While Mom was making our breakfast, she was telling us about the depression which means there were no jobs and money was hard to come by. Foods were highly prized and never wasted.
She knew how to make all foods stretch. Also, she never forgot her heritage remembering the potato famine. As she was maturing; she thought to herself, the potato was the main stable of all our meals.
She often made this wonderful breakfast and we would keep eating until it was time to leave home and go to school.
The wonderful part of this recipe is you can add whatever you wish to the mixture that is vegetables and meat etc.
Four large eggs
One large mashed potato
Some lemon juice
One tablespoon of butter
One tablespoon of chives
Salt and pepper
Separate the eggs and beat the yolks. Then add to the mashed potato mixing thoroughly. Add lemon juice, chives, and salt and pepper. Melt the butter in a pan. Whisk the egg whites until stiff and stir them into the potato mixture. Cook the mixture until golden and then run them under the broiler to finish and puff it up.
