With a nod to the English breakfast classics bangers and mash and toad-in-the-hole, we've used leftover mashed potatoes to create a quick and delicious one-dish breakfast.

How to Make It

Step 1

Heat oven to 375° with a rack in the upper third of the oven. Oil a 9- by 13-in. baking dish with 1 tbsp. oil. Drop 1/2-cup scoops of mashed potatoes into dish, spaced about 2 in. apart.

Step 2

Heat remaining 1 tbsp. oil in a large frying pan over high heat. Cook sausage, turning often, until golden brown, about 5 minutes. Scatter cooked sausage in pan, laying over and between potato mounds. Add spinach to frying pan and wilt, stirring occasionally, about 1 minute. Sprinkle spinach over sausage.

Step 3

Whisk eggs together in a large bowl until broken up. Whisk in flour, baking powder, salt, thyme, and onions. Pour mixture over sausage and potatoes. Sprinkle cheese on top.

Step 4

Bake until potatoes are bubbling, 20 to 25 minutes.

Step 5

Amazing! I used winter squash (Buttercup or kabocha) instead of mashed potatoes :)

Made this for the second time for Easter brunch (did for Book Club ladies once before). A great alternative to quiche or stratas...and the guys that love mash potatoes love this. I do a few more sausages and a bit more of the onions and thyme just to keep the flavor level up. Easy - - and different and delicious.
