Bacon, Kale and Swiss Cheese Egg Scramble

Bring breakfast to life with this quick and easy egg scramble.

10-Bacon-Kale-and-Swiss-Cheese-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.

Here are more breakfast recipes you may like “Breakfast for Dinner Ideas” and “12 Easy Breakfast Finger Foods“.

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.

TIP – The most important tip for making this recipe is the same one with all recipes that have eggs in them…never crack an egg over food.

It’s a good idea to crack each egg in a separate bowl first before adding it in with other ingredients (or in with other eggs).

This way, if the egg is bad (i.e. smells off or bad, or is discolored), it can be discarded before contaminating other ingredients.

1-add-eggs-to-bowl

In a medium size bowl add eggs,

and milk.

Using Mickey Mouse Hand measuring spoons (just kidding about the measuring spoons of course)

4-add-pepper

add the…

…pepper,

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).

Whisk together…

…and set aside for a moment.

green onions,

15-add-kale-to-pan

and kale.

16-stir-kale-in-pan

…and cook until the kale starts to slightly wilt (about 4 minutes).

18-add-eggs-to-pan

19-stir-eggs

Move the eggs around with a spoon or spatula as they’re cooking.
