Bacon, Kale and Swiss Cheese Egg Scramble
Bring breakfast to life with this quick and easy egg scramble.
Kale adds such a nice flavor to scrambled eggs and it looks pretty too.
In this quick and easy recipe, real bacon bits, green onion and Swiss cheese are also added to the mix and it tastes so good together.
An egg scramble can really hit the spot in the morning for breakfast.
But this also makes a delicious light lunch and dinner too.
Breakfast for dinner is one of my favorite things to make especially because the ingredients are often on hand in the fridge.
The bacon bits in this egg scramble are Hormel Real Bacon Bits that are sold in a small container located in the salad dressing section of the grocery store.
They come in different sizes; bits or pieces and also in flavors like applewood smoke or jalapeno.
They’re great to have on hand for quick recipes like this one and also others like “Broccoli Bacon and Mandarin Orange Salad“, “Mostaccioli Pasta with Blue Cheese and Bacon” and “Browned Butter and Lemon Pasta with Bacon“.
Purple kale is used in this egg scramble which has a stronger cabbage flavor than the common green curly kale.
Feel free to change up the type of kale used in this recipe to the green curly version or other type you may like.
Let’s check out the ingredients.
Kale (purple, green or your favorite type), eggs, milk, real bacon bits, Swiss cheese, green onion, butter, salt and pepper
A printable recipe with the measurements and instructions is located at the bottom of this post.
Here’s how to make it:
In a medium size bowl add eggs,
Using Mickey Mouse Hand measuring spoons (just kidding about the measuring spoons of course)…
and salt (the recipe will still taste delicious if you don’t have the Mickey Mouse Hand measuring spoons…maybe not as good but real close).
…and set aside for a moment.
Chop the kale,
and green onions.
Heat a medium size skillet on medium heat and add butter.
Next, add the real bacon bits,
…and cook until the kale starts to slightly wilt (about 4 minutes).
To the pan add the eggs and stir together with the kale mixture.
Move the eggs around with a spoon or spatula as they’re cooking.
Continue to cook the eggs and stir together with the other ingredients.
Just before the eggs are done cooking (about 3 to 4 minutes), add the cheese.
Stir in the cheese with the egg for about 2 minutes or until it melts and the eggs are thoroughly cooked.
Garnish with chopped green onions and bacon bits.
Serve right away while warm and enjoy.
