We had Tyler Florence’s Smothered Pork Chops again recently (click link for first time) and I used the leftovers for a breakfast meal. My shot of the dinner meal didn’t turn out too well but it was very good.
I usually just shape the leftover mashed potatoes into cakes and fry them, but I wanted to go fancier and asked Bev to work her magic on them - she mixed in a beaten egg, flour, cream, and chopped chives. To fry I added them by the heaping spoon full to a 12" skillet coated with olive oil and shaped them into patties with the spoon back.
I nuked the pork loin a little to warm it and added it to the skillet to crisp, along with the potato cakes, and an egg cooked sunny side up in a ring mold with a glass lid on it – wish I’d taken a cooking shot. This is the result and it was totally delicious.
I'm now responding to your comments and hoping you will stop back by - photos best if enlarged by clicking on them.
Have a great day and thanks for stopping by Almost Heaven South.
