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.

I used Simply Potatoes Mashed Potatoes  because they are fresh potatoes 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 cooks while the potato pancakes are sizzling in the pan.
