Kale Egg Bites Recipe

I posted this delicious looking photo of our breakfast this morning and was received by many requests for the recipe so here it is for everyone who wants in on this delicious creation! I first tried an egg bake like this at the Good Earth coffee shop in Kelowna and quickly started making them at home myself. There is a huge variety of ways you could make these: southwest bake with black beans, corn and mushroom, or ham and cheese, spinach and red bell pepper. This specific one was using up the last of my kale and an attempt to get more green veggies into all of our systems!

Kale Egg Bites

2 leaves of Kale, de-stemmed and sliced into thin pieces
8 eggs, whisked (I also added about a 1/3 cup milk)
2 tablespoons cottage cheese
2 teaspoons Mrs. Dash salt free all seasoning
butter for greasing pan

1) Grease a muffin pan.
2) Add cottage cheese to whisked eggs and combine.
3) Add kale and seasoning. Combine.
4) Pour into greased muffin containers to almost full.
5) Bake at 350F for 25-35 minutes dependent on how crisp you want the edges.
6) Allow to cool for 5 minutes then transfer to plate.
6) Enjoy!

So easy and quick and delicious!
