully!  I heated up a can of seasoned black beans while the potato pancakes were cooking and then sliced up some avocado, fried a few eggs and to top it all off, I drizzled it with bottled salsa.  Everything is done before the potato pancakes are done.  All that’s left is 4 hungry bellies and some forks.
