Use white potatoes leftover from dinner instead of sweet potatoes and shrimp or lobster in place of the crab if you prefer. — Chef Sarah Lee Myers


2 medium sweet potatoes, peeled and chopped
1 large shallot, thinly sliced
1/2 teaspoon sweet paprika
Freshly ground pepper
1 tablespoon olive oil
3 tablespoons butter
2 garlic cloves, thinly sliced
Finely grated rind and juice of 1 lemon
1/2 teaspoon Old Bay seasoning
12 ounces lump crab
4 ounces baby spinach
4-6 fried eggs
