Cast Iron Skillet Crispy Kale and Eggs Recipe

 

kale and eggs recipeThis has got to be our favorite new breakfast.  When you sauté kale, it doesn’t get soggy like spinach (although I really love sautéed spinach and eggs too!), it gets crispy and mixed with soft eggs make them the perfect combo!

My latest obsession… pastured eggs!  Why?  Chickens roam free on green pastures, in the sunshine, and eat what they are supposed to, bugs, worms, and organic feed (make sure it doesn’t contain soy!).  Pastured eggs contain the highest nutrients compared to factory “super market” eggs!

Nutrient Dense Pastured Eggs

1/3 less cholesterol
1/4 less saturated fat
5 times more vitamin D
2/3 more vitamin A
2 times more omega-3 fatty acids
3 times more vitamin E
7 times more beta carotene

Oh and I won’t forget to mention the flavor of the eggs is out of this world!  Next to fresh eggs (from my next door neighbors), these are the best!  Fresh pastured eggs mixed with organic kale, makes this breakfast a nutrition powerhouse (Read why I LOVE Kale HERE!)!

On the contrary, it took me a while to love my cast iron skillet.  It was nothing like cooking with non-stick and I had to be okay with cooking with fat.  I refuse to use cooking spray in this house.  My favorite fats to cook with are coconut oil, avocado oil, olive oil, and ghee.  THIS VIDEO, by fellow blogger The Prairie Homestead, helped me tremendously!  She shows you specifically how to fry eggs in a cast iron skillet!
