Veggies & Eggies


Makes breakfast for two.  Other dark leafy greens or leftover veggies may be used instead of the specific veggies listed below.

Approximate cooking time: 30 minutes


  • 4 strips bacon (reserve 1 Tbs bacon grease)
  • 1/4 yellow onion, diced
  • several leaves of kale, chard or spinach, chopped
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • 4 eggs
  • 1 avocado, sliced


  • Cook bacon. Remove from pan and put on paper towel to absorb extra oil. Crumble bacon when cool, and set aside.
  • Drain pan of all but a coating of bacon grease.
  • Sauté onion in bacon grease until slightly translucent. Add garlic and chard to pan, and continue to cook until tender. Remove to two plates.
  • With the pan still hot, cook the eggs over easy in the leftover juices of the sauté.
  • When the eggs are cooked, layer them on top of the vegetables.
  • Top with the sliced avocado and crumbled bacon.


  1. YUM! I had this yesterday morning, but used baby spinach because I had no Kale or Chard. I felt like I was eating in a restaurant!
    I did not put bacon on top, and I drizzled balsamic vinegar on top of the avocado. It added the perfect zest to the meal.

    This is a very simple and very delicious recipe! I actually forgot to add th spinach and it was still really good!

    I made this this morning for my husband and I. We both really enjoyed it, and it was fairly easy and quick! It reminded us of a meal that would be served at our favorite restaurant.

  5. Instead of the bacon, I would make it with a few leaves of grilled/roasted radicchio, and a drizzle of balsamic before serving.

    Ever since I started making this dish, I no longer feel like I am missing out by not eating potatoes in the morning. I made my veggies with kale, red bell pepper, onion, garlic and mushrooms. Wonderful! This is much tastier than any hash brown or biscuit breakfast out there. Love.
