 I have fond memories of my father taking me to a local diner on Saturdays
 for breakfast when I was young.  I had a ravenous appetite and frequently
 cleaned off the home fries from his plate as well as mine.  To this day I
 still love potatoes in the morning, but without the bacon drippings and
 fat.  The fresh spinach used here is a healthful alternative.
 
 In a medium saucepan, place the potatoes in enough boiling water to cover
 and cook for about 15 minutes, until tender.  Drain in a colander and cool
 slightly.
 
 In a medium skillet, heat the oil.  Add the onion and garlic and saute for
 about 5 minutes.  Stir in the potatoes, spinach, scallions, seasonings, and
 bottled hot sauce, if desired, and cook for 5 to 7 minutes over low heat,
 stirring frequently.  Serve hot with ketchup on the side.
