St Patrick's Day Breakfast featuring Thump*

*Patucci + Mark call it thump. Don't flame me if you call it something else. I've also simplified their recipe a lot.

this is the end result:
thump scrambled with eggs
First you have to make the thump. 
This works out better if you've done it the night before.

Thump (mashed potatoes and kale)
serves at least 4 gluttons

2 tbs olive oil
1/2 med onion, chopped
2-4 cloves garlic, mashed
1 bunch kale, ribs removed and coarsely chopped

6 medium potatoes, 3/4" cubes
bay leaf

salt + pepper to taste
butter is a nice final touch

In a large saucepan,
Saute onions and garlic until soft
Add kale as you get it chopped --
it seems like a lot, but it cooks down
Add a little water if the kale starts sticking to bottom
Cover and cook until kale is no longer crunchy (10-15 min)

While that's cooking,
Cube potatoes and boil with bay leaf until tender --
you will be mashing them

Add to cooked kale and mash with a potato masher
Add some of potato water if too stiff

The Breakfast Thump:
serves one glutton

1 tb olive oil
1/4 medium onion, chopped
About 1 cup thump
2 eggs

In a frying pan,
Saute onions until soft
Add thump, cover + cook until softened
Add 2 eggs, stir into mixture with a fork
Cover, cook until egg is cooked

I like to garnish mine with ketchup. Go ahead.
You can call me a weirdo.
