Kale & feta egg bake

egg bake 3 v2

I’m kind of at a loss of what to say about this egg bake. It’s one of those dishes so simplistic that it’s hard to fully describe the depth of flavor and taste because it just doesn’t make sense.

Does that even make sense? You feel me, I know you do.

There’s kale, lots of FEH-TA, some sauce and two eggs. So you’ve got your vegetables, your dairy, fruit (tomato sauce totally counts as fruit) and protein all in one cute little ramekin, bowl or whatever you want to bake it in.

Making it reminds me of lasagna with all it’s pretty layers.

Start with the sauce as your base,

and then layer,

layer some more,

egg bake1

just a littttle more,

egg bake2

and voila!

egg bake 1 v2

This is my go to single lady dinner on the nights Ulysses works late. With a crusty piece of bread to soak up the runny egg and the melted feta, it’s near perfection.

Ok, add some red wine to that too.

There’s a million combinations of greens and cheese you could play around with on this. You could even add sausage if that’s your thing. Go crazy.

PS- I went with longer side swept bangs. It’s pretty much the definition of non-committal. ;)

    Feta is something I need to keep on hand – when I buy it I seem to not use it, when I want it I don’t have any! I’m thinking this would be great with spinach.

  2. 3

    this looks so delicious. i love the combination of ingredients you used here. yay on the side swept bangs! :)

  3. 4

    Love the flavor combo, kale and eggs is something I eat nearly everyday. I will definitely be trying this out in my new small ramekins!

  4. 5

    This is officially dinner tonight!

  5. 6

    I make something similar to this on a weekly basis, but I use chard or spinach and whatever cheese I have on hand. I love it with gruyere!

  6. 7

    Glad you went with the bangs:) This looks like the perfect single lady dinner. My boyfriend would definitely miss the meat.

  7. 8

  8. 9

    The food looks great (as always!) but I’m really in love with that cute little bowl!!! Love it!

  9. 10

    I love this! I’ve never made eggs this way, but it looks perfect for an individual meal. Or maybe even a smaller version for each of my kids? That would be awesome! Thanks for the inspiration – I think I’m going to try my own version for lunch today :D

  10. 11

    I’m drooling all over my keyboard right now. This looks amazing! I love feta with eggs. It’s my second favorite omelette cheese (after goat). But the drippy eggs AH that just makes it even better!

  11. 12

    With the exception of the kale, I have all of these ingredients on hand. I’m definitely bookmarking this recipe!

  12. 13

    This looks FAB girl and I can eat this gloriously on my diet right now, so I’m super stoked!!! YAY!!

    This looks so tasty! I’m currently on a kale kick, and anything with feta is awesome. Thanks for this!

  16. 17

    Jordan refuses to eat this so it is my go to meal when he is out. I never thought to add healthy greens. Great idea and I will be trying this out next time.

  17. 18

    Yum. I have some fantastic feta that is just begging to be baked with some eggs now. Eggs for dinner is the best. Especially when it is so nicely contained.

  18. 19

    Love it! I am binging on kale this week. I totally understand the need to scale back dinner when you have a night to yourself!

  19. 20

    I LOVE eggs. I LOVE Kale. And I LOVE feta. THank YOU!!!!

  20. 21

    Goat cheese would probably work too!

  21. 23

      I just got the bowl at the Le Creuset outlet by me. I could’ve done some serious damage in there!

  23. 26

    This looks so good! I LOVE feta. It’s definitely one of my favorite cheeses- I always have a huge tub of it from Costco in my fridge.

  24. 28

      Awesome, glad you liked it! I almost made it for dinner last night too but then I ate a whole can of roasted chickpeas instead ;)

  32. 37

    This looks really, really good. And so healthy!

  33. 38

    That looks crazy delicious! What a great idea. Thanks for sharing. I’m always looking for more kale recipes. ; )

  34. 39

    I make a version of this at least 3 nights a week – so simple and delicious!!!

  35. 40

    Subbed goat cheese for the feta, since that’s what was in the fridge – AMAZING! Looking forward to playing around with different combos. Thanks for the recipe!

  36. 41

    I just stuck this in the oven. Can’t wait to taste it! I have found lately that although I love good, home-cooked food, I have no desire to cook it myself. This recipe is too easy for me to be lazy!

      Running to the Kitchen says:

      Hope you liked it! It is definitely an easy one (and adaptable to whatever you have on hand veggie-wise) :)

  37. 43

    Just made this, and it was fantastic. I ate it with beer bread, but I could’ve just eaten it straight. I think it’s my new low carb meal of choice. Thanks!

  38. 44

    Jusst made this with salsa and cheddar. Delicious! I just sprinkled parmesan on top and it is PERFECT. Would be good with a dash of lemon juice too. Great meal. It’s now part of my regulars :)
