This recipe is perfect with the holiday season approaching. You can use up your left over stuffing from your Christmas dinner or use one of the handy Mr Crumb ready to heat stuffing trays. A really simple brunch or lunch dish that is a tasty and filling. Mr Crumb is suitable for vegetarians and comes in two varieties. “Apple and Apricot” and “Sage and Onion” are your choices and can be found in the chiller cabinets in your supermarket. Mr Crumb stuffings are made exactly how they would be made in your own kitchen. The onions are sautéed in butter first before being mixed with the fresh breadcrumbs, herbs and spices.
- 2 cups leftover Mr Crumb stuffing (any variety)
- 1 large egg, lightly beaten
- 1/2 cup freshly grated mature cheddar.
- 2 1/2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
- 2 large free range eggs
- 1 bag of spinach
- Salt and pepper
- 1.Put you leftover stuffing, the lightly beaten egg and grated cheddar cheese in a large bowl and combine well.
- 2.Heat half of the olive oil in a frying pan. Deprecate the stuffing mixture into 4 patties. Gently fry in the hot oil for 3-4 minutes each side or until lightly golden.
- 3.Cover the cooked patties in foil to keep warm. Heat the remaining oil in a frying pan and crack in the eggs. Fry until lightly golden. Meanwhile, add the spinach and a splash of water to a small saucepan, cover with a lid and wilt.
- 4. Put 2 patties on each plate. Cover with wilted spinach and place a fried egg on top. Season well with salt and pepper and serve straight away.
Obviously you can top the patties with whatever takes your fancy. Crispy bacon if you wanted a meaty option might be nice alongside the fried egg. For another vegetarian option try sliced avocado instead of the spinach. It’s a total winner!
