Meat & Potatoes. I promised a week of Meat & Potatoes. 6 recipes in 6 days. That’s a week in my book. So this is the last of these recipes.
My meat is sausage. Spicy Italian sausage. My potatoes are potatoes. Is that clear enough?
If not I should also say this is a recipe for flatbread. Meat & Potato Flat Bread with Mustard Greens. I added the mustard greens because spring has begun to sprung here in So. Cal and the hills are alive! Every spring the first things to come alive in the hills near my house are wild mustard plants. That means urban foraging to me.
I live in the Hollywood Hills. My street backs up to some L.A. County conservancy property, which bleeds into Lake Hollywood and the land owned by Department of Water and Power, and culminates in 4200 acres of Griffith Park. That is a lot of wild land in the middle of one of the largest cities in the world.
As I said, winter rain makes spring come early in California. Julie Andrews has nothinâ€™ on these hills, because they really are â€œaliveâ€ right now. That means the tasty young leaves of wild mustard are everywhere. So I was out bright and early today gathering a big bag of mustard greens. Naturally I just had to use them within hours of picking them. So they make an appearance here in the last of my Meat & Potato posts.
