Joe's Special

Joe's Special Recipe
Randy Mayor; Melanie J. Clarke
This San Francisco specialty turns straightforward scrambled eggs into a distinctive dish. To stay true to the recipe's roots, serve with toasted sourdough bread. Replace the chard with packaged, washed spinach. Use baby spinach to avoid chopping altogether.


4 servings (serving size: 1 cup egg mixture and 1 toast slice)
