I'm always looking for creative ways to embellish the egg. Eggs are such a great protein and are oh so versatile. And for the novice chef, I find they're a fun way to begin one's venture into the kitchen.
This morning, tired of yogurt, I scoured through my fridge to see what was easily available for my breakfast. A bunch of fresh kale and eggs stood out from the crowd of norm's.
So the egg omlette with sea salted kale chips was what I put together. It was so yummy! The soft egg combined with the crispy salty goodness of the kale chips was an excellent combination.
Kale chips are very easy to make. The only problem is that I tend to eat them all as I cook them.
Start off with a bunch of fresh kale that has been washed + dried. Strip the center stem, then cut to desired size.
Lay your kale chips on a baking sheet and lightly drizzle a coating of olive oil.
Sprinkle with sea salt.
Place kale chips on the lower rack of your oven and broil on low. Carefully watch for the kale to begin to brown. Turn once, and allow them to broil lightly on the other side.
I tend to like mine with a little charred perfection. You have permission to broil yours to whatever level of done you prefer.
Oh my! So yummy!
You can stop here and place your kale chips in a sealed container for later snacking.
Or you can do this!
Line a plate with a bed of chips, then add this
A simply seasoned egg omelette. I just lightly peppered my eggs prior to cooking. The kale is where the flavor comes in.
Sometimes the simplest of ingredients make for the best of meals.
