Comments

  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.

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

  3. 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.

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

  5. 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.
