Every breakfast place in the San Fransisco area seems to have their version of Joe's Special - a local classic, invented in a restaurant in SF in the 30's. My version has a greater proportion of eggs, and the addition of ground coriander (and preferably chard over spinach). (Traditional versions have 4 eggs per pound of ground beef.) I often double everything but the eggs and refrigerate or freeze half before proceeding. We more often have this for dinner than breakfast.

Recipe Ingredients for Joe's Special Eggs

6 eggs
1/2 lb lean ground beef
2 tablespoons olive oil
1 cup sliced mushrooms
2 cloves garlic
10 oz spinach
2 t ground coriander (seed)
2 t Worcestershire sauce

Recipe Directions for Joe's Special Eggs

  1. A large nonstick skillet with the oil.

  2. Thaw the spinach if you're using frozen.

  3. Cook the meat. When it's mostly cooked, put in everything else except for the spinach and the eggs.

  4. When the mushrooms are mostly cooked, add the spinach and continue until it is all hot.

  5. Beat eggs with a little more salt and pepper. Add to pan and cook.

  6. Optional: Sprinkle with Parmesan cheese.
