"Dad's Eggs"- Simple Stovetop Eggs with Kale and Cheese
Course Breakfast, Gluten free, Main Course
Prep Time 2minutes
Cook Time 13minutes
Total Time 15minutes
Enough chopped leafy greens to cover the bottom of a 8-10 inch skillet
Chopped garlic if you wish
Chopped onion if you wish
Two eggsor one, or four if you’re sharing
4-6slicescheese. Dad always used sharp cheddar. I use what’s on hand but fuller flavor is usually more satisfying somehow and melty cheese is best- crumbly or hard cheeses don’t fill in the nooks and crannies. Today I used pepper jack.
Saute the greens over medium heat (garlic and onions too if you wish) to desired tenderness. I cook kale the longest, chard slightly less, and spinach hardly at all.
Lower the heat and add the eggs.
Then top the whole thing with the cheese.
Cover the pan and cook to desired doneness, for the whites to cook and the cheese to melt it usually takes around 10-15 minutes, if I’m using cast iron I’ll turn off the heat completely about 5 minutes in. I like my yolks runny but if you forget it’s still good.
