I found this recipe on Pinterest.
Yes, that addicting pin-board that has everyone going crazy.
I am a lover of spinach, and when this recipe came into view
I knew right away that I had to have it on my plate.
This makes the most awesome breakfast sandwich.
And if you want to throw a little romance into the mix,
fix this for that special someone in your life.
Heart-shape an egg to show them that you love them.
Toast an English muffin, smear on a little mustard,
and you have an awesome breakfast-in-bed.
With this recipe I added egg whites until I thought everything came together
perfect. I wanted to make sure that the patties would set as they browned.
I also used fresh spinach instead of frozen.
Make sure the first side is nice and brown before you flip them.
They held together nicely as you can see.
Say "I love you" with a spinach patty in a breakfast sandwich.
1 lb. fresh spinach, finely chopped
2-3 egg whites (add the two, and then if you need more add another one)
1 whole egg
1/4 c. diced onion
1/2 c. shredded cheese of your choice (I used cheddar)
1/2 c. Italian seasoned bread crumbs
1 tsp. red pepper flakes
1 tsp. salt
1/2 tsp. garlic powder
Mix all ingredients together well. Shape into patties and drop into a preheated (medium heat) oiled (I used cooking spray) skillet. Brown well on one side and flip. Brown well on second side.
