Joe’s Special – A True Original

Posted on

After the ominous, but delicious, “Hangtown Fry,” Original Joe’s “Joe’s Special” is probably San Francisco’s most famous breakfast. Unless you’re counting the Buena Vista Café’s Irish coffee as breakfast, and now that I think about it, you probably should.

Ingredients for one huge portion:
NOTE: This version is mostly meat and spinach, but if you want something closer to a classic scramble, then cup the beef and spinach amounts in half. This is how most restaurants that copy the recipe do it!) 
1 tbsp olive oil
1/3 cup diced onion
1/2 cup sliced mushrooms
8 oz lean ground chuck
salt and pepper to taste
1/2 to 3/4 cup chopped, cooked spinach, squeezed very dry
3 large eggs
1 tsp chopped fresh basil
1 tsp chopped fresh oregano
Parmigiano-Reggiano to finish the top
