How to Make Kale Breakfast Skillet Recipe

I can quickly saute the vegetables in a bit of olive oil until they are just tender and then plop my eggs on top, stick the whole skillet in the oven and within a few minutes call everybody to the table. It’s just that simple.

We like our vegetables sauted until they are tender, but not overly cooked so that we have a crisp bite still to the peppers and a bit of texture in the mushrooms. Of course, you can always cook your vegetables longer to get them to the perfect point for your family before you top them with the eggs. And, if for some reason you can’t find great kale in your area, you can always substitute with whatever green is in season, but spinach is always great!

And you can always add a splash or two of hot sauce or a sprinkle of red pepper flakes if you like things a bit spicier.

Here’s my oh so simple Kale Breakfast Skillet Recipe. Of course, you can enjoy it anytime of the day you want. Promise!

    Got the email notification this morning, looked interesting, so we had it for lunch. Substituted swiss chard for the kale, added some sliced and de-seeded chiles japones (just enough for some heat), a touch of cilantro, and some de-seeded, de-pulped, whatever, tomatoes from a friend’s garden. Topped it off with cheese and served it with fresh bollilos. Turned out pretty good. We’re definitely having that again.

  2. Robyn, I’m about to start the Whole 30 plan (gulp) so this is PERFECT timing for this recipe. Perfect! Thank you 🙂

    Hi, I just made this and it is AMAZING! I did add a couple chopped strips of leftover bacon to the skillet, but without it would have been just as delicious! Thanks for sharing!!

    1. Oh I can’t wait to try it with bacon now, Bree! I’m so glad you liked it! Thanks!!! xo

    I arrived home late from a long road trip.  In the fridge are kale, onions, peppers and eggs.  Really?!  Who could know that would lead to my new favorite breakfast, even late night.  I’m sure it is even better when I can plan to add mushrooms

    Thank you, Robyn

    Made a trip to the farmers market and had fresh kale, mushrooms and eggs, so I made this this morning. Great healthy hearty breakfast! I also served fresh sliced tomato and avocado on the side. Love when I can get 3 servings of veggies out of the way at breakfast!

    I needed to get rid of some sad and wilty kale so I made it this morning without mushrooms and with grated Parmesan on top and it was amazing!! The eggs were perfectly gooey and the whole dish was super flavorful. Will definitely make again!
