So that New Year's resolution, the one to eat more vegetables? How's that going? We're still going strong here at Chez Milty, and partially in thanks to the kale and eggs I've been eating every morning. I know, kale is super 2015, but I like it and it is a nutritional power house, so I'm going to keep eating it. I'm a rebel like that. However, I was out recently (the horror), and I used spinach instead, which works great. So maybe this should be called greens and eggs? Either way, you're eating green things before 8am, so you're winning.
For a while, I was totally adverse to making eggs in the morning during the week. It meant that I had to get up earlier, and I hate that. Working in a school has totally changed my schedule, because that starts early. But, I've figured it out and now I like having breakfast before I leave. It sure beats eating in the car and subsisting primarily on the mediocre breakfast sandwiches from Dunks. While Elizabeth most certainly runs on Dunkin, I go there for the coffee and the environmental impact of the double cup #icedcoffeeforlife.
This is super easy, it's basically just scrambled eggs with green shit added to it. I've made kale and eggs here before, but those were different and more involved. This is totally doable for a weekday, even if it's not light outside yet.
Kale and Eggs
Splash of Milk
Dash of Hot Sauce
Handful of Chopped Kale
Salt, Pepper, and Garlic Powder
1 Slice of Bread
Heat up a pan and add your cooking fat of choice. I do butter for eggs, but oil is good as well. While the pan is heating up, break the eggs into a dish and add milk, hot sauce, and spices. As usual, the spicing can be adjusted to your preferences.
Beat the eggs, and then add the chopped kale. Mix it all together and dump into the pan. Give it a stir or three to get it going.
While the eggs are cooking, toast the bread.
Keep on stirring the eggs until they reach your desired doneness. Just before you're done, add a little bit of cheese so that it can get all melty and mixed in.
Pile the eggs on top of toast. Pour yourself your first cup of coffee (or your only if you're one of those magical people who can function with only one) and eat.
Question of the day:
What do you usually have for breakfast?
