Cozy Egg, Cheese, and Leftover Potatoes Pileup January 25, 2012

Sometimes if I'm too tired to cook, and lucky enough to have a few ingredients in the fridge I just make a quick, but warm and cozy meal.  You probably have times when you don't want to cook or you're too tired. Instead of getting fast food, (which I am guilty of getting when I really should eat better and I don't mean the healthy fast food: salads, chicken breast, etc.  I mean, I need to up my blood sugar and right now kind of fast food! ) I will look for the basics:  egg, cheese, veg, and put something together quickly.  Because of that simplicity, I wasn't even going to make this into a post, but here it is...    


Starting at the bottom:  Leftover mashed potatoes made into a Potato Cake, with a slice of Provolone Cheese, topped with a Fried Egg and a little Parsley to pretty up for the photo.  My faithful and ever present tall Tea mug with scenes of London goes with the meal.  I can tolerate a little cheese and often go meatless, so this is filling, hot, and hearty and also quick to make.   I want this.  Now.

That's pure comfort food to me. We'll often make an omelet & throw in whatever is left over. We get what amounts to fast food only once a week or so when we are out food shopping.

I have to learn how to make Potato cakes because typically I throw out my leftover mashed potatoes and I would love what you just made above. It looks good and sounds so easy!

Well, this is not an authentic potato cake made from grating potatoes, draining the moisture, and all the rest... This is from leftover mashed. I think of real potato cakes as Latke sp? sometimes served w/sour cream or applesauce, those are really good, too.

Glas you all liked this, I had to post it after using Picnik to make the photo over. That yellow yoke hit the spot.
