Kale and Feta Egg Bake

A layered kale and feta egg bake is perfect for quick and easy dinners.

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.

Baked Eggs with Kale and Feta

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. ;)

    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

    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!

  3. says

    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.

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

    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.

    Oh man. I made this last night and it was soooo good. It tasted like pizza, except pizza isn’t this good. So healthy and easy to make too!

    • Running to the Kitchen says

      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 ;)

    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!

  7. says

    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) :)

    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!

    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 :)
