Bacon Kale and Swiss Cheese Egg Scramble

10-Bacon-Kale-and-Swiss-Cheese-Egg-Scramble

When looking for good deals on produce, sale items usually catch my eye first.

The next thing I like to look for is if the produce item is bunched together in an unusually large quantity, even if it’s at the regular price.

You’ve probably noticed before how a bunch of lettuce or spinach can vary in size.  Sometimes it’s on the small side and other times it’s just huge.

Say you find a huge bunch of kale that’s over twice the regular size. 

As long as the price is the same as it would be for a smaller bunch, it’s almost like you’re getting the kale for half price when buying the huge bunch at the regular price.

This is a great way to save money on produce in addition to checking out what’s on sale each week.

Of course the challenge is always making sure you use all of what you buy.

The bunch of purple kale that I came across while window shopping for good deals in the produce section was so large that it wouldn’t fit in a plastic bag.

I almost considered putting it in a vase when I got home because it was so big and pretty. 

But instead it went in the fridge and hung out like it was in its own condo until I used it up in various recipes.

Here’s a yummy and pretty egg scramble using kale.  It tastes so good with the bacon bits and green onion.

Let’s check out the ingredients.
