    ClareVH's Note:

    According to my cookbooks, Joe's Special is a San Francisco specialty dating to the 1920's. I have seen several versions; what they all have in common is ground beef, spinach and eggs. This is not fancy, but it makes a great main dish for a light supper or brunch. I like to serve this with toasted Beer Bread and a fresh fruit salad.

      I made this recipe with ground turkey instead, with baby spinach, and added quinoa to make it a bit more hearty yet healthy and it was really good! Considering turkey has less sodium, I would have added more salt in hindsight, and I can see how the flavors may need more time to come out in full force so I can't wait to try the leftovers tomorrow. I will be making this one again, thx!

      Yummy comfort food. I like to add a diced tomato or two and some rice OR garbanzo beans. This is really nice.
