Servings 2



  • Place the mashed potatoes in a bowl and sprinkle them with flour. Mix with a spoon or your hands until a dough comes together. Form into patties that are about 1 inch thick.
  • Heat a skillet on medium-high heat and add the olive oil and butter. Place the mashed potato cakes in the skillet and let them brown on each side, about 3 to 4 minutes per side.
  • Top with warmed creamed spinach and a poached egg, and salt and pepper. Serve immediately.

To poach the eggs

  • Heat a pot of water over medium heat until it is just simmering. Add in a splash of white vinegar.
  • Crack the egg into a bowl. Stir the water with a wooden spoon to create a “whirlpool" and pour the egg in the center.
  • Cook for 2 to 3 minutes, and then remove the egg with a slotted spoon.
