My Favorite Kale Recipe


The first kale that I ever ate came from my backyard garden. I read that it would grow in Florida during the fall and winter, and so I decided to grow it and hope that I liked it. 🙂

I absolutely love it! I think that it is my favorite green. This is my favorite way to eat kale; this recipe works well as a hearty breakfast or yummy brunch.


You just need a few ingredients; feel free to substitute or omit based on personal taste. I’m one of those cooks that seldom follows a recipe. I tend to get the general idea but substitute and omit and embellish quite freely. Feel free to do the same, and if you come up with another killer combination, let me know-I may want to try it too!


Wash the kale and tear it into pieces about the size of an egg. Saute the onions in some olive oil (or butter, if you want it to be really amazing), then wilt the kale and add the tomatoes. Sprinkle with a dash of kosher salt.

You could simply add the eggs at this point and cook it all together for a kind of easy omelet, but I like to scramble some eggs separately.


Layer the eggs, sauteed veggies, diced ham, and shredded cheddar. Let the cheese melt on low heat.

I love how the cheese melts into everything and binds it together a little. So yummy!


This is such a great way to start the day!

This week I also want to try making kale chips. Anybody have a favorite way to make them? I’d love to hear about it in the comments!

Yay for nutritious kale! How do you like to eat kale?
