Corn Cake Breakfast Stack w. Eggs Florentine

In a previous post, I shared my recipe for Corn Cake Toppers and showed how to serve them on top of chili and soup. I did a follow up post with a recipe for a Corn Cake Breakfast Stack with Bacon and Eggs.  There are so many possible variations for the breakfast stack. Today's post is another of my favorite combos. These are great served with my Parmesan Hash Brown Cups.

These breakfast stacks have 3 layers of ingredients: eggs scrambled with fresh spinach, Canadian bacon, and a corn cake. That's it. Easy, nutritious and delicious. Here's how to make and assemble them.

Step 2. Brown the Canadian Bacon in a skillet that's been coated with cooking spray.

Step 3. Meanwhile, cut some fresh spinach into 1/4" shreds and toss it in a hot skillet that's coated with cooking spary. Cook just until it's wilted--this only takes a minute.

Step 4. Whisk the eggs and add them to the spinach. I use a 1:1 ration of whole eggs to eggs whites--reduces calories and fat, while you get a protein boost from the egg whites. These cook up quickly.

Step 5. Season eggs with salt and pepper to taste.

Step 6. Put a warm corn cake on a plate.

Step 7. Add the Canadian Bacon.

That's it. Easy, huh?

VARIATIONS TO TRY. You can mix it up with different layer combinations and toppings. There are so many possibilities. Here are a few.

  • Egg layer- fried, poached, scrambled, or a sliced boiled egg
  • Meat layer - bacon, ham, Canadian bacon, sausage patty, crab cake, chorizo
  • Veggie layer - spinach, avocado, tomato, roasted peppers, sauteed mushrooms or onions, sprouts, fresh basil leaves, hash browns
  • Sauce on top - salsa, tabasco, hollandaise, guacamole, gravy, cheese 

MAKE IT CHEESY. Try adding cheese on top and melting it under the broiler.

FEEDING A CROWD? Set up a corn cake breakfast stack bar with a variety of layer and topping options, and let everyone build their own. Fun and easy.

 

This is stacking up to be a delicious breakfast. So good.
