Hello Deliciousness,

Egg-whites Schmeg-whites…. look at this healthy delicious nutritious breakfast! I decided I wanted to try something new for breakfast and came across this goodie. It’s so simple but seriously delicious. I really have nothing bad to say about this recipe and no recipes. I personally enjoyed this with some Franks Red hot overtop. I did include some additional instructions on how to cook a delicious poached egg.. which by the way is very simple! This recipe would also be delicious with some spinach and if you are not comfortable cooking a poached egg then a simple egg over easy will do just fine. You just need that deliciousness of the yoke to ooze over the top of the kale and potatoes.

Recipe as follows:

Ingredients
  • 4-5 leaves kale
  • 2 new potatoes
  • 1 clove garlic
  • 1/2 tablespoon olive or neutral oil
  • 1 egg
  • to taste salt and pepper
Instructions
1.) Remove stems from kale, chop into bite-sized pieces. Slice potatoes into uniform circles, about 1/8-1/4 inch. Too thin and they’ll burn, too thick and they won’t cook through. Mince garlic.
2.) Heat oil in cast iron or non-stick pan over medium-high heat. Add potatoes in a single layer and let cook without moving for 3-5 minutes until golden brown.
3.) Flip potatoes and cook another 3 minutes. Reduce heat to medium and add kale. Stir so all kale comes in contact with the pan and wilts. Add a teaspoon of water and stir briskly to soften kale.
4.) Bring a small pan of water to a simmer. Add an egg and let simmer on low while you finish cooking the vegetables.
5.) When potatoes are golden brown and cooked through, add garlic and cook for 1 minute until fragrant. Add salt and pepper.
6.) Serve vegetables topped with poached egg. Feel good about starting your day.
