Ingredients

  • 3 oz. 85 g butter or coconut oil, divided
  • 8 oz. 230 g kale, chopped into large pieces (See Tip)
  • 8 oz. 230 g uncooked bacon, cut into 1/4" (.64 cm) pieces
  • 1 oz. 28 g frozen cranberries
  • 1 oz. 28 g pecans or walnuts, coarsely chopped
  • 4 4 large egglarge eggs
  • salt and pepper
This recipe has been added to the shopping list.

Instructions

  1. Melt two-thirds of the butter in a large frying pan, over medium-high heat. Add the kale and fry for a few minutes, or until lightly browned around the edges. Remove from pan, and set aside.
  2. Add the bacon to the pan, and fry over medium-high heat for 7 - 10 minutes, or until crispy. Transfer to a paper towel-lined plate to absorb any excess fat, and remove the bacon fat from the pan (reserve or discard).
  3. Reduce the heat to medium-low. Return the kale to the pan and add the cranberries and nuts. Stir until warmed through, and then reserve in a bowl.
  4. Melt the remaining butter in the pan, over medium heat. Fry the eggs for a few minutes, or until the whites are set and the yolks thicken. For serving, season with salt and pepper, and plate the eggs with the kale mixture.

Tip!

Pre-washed, baby kale can be used instead of kale. It's a terrific shortcut, and it will cook slightly faster than kale.

Switch it up with other greens... cabbage, chard, or spinach offer tasty variations. Or, make it a side dish by eliminating the fried eggs.

    This was delicious. I had to sub unsweetened dried cranberries because I couldn't find frozen. To add a little more flavor I topped it with a quick vinaigrette (red wine vinegar, dijon mustard, garlic, olive oil, salt and pepper) and a little parmesan cheese. I called it "Greens, Eggs and Ham" and even my kids gobbled it up.

    Since I can't seem to get hold of any kale around here (in Estonia), what would be a good subsitute?

    You can use any leafy green vegetable like spinach, bok choy or collards to name a few.

    This is a beautiful dish. The only thing I didn't like was the amount of kale per portion, too much in my opinion. Other than that, it's very tasty :)

    4 oz (about 113 g) is only 1.3 g net carbs

    I just made this with leftover juicy pork chops, and added a few chopped cherry tomatoes (didn't have any cranberries) and it is delicious! This is one of my favorites now, a perfect brunch.

    Super breakfast! I used smokey bacon, spinach, coconut butter, and cumin. Will be one of my favourites. Thank you DD!
