Sweet or Savory? Today, Fried Egg Kale Toast is on my mind.
If you’ve read my ‘About’ page, you’ll know that I’m a huge fan of sweets. Yes, I absolutely love anything or shall I say mostly anything sweet, within reason. As for breakfast, I always go for sweet rather than savory.
Breakfast is my favorite meal of the day because the possibilities are endless. The thought of hot pancakes, waffles, or muffins with blue agave drizzled over the top or a yogurt parfait layered with my favorite topping, or a chocolate chip scone with vanilla glaze just make my mouth water. These are the types of breakfast ideas that warm my soul.
I decided to switch things up a bit. Wow, I can’t even believe I’m going there, but I am. Change is good – right? Well today, I did the unthinkable, and I’m sure you know where I’m going with this. This morning, I went full-on SA-VOR-Y, and I was pleasantly surprised.
Again, these are one of those times in which I didn’t want to go to the store so that meant that I had to be creative and use what was already in my fridge. I knew I had plenty of eggs in the fridge, but I didn’t want just a plan ole egg because that’s boring. I wanted to spice things up just a bit without getting too creative at least this time. I also had a bunch of kale and sweet prairie bread that I purchased at Sprouts a few days ago. With those few ingredients, I decided to make fried egg kale toast, and it was really good. The prairie bread had just the right amount of sweetness. It took all of ten minutes to prepare this light breakfast on this beautiful Saturday morning. After lightly toasting a slice of prairie bread, and layering it with the fried egg with kale, I took my first bite without any hesitation and was hooked. Yes, it was quick, light, and rich in protein.
Health Benefits of Kale
Kale also known as a super food is one of the most nutritious vegetables to date. It’s part of the cabbage family and has leaves that are either curly, flat, green or even a hint of red. This beautiful leafy green vegetable is packed full of vitamins, minerals and has been known to have cancer fighting properties.
