healthy breakfast: kale and egg bake

Sometimes I embarrass my boyfriend when I rave about how gorgeous the kale is at the farmer’s market. It’s the little things that make my week. Also, a bunch of kale bigger than my head was $1. So, I’ll be eating kale all week, more specifically, kale chips.

Hey, it’s 7:10 a.m. and I’ve already had this healthy breakfast stuffed with kale and egg whites. Don’t let me fool you, I’m drinking coffee with Williams-Sonoma Hot Chocolate mixed in (see my new year’s resolution about honesty?). I made this egg bake the night before and zapped it in the microwave for a minute this morning.

Here’s how you do it:

  • Preheat the oven to 425 degrees.
  • Fill half a ramekin with your favorite pasta sauce.
  • Add 2 teaspoons of goat cheese.
  • Crack an egg.
  • Place in oven.
  • Bake for 15 minutes, and while you’re at it do last night’s dishes (what a champ).
  • Eat with garlic bread.

I ate this for dinner, but I think it could work as a breakfast.
